Hi..

I have owned tyan k8w motherboard which has analog device ADT7463 hardware sensor on it. I tried to find out the setting in the kernel 3.18-11. However, I couldn't find it in the I2c section or hardware monitor support section. Instead, I found the closest one ADT7462. I also tried "sensor-detect" command, but somehow that command cannot find out ADT7463. I am wondering what settings should be on in kernel in order to support that chip. So far, right now, I cannot see the motherboard temperature from the sensors command.

Anyone, please give me help.

See if the lm-sensors site supports your chip. Apparently the lm85 driver is used for the adt7463? Try that...

The sensor chip may also be on another i2c bus if your machine has more than one, try other i2c controller drivers.

Thanks..
I fixed it by myself. It's the module w83627hf not working.

I fixed it by adding this line in /etc/default/grub

Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet acpi_enforce_resources=lax"


Then,
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

To update grub.

And finally, reboot.
Now, sensors command works.

Also, I added lines in /etc/conf.d/lm_sensors

Code:
MODULE_0="w83627hf"
         MODULE_1="lm85"


And restart lm_sensors

Code:
/etc/init.d/lm_sensors restart
