    lm-sensors and w83627hf module problem

    I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10. I'm trying to use lm-sensors and the sensors-applet to see a number of things measured hardware valuue but I'm having some problems.

    I first ran the command sudo /usr/sbin/sensors-detect. It detected two modules that were added to the /etc/modules file:
    Code:
    # Generated by sensors-detect on Sun Dec  6 14:49:30 2009
    # Chip drivers
    w83627hf
    k8temp
    The k8temp module seems to work but w83627hf doesn't. If I issue the command "sensors" this is all I get:
    Code:
    staffan@bilbo:~$ sensors
    k8temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    Core0 Temp:  +54.0°C                                    
    Core1 Temp:  +51.0°C
    Doing a lsmod gives me a list of moduls and w83627hf isn't among them:
    Code:
    staffan@bilbo:~$ sudo lsmod

    Finally issuing the modprobe command fails:
    Code:
    staffan@bilbo:~$ sudo modprobe w83627hf
    WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release.
    FATAL: Error inserting w83627hf (/lib/modules/2.6.31-16-generic/kernel/drivers/hwmon/w83627hf.ko): Device or resource busy
    What can I do to make it work?

    Thumbs down Re: lm-sensors and w83627hf module problem

    I just solved this problem myself, by following the instructions here.

    That works! Thanks!!
    But what does that command (GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_enforce_resources=lax") mean?

    Re: lm-sensors and w83627hf module problem

    This is needed because of a safety feature which was implemented in the 2.6.31 kernel:

    http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/FAQ/C...inkernel2.6.31

    Altering the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX line is how you modify the Linux kernel boot commandline in Grub 2.0 (which is used by Ubuntu 9.10 as the bootloader).
