Hi,

I'm getting a hard time trying to get lm_sensors to work on my brand-new IBM Xseries 330 Server.

Here are a couple of useful infos :

Code:

hermes linux # /etc/init.d/lm_sensors start


 * Caching service dependencies ...          [ ok ]
 * Loading lm_sensors modules...
 * Loading i2c-core ...                            [ ok ]
 * Loading i2c-savage4 ...                       [ ok ]
 * Loading smartbatt ...                          [ !! ]
 * Loading max6650 ...                            [ !! ]
 * Loading saa1064 ...                            [ !! ]
 * Loading lm92 ...                                 [ ok ]
 * Loading ds1621 ...                              [ ok ]
 * Loading eeprom ...                              [ ok ]
 * Loading smbus-arp ...                          [ !! ]
 * Loading pca9540 ...                             [ !! ]
 * Initializing sensors ...                           [ ok ]


I ran the sensors-detect tool to create the appropriate config file, and now we can easily find what are those friendly modules that DO NOT want to load... :(

I did my best to compile the modules, at least, those that were accessible in my kernel :

Code:
hermes linux # uname -a
Linux hermes 2.6.12-gentoo-r9 #7 SMP Tue Aug 30 01:22:27 UTC 2005 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) III CPU family      1400MHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux


Now what do I have in this kernel?

Code:

hermes linux # grep -i i2c /usr/src/linux/.config
# I2C support
CONFIG_I2C=m
CONFIG_I2C_CHARDEV=m
# I2C Algorithms
CONFIG_I2C_ALGOBIT=m

CONFIG_I2C_ALGOPCA=m

CONFIG_I2C_DEBUG_CORE=y
CONFIG_I2C_DEBUG_ALGO=y
CONFIG_I2C_DEBUG_BUS=y
CONFIG_I2C_DEBUG_CHIP=y


Code:

hermes linux # grep -i sensors /usr/src/linux/.config

# CONFIG_SENSORS_ADM1021 is not set
# CONFIG_SENSORS_ADM1025 is not set

# CONFIG_SENSORS_PC87360 is not set
# CONFIG_SENSORS_SMSC47B397 is not set
# CONFIG_SENSORS_SIS5595 is not set
# CONFIG_SENSORS_SMSC47M1 is not set
CONFIG_SENSORS_VIA686A=m
# CONFIG_SENSORS_W83781D is not set
# CONFIG_SENSORS_W83L785TS is not set

CONFIG_SENSORS_EEPROM=m
# CONFIG_SENSORS_PCF8574 is not set
# CONFIG_SENSORS_PCF8591 is not set
# CONFIG_SENSORS_RTC8564 is not set



The sensors-detect tool "told" me that I needed those modules :
Code:

i2c-core (ok)
i2c-savage4 (ok)
smartbatt (!!)
max6650 (!!)
saa1064 (!!)
lm92 (ok)
ds1621 (ok)
eeprom (ok)
smbus-arp (!!)
pca9540 (!!)


So my question is...

How am I going to find / install those modules I need, in order to get my sensors working? What can I do if I CANNOT find them in my kernel?

Huh!

Can someone tell me why my CODE calls don't work?


test:

Code:
Do I suck with HTML?   lol

You didn't close the first (code) tag:

Fine,

Now that my HTML is [almost] perfect, ;)

Can someone tell me where I can find those modules I need, If I can't find'em in the kernel?

Have you tried this?

Just for the record, I only use three sensors, all of them compiled-in:
Code:
root@envy:: grep -i sensors /usr/src/linux/.config|grep -i y
CONFIG_SENSORS_EEPROM=y
CONFIG_SENSORS_ASB100=y
CONFIG_SENSORS_W83781D=y


I'm sorry I can't be helpful. :(

I've the same problem... I think that is not possible to use hardware sensors on this machine.
Maybe possible if you use red hat linux relase.
Ibm doesn't release this kind of driver for generic *nix :cry:
