    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    this guide is great!

    i should know this, but i dont.... how do you change a file when the owner is root? (need to do this to complete step 4 where you paste the modules to the modules file located in /ect/modules)
    so, how do you do this? do you use sudo in the terminal?

    im new to this kind of thing, but i really want to do this. i just cant save my changes in modules.

    PLZ HELP!

    Run gksu gedit /etc/modules, and just paste it in.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    thanks so much for you help! i now now that my processor runs nice and cool with all stock settings and cooling.

    output:

    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0: +32.0C (high = +74.0C, crit = +100.0C)

    coretemp-isa-0001
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 1: +32.0C (high = +74.0C, crit = +100.0C)

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hopefully someone can help me. I've installed lm_sensors on intrepid and jaunty from source on my i7 setup and didn't have any problems. Lm-sensors detected all my cores,voltages, and etc. I just did a fresh install of Kubuntu 9.1 Koala and the first thing I did was install lm-sensors from source 3.1.1. Everything installed fine no hang ups on make or install and after running senors detect I ran sensors. This is what it gave me:
    Code:
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:       +25.0C  (crit = +6280.3C)
    How can I get my temps to show? I've been googling but didn't have any luck in solving my problem. My motherboard is a EVGA classified. I'm still a linux noob so bare with me.

    Edit:
    Please disregard my above question I got it working. I will put my solution down for anyone else experiencing difficulties.
    Copy and paste the below into /etc/modules and reboot after you save. I pasted it hours ago and just didn't reboot.
    Code:
    #Chip drivers
    coretemp
    w83627ehf force_id=0x8860

    someone might have said this already, but this works great with the command: "watch"
    this makes it re-fresh every 2 seconds.

    just enter:
    watch sensors

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Running "sensors-detect" identified w83627hf, but modprobe wouldn't insert it. Checking dmesg was the key.

    For 9.10, I had to add kernel option "acpi_enforce_resources=lax" to /etc/default/grub (2.x, or /boot/grub/menu.lst w/ grub 1.x).

    Then w83627hf for my abit K8 loaded w/o issue. Setting up the fan speeds w/ "pwmconfig" afterward was easy.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    ummm...a stupid question but what do the temp values stand for. I have a Dell Studio 1555 notebook with the GPU embedded onto the motherboard( all new laptops have them on the motherboard ). It would be appreciable if someone could tell me what the temp temperature signifies?

    Can't tell really, without the output of
    Code:
    sensors
    It could be the CPU temp or the chipset temp or both.

    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +54.0C (crit = +100.0C)
    temp2: +55.0C (crit = +100.0C)
    temp3: +57.0C (crit = +100.0C)

    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0: +45.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)

    coretemp-isa-0001
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 1: +45.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)


    Now??

    Now??
    The coretemp-isa-000X sensors sense the temperatures of the cores of intel dual core CPUs (1 for each core). I think acpitz-virtual-0 is the sensor of your laptop's motherboard, probably northbridge (with the graphics core in it), southbridge and a external CPU sensor.

    If you can see the temperatures in the BIOS (my laptop BIOS doesn't show them, but my desktop BIOS does) you can compare the values there with the values you get from lm-sensors. If you let your laptop run idle for a few min and then reboot into the BIOS the temperatures will be more or less the same.

    You can also stress different parts and see which temperature increases. For example glxgears (terminal) will stress your CPU and graphics core. And you might be able to tell which temperature is the southbridge by stressing your network (is likely connected to your southbridge) or copying files on your disk.
