    serval temp sensors

    tearing into set-up on my new serval (GREAT unit- highly recommended) but having issues trying to get lm-sensors
    working. sensors-detect can't find any sensors beyond nvidia i2c...

    anyone got pointers to save this idiot a bit of time?

    Yep. I'm not having much luck getting it running either. This one will take some work.

    Re: serval temp sensors

    Check this link to find out current driver support status for your chip.
    http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices

    According to aforementioned website, i2c-* are the proper "bus drivers" for
    nVidia, and there are no "sensor chip drivers" so far.


    From their FAQ (http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/FAQ/Chapter2):

    "Which modules should I insert?

    sensors-detect will tell you. Take the modprobe lines it recommends and paste
    them into the appropriate /etc/rc.d/xxxx file to be executed at startup.

    You need one module for each sensor chip and bus adapter you own; if there
    are sensor chips on the ISA bus, you also need i2c-isa.o. for each type of
    chip you own."


    Try their FAQ/mailing list support.

    I am interested in this as well. Hope you're able to come up with something!

    I just got my serval today and I haven't had any luck getting temp or fan to work either.

    Any update on this?

    they sort it out.

    Re: serval temp sensors

    I've still not been able to figure it out. Sorry for not updating sooner.
    As best I can tell, lmsensors doesn't support the Serval's hardware.

    bummer.

    is anyone @ system76 following up with the lmsensors guys to see about compatibility, and what we
    could do to help get the hardware supported?

    Verbatim from http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices
    If you would like us to support a chip not listed below, or listed as
    'not planned', please contact us. Please indicate if you can help in
    development, testing, or donations. We don't have much spare time, so the more
    help you can provide, the better your chances to get a chip supported fast.

    i'll bet i'm not alone on that...
