    First of all: Welcome to ubuntuforums.

    No offense, but if you post stuff from the terminal please put it in a code box (the # button in the post editor) instead of using quote boxes. It keeps the posts smaller and prevents smilies.
    Code:
    code box :)
    That said, it seems you're also using a self compiled lm-sensors. A lot has happened since October 2004 and unless your hardware is so new that the lm-sensors in the ubuntu repository doesn't support the sensor chips in your machine yet, there is no need to compile the lm-sensors from http://www.lm-sensors.org/


    I just installed a fresh ubuntu 11.10 and all I neded to do was:

    1: Open a terminal and do
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
    2: Do
    Code:
    sudo sensors-detect
    Unless you have run sudo sensors-detect before, answer all questions with "yes" (default for all but the last question).

    3: Do
    Code:
    sudo service module-init-tools start
    or reboot (both have the same effect).

    4: Do
    Code:
    sensors
    and you'll see the output of the sensors that have been found on your machine.


    If at step 2 you answered the last question with "no", you'll need to ad the sensors sensors-detect found to /etc/modules manually. Open /etc/modules in an editor
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/modules
    and copy+paste what sensors-detect found for you (between the #----cut here---- lines).

I compiled it from there and eventually I'd managed to coax it into working, which its now stopped.

    I'm going to guess then the best thing to do is try and purge my system of all this stuff and reinstall from the repos to see if they now work? I guess sudo aptitude remove lm-sensors --purge will uninstall anything added by the repos but removing the stuff I compiled?

    Thanks for your help
    That's what I'd do. I rarely compile stuff and can't remember uninstalling something I complied, ever. But if I'd have to, I'd try using synaptic.

    Cheers. It turns out the lm-sensors in the lucid repos must be still quite out of date, the sensors-detect it installs is old and doesn't detect any sensors... This leaves me back to trying to install the current version (after purging the repos one) from source which has this issue in it.

    Interestingly if I compile it and then install the repo on top (undoubtedly not a safe way to go about things), it stops complaining when I try to start the service and gives the impression that it's working! Doing sensors tells me its not... Also, when I try to see if modprobe will actually work for my sensors sets, coretemp and it87 (e.g., sudo modprobe coretemp), I get this error:
    Code:
    FATAL: Error inserting coretemp (/lib/modules/2.6.32-34-generic/kernel/drivers/hwmon/coretemp.ko): No such device
    Unless there's any sudden flashes of inspiration or there's a really simple fix knocking about somewhere we've overlooked, this is the point where I decide that being able to monitor temps, especially now that summer's well and truly over, is probably not that important in the grand scheme of things and that I can wait until the next LTS to see if I can get a working lm-sensors!

    Thanks a bunch for your help miegiel, I really appreciate it!

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hello all!
    I installed Ubuntu Server 11.10 64 bit, of HP Proliant DL 380 G4.

    root@Server2:~# sensors
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +8.3C (crit = +31.3C)
    root@Server2:~#



    What is the problem?

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hey everyone, I'm trying to configure the sensors but the thing is... I'm a complete noob. But ubuntu is so pretty I wanted to install it hahaha, so I'll be asking for some help... Even if my questions seem completly dumb, if I ask it's because I couldn't understand any of the solutions proposed/that I found while surfing.


    Ok, so I just tried doing what miegiel did, and this is the result.

    Code:
    Driver `coretemp':
      * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)
    
    Driver `sbs':
      * Bus `i915 gmbus dpc'
        Busdriver `drm', I2C address 0x0b
        Chip `Smart Battery' (confidence: 5)
      * Bus `i915 GPIOD'
        Busdriver `drm', I2C address 0x0b
        Chip `Smart Battery' (confidence: 5)
    So, I answer yes when asked if I want to load them to modules, and then run the sudo service start thingy (yes, I'm a complete noob) and this is the return:

    Code:
    Do you want to add these lines automatically to /etc/modules? (yes/NO)y
    Successful!
    
    Monitoring programs won't work until the needed modules are
    loaded. You may want to run 'service module-init-tools start'
    to load them.
    
    Unloading i2c-dev... OK
    Unloading i2c-i801... OK
    Unloading cpuid... OK
    
    envy@ubuntu:~$ sudo service module-init-tools start
    [sudo] password for envy: 
    module-init-tools stop/waiting
    After that, when I run sensors, this is the return

    Code:
    envy@ubuntu:~$ sensors
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:        +58.0C  
    
    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0:       +53.0C  (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    Core 1:       +53.0C  (high = +105.0C, crit = +105.0C)
    I'm wondering if there's something I'm doing wrong because I don't get voltage readings or ... any of the other stuff I've seen around. Also, I really think it doesn't but I was wondering if anybody knew if this laptop had a temp sensor for the ati chip?

    I'm running 11.10 x64 on an HP Envy13. If you need any other info you consider relevant, please ask.

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hi! I have the same problem.

    $ sensors
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +50.0C (crit = +100.0C)
    temp2: +47.0C (crit = +100.0C)
    temp3: +58.0C (crit = +100.0C)

    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0: +48.0C (high = +90.0C, crit = +90.0C)

    coretemp-isa-0001
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 1: +48.0C (high = +90.0C, crit = +90.0C)

    $/usr/sbin/pwmconfig
    # pwmconfig revision 5770 (2009-09-16)
    This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm)
    controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on
    your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm
    circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm.

    We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls.
    The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed
    after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you
    physically verify that the fans have been to full speed
    after the program has completed.

    /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed
    So in short i think my MOBO cant control the RPM of the fans. I cant check RPM even in BIOS so some "application based" control would seem strange to me at least.

    BTW i am running on DELL Studio 1555 and Debian/6.0.4(stable Squeeze)
    BTW2() GKRell is a nice app to have installed as monitor.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    1. Any idea what this error is?
      • Code:
        niglas@machine ~ $ service module-init-tools start
        start: Rejected send message, 1 matched rules; type="method_call",   sender=":1.125" (uid=1000 pid=14895 comm="start module-init-tools ")   interface="com.ubuntu.Upstart0_6.Job" member="Start" error   name="(unset)" requested_reply="0" destination="com.ubuntu.Upstart"   (uid=0 pid=1 comm="/sbin/init"

    2. The sensor section in hardinfo is still empty, how do I get it in there?
    3. Core 1 & 2 are pretty self explanatory, but what are temp1, temp2 & Physical id 0?

    Full output:

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hello,

    I've tried to install lm_sensors several times, but it doesn't seem to recognize the smsc EMC2103-2 Sensor my notebook (2530p) uses. When I do sensors detect it says:

    Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
    standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
    Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): y
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'... No
    Trying family `SMSC'... Yes
    Found unknown chip with ID 0x4501
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'... No
    Trying family `SMSC'... No
    Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'... No
    Trying family `ITE'... No
    "Found unknown Chip", but in the documentation I can see, that the EMC2103-2 sensor is supported. Does somebody know how to force sensors, to use the EMC2103-2 Sensor? I'm 100% certain that it is the EMC2103-2 sensor, because I use it under windows as well.
