    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    I am sorry, I should have probably quoted directly from the bottom of the page:

    In Gutsy the process to configure lm-sensors is much simpler. I installed lm-sensors and sensors-applet, ran sudo sensors-detect (and said yes to everything). It asks if I want it to automatically add the modules to /etc/modules, I said yes. Then restart to get the modules (one could do some modprobing, but just restarting is easier) . Then I added the sensor applet to my panel. -- SamTygier

    Err, sorry about that. I just saw all the instructions from this post and didn't realize I could get away with just doing that.

    Thanks!

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    I have done this but sensors-detect finds no sensors, which is odd as hardinfo finds two temps plus hard drive temp?

    What release are you using?

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hi, I got lm-sensors and it is working fine and found all my sensors and can be seen in my syslog and when I run sensors in the terminal I just have this one small problem:

    May 22 17:02:26 mark-desktop sensord: Sensor alarm: Chip dme1737-i2c-0-2e: V5stby: +0.00 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +6.64 V) [ALARM]

    V3.3: +3.34 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +4.38 V)
    V5: +5.15 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +6.64 V)
    V12: +12.18 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +15.94 V)
    V3.3stby: +3.34 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +4.38 V)
    Vbat: +3.25 V (min = +0.00 V, max = +4.38 V)
    CPU_Fan: 1781 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    Fan2: 1324 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    Fan4: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    RD1 Temp: +38.7C (low = -127.0C, high = +85.0C)
    Int Temp: +38.8C (low = -127.0C, high = +85.0C)
    CPU Temp: +47.2C (low = -127.0C, high = +85.0C)
    cpu0_vid: +1.550 V

    Is there anyway to disable this V5stby sensor so I stop getting this message every minute?

    Update: OK, I made a change in sensors3.conf according to the instructions and added

    ignore in0


    which is identified in sensors3.conf as V5stby like this

    label in0 "V5stby"


    I added it after the chip "dme 1737-*" statement.

    sensors3.conf has a very good information and instruction section at the top.
    I wish more .conf files were written like that.

    I then ran sensors -s as suggested but sensord still reports an alarm on soft boot (ctrl-alt-Backspace) and the syslog reports this every minute.

    The sensors applet no longer lists this sensor so the change seems to have worked for that but how can I change the sensord configuration since it appears that my motherboard does not seem to be using this particular sensor. It is an ASUS A8AE-LE motherboard (OEM) used in the HP Pavillion an1330 and others.

    OK, fixed that. Hard reboot necessary. Duhhh... it is a hardware type thingy...

    RTFM as they say...

    I just hope this provides some help for someone.


    I have tried this on both amd64 and 386i Hardy on this machine and can confirm that it works for both. No changes are necessary.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hello,

    I am new to Ubuntu and have been having issues with my Sony PCV-RX550. When running xsensors my fan1 is running at ~4200 RPM - so it is a little loud. I've been working through directions on this page and others and seem to be making some progress, but I can't get the fan to slow down (expect when running pwmconfig correlation).

    I've been able to change some of my settings as follows (not sure how useful they are, but at least I've been able to change them):

    Settings of hwmon0/device/pwm2:
    Depends on
    Controls hwmon0/device/fan2_input
    MINTEMP=37
    MAXTEMP=41
    MINSTART=90
    MINSTOP=75
    MINPWM=75
    MAXPWM=80

    Settings of hwmon0/device/pwm1:
    Depends on hwmon0/device/temp1_input
    Controls hwmon0/device/fan1_input
    MINTEMP=37
    MAXTEMP=41
    MINSTART=150
    MINSTOP=135
    MINPWM=135
    MAXPWM=140

    When I run 'fancontrol start' I get the following message:
    Enabling PWM on fans...
    Starting automatic fan control...
    /usr/sbin/fancontrol: line 265: ${tsens}: ambiguous redirect
    Error reading temperature from /sys/class/hwmon/
    Aborting, restoring fans...
    Verify fans have returned to full speed

    Not sure if this is useful, but when running sensors I get:
    w83627hf-isa-0290
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    VCore 1: +1.71 V (min = +1.65 V, max = +2.05 V)
    VCore 2: +0.05 V (min = +1.65 V, max = +2.05 V)
    +3.3V: +3.33 V (min = +2.82 V, max = +3.79 V)
    +5V: +5.13 V (min = +2.61 V, max = +3.09 V)
    +12V: +11.80 V (min = +14.47 V, max = +11.61 V)
    -12V: -12.11 V (min = +1.95 V, max = -1.83 V)
    -5V: +3.54 V (min = +5.10 V, max = +0.93 V)
    V5SB: +5.56 V (min = +5.91 V, max = +5.03 V)
    VBat: +1.55 V (min = +1.76 V, max = +0.29 V)
    fan1: 4218 RPM (min = 3534 RPM, div = 2)
    fan2: 2177 RPM (min = 1584 RPM, div = 4)
    fan3: 0 RPM (min = 3082 RPM, div = 2)
    temp1: -48.0C (high = +123.0C, hyst = -18.0C) sensor = thermistor
    temp2: +38.0C (high = +80.0C, hyst = +75.0C) sensor = diode
    temp3: +37.0C (high = +80.0C, hyst = +75.0C) sensor = thermistor
    cpu0_vid: +1.750 V
    beep_enable:enabled

    Any suggestions? Thanks for any help...I'd like to actually run Ubuntu and move away from Windows a bit, but this fan speed is too much!

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    I really appreciate the ubuntu community for all of its kind efforts to help people. But it is really ridiculous that it takes such canoodling to get something as simple as temp sensors to work. And the only reason I need them to work is because Ubunut 8 is running so hot--despite the pre-release hype about running cooler than ever--that I fear I will fry my computer.

    But thanks, again. Anybody recommend a good alternative to Ubuntu?

    Boy, you're in for it now!

    I'm pretty sure there are lot's of threads that discuss alternatives...but..since you asked...

    I REALLY like Sidux. It's Debian based, takes less than 6 minutes to install (YMMV), and it's phenomenally easy to keep state-of-the-art (something I really enjoy) with it's "smxi" script. (It's KDE by default, though..if that's an issue for you.)

    I don't know if configuring lm-sensors will be any easier (it's been awhile since I did that), but their IRC room is extremely helpful.

    I tried a dozen or so distros before I landed on Sidux, and I literally stopped distroshopping when I found it.

    But that's the cool thing about *nix--there's' something perfect (or nearly so) for everyone!

    1. Open a terminal and do the ol' sudo apt-get install and install lm-sensors and sensors-applet.
    2. After the install, run sudo sensors-detect and say Yes to everything.
    3. Restart your computer.
    4. Right-click the bar at the top of the screen and select Add to Panel. Find Hardware Sensors Monitor and click Add.


    You can also type "sensors" into the terminal and get a readout like this:

    fan2: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    fan3: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    fan5: 0 RPM (min = 0 RPM)
    temp1: +32.0C (low = +127.0C, high = +127.0C) sensor = transistor
    temp2: +36.0C (low = +127.0C, high = +70.0C) sensor = thermal diode
    temp3: +80.0C (low = +127.0C, high = +127.0C) sensor = transistor
    cpu0_vid: +1.550 V


    A couple people asked this a while ago in this thread, and didn't get an answer as far as I saw, so I'll ask again: Anyone know what temp3 is?!?

    I asked Gigabyte about the temp readings from my it8718 on my Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H (rev 1.0) and they said temp3 is the reading from the Northbridge. But they gave no details as to how it is wired so as to get a useful calculation of the actual temperature. I'm getting 87 degrees which seems rather crazy. Does anyone have more details about the proper calculation for this sensor?
