Ah yes, you have tilde x86, it should be minus x86. In cases like this you can always look in the ebuild to see what keyword is used and copy that to be sure to get it correct.


Cool, I didn't even know there was a minus x86 keyword. :oops:

Thank you! :mrgreen:

Yeah, it is normally used when a package is broken, but in this case it is more like a hack to keep 2.4 users from installing it, I think.

Is there any way to get lm_sensors working without using modules? I tried emerging i2c with i2c support enabled as well as disabled in the kernel and I get:

* I2C requires the source of a compatible kernel
* version installed in /usr/src/linux
* (or the environmental variable $LINUX)
* and kernel I2C *disabled* or *enabled as a module*

!!! ERROR: sys-apps/i2c-2.8.1 failed.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 95, Exitcode 0
!!! Error: compilation failed!

every time I emerge lm-sensors.

/usr/src/linux is linked to linux-2.4.25-gentoo-r5/

Thanks,

/MLS

Gkrellm2 reports that it cannot find my sensors. I checked the manual and gkrellm checks for /proc/sys/dev/sensors and I do not have any such entry in /proc.

I use kernel 2.6.7-mm6 with lm-sensors 2.8.7 and the sensor program works and gives output. sensors -s also works after I commented out three lines in /etc/sensors.conf, that sensors -s was complaining about. These lines were all of the type "set *_hyst *", so I do not think that this has anything to do with my problem.

I have seen that others have had similar problems. Where is my /proc entry? Does this have anything to do with the 2.6 kernels?

Grateful for help.

Solved it myself.
It seems that gkrellm v2.2.2 which can be emerged by using ~x86 understands that there are no I2C /proc entries in 2.6 and gets the information from some other place.

i'm trying to get this working on a Dell Inspiron 5150 notebook. but when i run sensors-detect, it tells me that it can't find any supported chips. any suggestions?

thanks in advance,
dm

I have not configured my kernel with IC2 support, is it someway I can compile it and make the modules / get everything to work without restarting the computer?

Rereading, what I missed was compiling it in as modules. I went back and modularized the items I posted above, then followed the rest of the tutorial. Not having an ISA bus on this board (Iwill DPL-533), I wasn't surprised that all of the tests on the ISA bus failed. It detected an i2c-i801 and an eeprom module, which I duly modprobed. I also had to add the /etc/sysconfig directory so that I could write out the lm_sensors file....

I have the two modules above inserted and running. sensors reports memory but nothing else:

Code:

kenobi linux # sensors
eeprom-i2c-0-50
Adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 1100
Algorithm: Non-I2C SMBus adapter
Memory type:            DDR SDRAM DIMM SPD
SDRAM Size (MB):        512

eeprom-i2c-0-54
Adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 1100
Algorithm: Non-I2C SMBus adapter
Memory type:            DDR SDRAM DIMM SPD
SDRAM Size (MB):        512



I know the board has temperature monitoring because I can see it in the bios, and because the page I linked to says it does :) but apparently that functionality got missed. Is this an lm_sensors limitation?


Same problem here :/

I updated lm-sensors and after that sensors stopped working. I ran sensors-detect again and it produced a different configfile. Instead of w83781d it now wants asb100. I modprobed it and woops the sensors work again, but now they display wrong numbers. is it because I need to change another entry in sensors.conf? why did the module changed at all? I don't get it.

Cheers

I recently updated to the latest version and lm-sensors has stopped working, gkrellm still reports the right values but sensors itself refuses to start:

Code:
sensors: error while loading shared libraries: sensors: undefined symbol: libsensors_version


I've got a Giga-byte K7 Triton mobo, VIA chipset and the latest gentoo-dev-sources. If it helps, here are the modules that sensors-detect comes up with:

Code:
i2c-viapro
i2c-isa
eeprom
it87


Any ideas?

Which if the "I2C Hardware Bus support" options am I suppose to use for the intel 845 shipset? I've seen someone else was asking about the 875.
Options are...
< > ALI 1535
< > ALI 15x3
< > AMD 756/766
< > AMD 8111
< > Intel 801
< > Intel 810/815
< > ISA Bus support
< > Nvidia Nforce2
< > Parallel port adapter (light)
< > Intel PIIX4
< > S3/VIA (Pro)Savage
< > S3 Savage 4
< > NatSemi SCx200 ACCESS.bus
< > SiS 5595
< > SiS 630/730
< > SiS 96x
< > VIA 82C586B
< > VIA 82C596/82C686/823x
< > Voodoo 3

Thanks
Carl

I have kernel 2.6.8-r3 and i followed up all the instructions correctly (i think). Compiled all necessary modules and enabled them too. did the sensors-detect with no problems at all but when i type sensors i get this...

i got an AN7 from Abit (with the Guru shit).
has someone seen this before? what might be screwing lm_sensors readings?

tks for ur help.

here goes my lsmod

Just moved over to another m/b. lm_sensors and gkrellm2 was giving me all the temps/voltages/fans.

New m/b is nforce2 and trying to get things going but running into a snag.

lsmod shows:

Code:
w83627hf               28200  0
i2c_sensor              3072  1 w83627hf
i2c_core               19152  2 w83627hf,i2c_sensor


went thu the sensors-detect and got everything setup and the modules appear to be loaded. But, when I run 'sensors' it just tells me "No sensors found!"

I re-emerged lm_sensors under the latest kernel. Do I also need to re-emerge gkrellm?

Any ideas why sensors aren't being found?


[EDIT]

Ok...think I've got something going. stay tuned :lol:

I've compiled the modules into the kernel, but that doesn't seem to work. Is it possible to work without the modules?

I've a mother-board: ASUS P4P800 SE and 2.6.22-gentoo-r9
i'd like to know what are the kernel modules that i'll must enable...

PS: when i try to emerge gkrellm i got:

*
* sensors-detect requires CONFIG_I2C_CHARDEV to be enabled for non-2.4.x kernels.
*
*
* lm_sensors-2.10.1 requires CONFIG_I2C to be enabled for non-2.4.x kernels for most sensors.
*


thank you in advance.
