    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    hi i need help with this my fan speeds al over the shop, so i tried installing lm-sensors and got this output... what to do next?

    This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
    to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
    and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
    unless you know what you're doing.
    
    We can start with probing for (PCI) I2C or SMBus adapters.
    Do you want to probe now? (YES/no): yes
    Probing for PCI bus adapters...
    Use driver `i2c-i801' for device 0000:00:1f.3: Intel 82801G ICH7
    
    We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
    Load `i2c-i801' (say NO if built into your kernel)? (YES/no): yes
    Module loaded successfully.
    If you have undetectable or unsupported I2C/SMBus adapters, you can have
    them scanned by manually loading the modules before running this script.
    
    To continue, we need module `i2c-dev' to be loaded.
    Do you want to load `i2c-dev' now? (YES/no): yes
    Module loaded successfully.
    
    We are now going to do the I2C/SMBus adapter probings. Some chips may
    be double detected; we choose the one with the highest confidence
    value in that case.
    If you found that the adapter hung after probing a certain address,
    you can specify that address to remain unprobed.
    
    Next adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 0500 (i2c-0)
    Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): yes

    Some chips are also accessible through the ISA I/O ports. We have to
    write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe though.

    Some Super I/O chips may also contain sensors. We have to write to

    1st of all, lm-sensors is only a monitoring program, it doesn't control your fan speed.

    You can open /etc/modules in a text editor to make sure your it87 is there. If it isn't just add it (you'll need root rights to edit it). The modules file gets read during boot up, to read the sensor's values run sensors in a terminal.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    If you have Intel i7 chip and 1366 mobo, see this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1056681


    This said I needed to get lm-sensors 3.1.0 and build it from source. The current version in the Ubuntu repository for 09.04 release is 3.0.2.

    However, you only need 3.1.0 to get sensors-detect to recognize the correct modules for you.
    Here are the correct modules for i7. This works even with 3.0.2 lm-sensors.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    I cannot get past "sudo sensors-detect" Sorry, no sensors were detected.
    Either your sensors are not supported, or they are connected to an
    I2C or SMBus adapter that is not supported. See
    http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/FAQ/Chapter3 for further information.
    If you find out what chips are on your board, check
    http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices for driver status.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    On my Laptop, I can only get one temperature to show: ACPI THRM CPU and lmsensors temp1, actually they are both reporting the same thing. I do not get my HDD temp or any other data. I can get my HDD temp by using the following command "sudo hddtemp /dev/sda", so I know it is available. I do get the HDD temp on my desktop.

    OK, please help me to get more data from lm-sensors.
    thanks

    AFAIK you don't need to run that mkdev script anymore. Just install > detect > add detected sensor to /etc/modules > reboot.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
    sudo sensors-detect
    sudo nano /etc/modules
    Also, lm-sensors is just a monitor. So it will only tell you your fan speed and not change the speed. I normally set the fan speed in the BIOS, but not every BIOS gives you the option to change it.

    Once you have lm-sensors installed and after running sensors-detect. When you run sensors if it shows some fan speeds then running pwmconfig might be able to let you control your fan speeds. pwmconfig is pretty straightforward. Afterwards you only need a couple small steps to get fancontrol to start on boot and you can control your fanspeeds. Maybe I should write a howto about it
