Hi,
i get the same Error as jerome187 got.
I am using the vanilla-sources 2.4.22 and the i2c 2.8.0 patch.
Any clue why this happens and how to fix it?

Code:
make: *** [kernel/busses/i2c-amd8111.o] Error 1
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

!!! ERROR: sys-apps/lm_sensors-2.7.0 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 31, Exitcode 2
!!! lm_sensors requires the source of a compatible kernel\nversion installed in /usr/src/linux and >=i2c-2.7.0 support built as a modules this support is included in gentoo-sources as of 2.4.20-r1

You don't seem to be using version 2.8.0 of lm_sensors and i2c. I did this by adding the following to my /etc/portage/package.unmask:

Code:
sys-apps/lm-sensors
sys-apps/i2c

Hi.

I have a Gigabyte 7VRXP with a Via KT333 / Via 8233A chipset on a 2.4.20-gentoo-r7 kernel.

I've followed the instructions in the installation thread, but when i try to run 'sensors' i only get this:

# sensors
flex scanner jammed

tried to ask google, but he didn't know :(

PostPosted: Sat Sep 27, 2003 4:22 pm    Post subject: i2c-amd756 seems to hang after ltime Reply with quote

Not sure if anyone can help me out with this one. My only machine out of four Gentoo boxes that seems to hate lm_senesors. This is an older settup. I am using a Gigabyte GA-7IXE motherboard with an Athlon 800 cpu. The chipset on this board; AMD 750, consisting of AMD 751 PCI/AGP and AMD 756 PCI ISA IDE Controller. Now after running sensors detect. The program returns with modules to load. i2c-amd756, w83781d and eeprom. I load these modules into the kernel with i2c-dev.o and everything seems to run good for a while. But eventually things go South and wacky. A quick look at the kern log tells me

kernel: i2c-amd756.o: SMBus collision!]
kernel: i2c-amd756.o: Busy wait timeout! (0800)
kernel: i2c-amd756.o: Sending abort.

Once this starts it will just stay this way until I reboot the machine. (and spams my log all up)
If anyone has some sort of resolution to this problem it would be much appreciated. It is driving me nuts!

i have a Gigabyte GA-7VT600 with a VIA KT600 chipset.

i have tryed all of these settings for it87
Code:

 diode diode diode 0x07
 diode diode thermistor 0x23
 diode thermistor diode 0x15
 diode thermistor thermistor 0x31
 thermistor diode diode 0x0e
 thermistor diode thermistor 0x2a ** default
 thermistor thermistor diode 0x1c
 thermistor thermistor thermistor 0x3


then wrote the temps down & rebooted, none even came close to the temperatures my bios was saying. that or the temperature seriously jumped or dropped during reboot.

the ones that seemed most possible (no negative ones) were these:
Code:

diode thermistor diode 0x15
 diode thermistor thermistor 0x31
 thermistor thermistor diode 0x1c


but again were about 20 degree's C off in temperature


according to my bios my system temp is 33 degree's C and my CPU is at 58 degree's C.

these three told me that my CPU was either at 30 something or 70 something.
:-|

anyone know what the setting is for my exact mobo (and yes i've searched but i'm gonna continue after posting , but without hope)

So did anyone get it to work with 2.6 kernels?

You can't emerge lm-sensors anymore because of the kernel diffrence.

Help would be very much appreciated cuz I am trying to get it to work for ages now.

all i can say is that it did work...dont know what i did but after first install of 2.6.0 i got cpu temp in gkrellm, but i recopiled with a config from scratch and puff..gone it was 8O

2.4.24, but doing it the same way I have for the last few kernels. No i2c stuff is builtin to kernel, some as modules. Made sure no i2c modules were loaded, then from freshly untarred i2c-2.8.2:
make all
make install
depmod -a
Seems to go fine

Then from fresh lm_sensors-2.8.2:
make all
make install
depmod -a
ldconfig
modprobe i2c-core
modprobe i2c-dev
modprobe i2c-nforce2
prog/detect/sensors-detect
When asked to probe for non-detectable adapter, I answer no and get the following for my trouble.

Can't exec "i2cdetect": No such file or directory at prog/detect/sensors-detect line 4061, <STDIN> line 3.
Couldn't find i2cdetect program!! at prog/detect/sensors-detect line 4061, <STDIN> line 3.

i2cdetect is, of course in the same dir as sensors-detect script. Here's the referenced line from sensors-detect (in bold):

# i2cdetect -l either cats /proc/bus/i2c or scans sysfs for the same information
open INPUTFILE,"i2cdetect -l |" or die "Couldn't find i2cdetect program!!";
while (<INPUTFILE>) {

Here's /cat/proc/bus/i2c:

mark@hnllhi1-ar6-4-7-247-127 mark $ cat /proc/bus/i2c
i2c-0 smbus SMBus nForce2 adapter at 5000 Non-I2C SMBus adapter
i2c-1 smbus SMBus nForce2 adapter at 5040 Non-I2C SMBus adapter

What am I missing?

i2c-cvs and lm_sensors-cvs also behave identically

Hi,

Mobo: ECS K7S5A Pro with Athlon XP 2000+, 512 MB RAM
kernel: gs-sources : 2.4.23_pre8
lm-sensors: I don't know because I don't have the PC here. I know that is the last stable, because I updated this morning the system with
emerge sync
emerge system
emerge world
ic2: the same

The problem: I can modprobe and I do
i2c-core
i2c-dev
i2c-proc

then I get an empty dir either under /dev/i2c , either under /proc/i2c

If I run sensors-detect I get a no /dev error with the suggestion of trying
to run some prog/mkdev.sh script, that I can't find on my hd.

I tried also to modprobe it81 that could be the sensor of my mobo and it
load, but there are no improvement in the previous behaviours.

sensors can't find any sensors.

I tried also to load manually all the modules under
/lib/modules/linux-2.4.23_pre8/kernel/drivers/i2c/bus.
After that sensors-detect works, but I get some nice kernel oops.

What can I try? Also a ponter to the right docs is really welcome.

Best regards,

Andrea

I had to change mobo due to hardware problems, and now I have exactly same problem as andrea. I did a fresh install, put those modules there, but sensors-detect doesn't find a thing. There isn't even a /proc/i2c directory! There is a /dev/i2c directory, but that's empty.
My motherboard is an Intel D875PBZ.

I'll have to read the lm-sensors docs, as suggested by the package install.
If you do lsmod what do you see? Are i2c-core, i2c-proc and i2c-dev loaded. I don't know, but I think that they are neede to have lm-sensors working. Anyway I have they loaded, but sensors-detect doesn't work, neither sensors. Now I installed the new kernel for gss-sources, I'll have to try again to installa lm-sensors.

PostPosted: Sat Jan 31, 2004 4:00 pm    Post subject: can't access /proc file for writing Reply with quote

I would like to access my sensors (CPU/MB temp etc.) through (Super)Karamba.

Thus far, I have lm_sensors working to the point that I get (apparently correct) readings when I run the 'sensors' program.

However, when I try to run 'sensors -s', as recommended everywhere, I get the following error messages:

Code:

as99127f-i2c-0-2d: Can't access /proc file for writing;
Run as root?
via686a-isa-e200: Can't access /proc file for writing;
Run as root?


And yes, I ran this as root! The /proc filesystem is available and there are relevant entries in /proc/sys/dev/sensors. There is no /proc/sensors, however.

As far as I understand it, Karamba uses the 'sensors' program to fetch it's readings. But 'sensors -s' is necessary to make labels such as 'temp1', etc., isn't it?

When I run 'sensors', I get the following output:

Code:

That weird 200ºC to -200ºC sensor is wrong. It is probably not even a sensor but something your mb thinks is a temp sensor. Your cpu is very probably one of the others. Generaly there's one wacked, one hot (your cpu at 30-60), and one less hot (your mb chipset at 30-50)[/b]

However, I cannot get gkrellm2 or ksensor or karamba to use the reading. For instance, gkrellm2 just has the options for sensors "gray" and cannot be chosen

Any ideas?

That sounds like the same problems I'm having. There is no /proc/sensors here, but the readings are okay in /proc/sys/dev/sensors. I cannot do 'sensors -s'.

I have not yet been able to solve this, but I have a workaround to get the readings into Karamba. Instead of 'sensor=sensor etc.', I use:

Code:
sensor=program program="echo `awk ' { print ($3) } ' /proc/sys/dev/sensors/as99127f-i2c-0-2d/temp1` °C"


This works fine for me. But you'll have to adjust the raw readings yourself (for me, CPU temp is 2*temp2), for example.

Maybe this can help you.

for some reason, ksensor DOES give me readings now, but gkrellm2 two does not. (Super)karamba now can show one temp (out of 3) en the 3 fans

not sure what is the problem. I cannot do sensors -s either.

Thinking maybe the labels aren't set correctly because of that?

Has anyone looked into this yet? I have the same problem (kernel 2.4.22-gentoo-r5, latest stable i2c and lm_sensors, Gigabyte GA-7N400-L motherboard).

Hi Folks,
I have a couple of question that I was unable to answer after reading this and several other posts.
I have an nforce2 motherboard (Soltek FRN2-L) with 1GB of OCZ-3200 performance series RAM.
I've installed lm_sensors following the directions on the installation thread and everything went ok, the only problem it that lm_sensors does not detect my voltage nor it does not scan the memory slots.

The output of 'sensors' is the following:
Code:
lm90-i2c-0-4c
Adapter: SMBus nForce2 adapter at 5000
Algorithm: Non-I2C SMBus adapter
M/B Temp:    +37°C  (low =   +5°C, high =  +70°C)         
CPU Temp:  +39.8°C  (low =  +5.0°C, high = +70.0°C)         
tcrit1:      +85°C
tcrit2:      +85°C
hyst:        +10°C

pcf8591-i2c-0-4e
Adapter: SMBus nForce2 adapter at 5000

Chan. 0:  30
Chan. 1:  30
Chan. 2:  30
Chan. 3:  30
Output:   0 (enabled)

eeprom-i2c-0-50
Adapter: SMBus nForce2 adapter at 5000
Algorithm: Non-I2C SMBus adapter
Unknown EEPROM type (10)

eeprom-i2c-0-51
Adapter: SMBus nForce2 adapter at 5000
Algorithm: Non-I2C SMBus adapter
Unknown EEPROM type (10)

eeprom-i2c-0-52
Adapter: SMBus nForce2 adapter at 5000
Algorithm: Non-I2C SMBus adapter
Unknown EEPROM type (10)


Also, 'sensors-detect' instructed me to load the following modules:
Code:
MODULE_0=i2c-nforce2
MODULE_1=i2c-isa
MODULE_2=lm90
MODULE_3=pcf8591
MODULE_4=eeprom
MODULE_5=w83781d


After looking the documentation for each of the sensors, I have no idea why the voltage sensors are not being detected. One thing that caught my attention is the fact that lm90 sensor only reports two temperatures. If that is the case 'w83791d' is supposed to handle the rest of the readings. However when looking at the /proc/sys//dev/sensors/ directory, I only have entries for the lm90, 3 eeprom's (3 memory slots), but no 'w83791d'. This one is not being recognized.

This is the directory listing:
Code:
valentina sensors # pwd
/proc/sys/dev/sensors
valentina sensors # ls
chips  eeprom-i2c-0-50  eeprom-i2c-0-51  eeprom-i2c-0-52  lm90-i2c-0-4c  pcf8591-i2c-0-4e
valentina sensors # cd lm90-i2c-0-4c/
valentina lm90-i2c-0-4c # ls
alarms  hyst  tcrit1  tcrit2  temp1  temp2


My questions are:
Does anybody know why the memory probes are unsuccesful?
Why my voltage sensors are not being detected?
Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

If anybody wants to see the contentes of /proc/bus/*, here it is:
Code:

If you need me to post any more info let me know, I'll post it.
Thanks.

----------------------------------
UPDATE:
Going back to the specs of my MB the chips that are supported are the
'lm90' and the 'w83627hf' not the 'w83781d' as detected by 'sensors-detect'.
It is on the FAQ for the lm_sensors package:

Quote:
4.17.5 Bad readings from a w8378[12]d!

Do you own an ASUS motherboard? Perhaps your chip is being misidentified. Look on the motherboard (or at http://mbm.livewiredev.com) for a 'Winbond' or Asus chip. Often the real device is an Asus as99127f. If so, the driver can be forced to recognize the as99127f with force_as99127f=BUS,0x2d where BUS is your i2c bus number. Cat /proc/bus/i2c to see a list of bus numbers. Read the w83781d module documentation (doc/chips/w83781d) for more details.


All I had to do is remove the unneeded module and insert the appropiate one. Now 'sensors' shows:
Code:

same as before and ...

However, my memory is still not recognized. ANy ideas?

l440gx+ with p3 750mhz
mylex dac960 raid

it refuses to work

I did what I was supposed to:

Code:
kernel/chips/max6650.c:115: error: initializer element is not constant
kernel/chips/max6650.c:115: error: (near initialization for `max6650_driver.id')
make: *** [kernel/chips/max6650.o] Error 1
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....

!!! ERROR: sys-apps/lm-sensors-2.8.1 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 84, Exitcode 2
!!! lm_sensors requires the source of a compatible kernel version in /usr/src/linux or specified in $LINUX and >=i2c-2.8.1 support built as modules.


this is what i have in my kernel:

Code:

<*> I2C support
[*] I2C mainboard interfaces
<*>   Intel 82801AA, AB, BA, DB
<*>   Intel 82371AB PIIX4(E), 443MX, ServerWorks OSB4/CSB5, SMSC Vict
<*>   Pseudo ISA adapter (for some hardware sensors)
<M> I2C device interface
<M> I2C /proc interface (required for hardware sensors)


yea i figured i had an intel board so i should have that in it.... thanks

Well I actually got something to work. The modules get loaded and dmesg shows it detecting some stuff. but i can't get bmcsensors, eeprom, ds1621 to work, well the modules don't load.. So i had somehow gotten lm-sensors to compile before, so running the old sensors-detect generates the file with those, but I tried recompiling and it gives me the same error as in my post above.. Any help any one?

Thanks

Hey Sp4rky,

I didn't see you mention what motherboard you are using, but the chipset seems to be the same as my A7M266-D. Like yours, using the stock /etc/sensors.conf, the -12v and -5v readings were hosed.

A while back, I found this file by googling and have tweaked a bit to suit my setup. It works much better now:
Code:

as99127f-i2c-0-2d
Adapter: SMBus AMD756 adapter at e4e0
VCore1:    +1.78 V  (min =  +1.60 V, max =  +1.86 V)             
VCore2:    +1.73 V  (min =  +1.60 V, max =  +1.86 V)             
+3.3V:     +3.39 V  (min =  +3.14 V, max =  +3.46 V)             
+5V:       +5.05 V  (min =  +4.73 V, max =  +5.24 V)             
+12V:     +12.34 V  (min = +11.37 V, max = +12.59 V)             
CPU0 Fan: 3629 RPM  (min = 1997 RPM, div = 4)                     
CPU1 Fan: 3479 RPM  (min = 1997 RPM, div = 4)                     
PSU Fan:  2934 RPM  (min = 1500 RPM, div = 4)                     
M/B Temp:    +37°C  (high =   +45°C, hyst =   +42°C)         
CPU0 Temp: +52.0°C  (high =   +60°C, hyst =   +57°C)         
CPU1 Temp: +54.0°C  (high =   +60°C, hyst =   +57°C)         
VID:      +1.750 V


Though 'sensors' reports correctly, as above, a few kernel versions back it became necessary to set the temperature divisor to 1/10th of its normal value in my gkrellm2 configuration. I'm pretty sure it is kernel related and not lm-sensors. My current version is lm-sensors-2.8.4.

hi

gigabyte ga7vt600-l , VIA KT600, gentoo-sources 2.4.22 >> and gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.2

i compiled my kernel just like you said adding the ic2 supports as modules

then i emerged i2c lm-sensors gkrellm

then i did a sensors-detect and this is what i got:

Code:
root # sensors-detect
No i2c device files found. Use prog/mkdev/mkdev.sh to create them.


i then tried prog/mkdev/mkdev.sh but really don't know where that is or if that is what i need to do... any help would be nice :)
