    LM_Sensors


    Not sure exactly which forum this needs to go in as it has a bit of everything in it.
    I am running Gentoo Linux with a 2.6.36-gentoo-r5 Kernel. I have Dual AMD 265 Opteron's on a Tyan S2882-d Mainboard.

    This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
    to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
    and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
    unless you know what you're doing.
    
    Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
    Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no):
    Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595...                       No
    VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors...                          No
    VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors...                            No
    AMD K8 thermal sensors...                                   Success!
        (driver `k8temp')
    AMD Family 10h thermal sensors...                           No
    AMD Family 11h thermal sensors...                           No
    Intel Core family thermal sensor...                         No
    Intel Atom thermal sensor...                                No
    Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor...                         No
    VIA C7 thermal sensor...                                    No
    VIA Nano thermal sensor...                                  No
    
    Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
    standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
    Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no):
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   No
    Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No
    Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'...               Yes
    Found `Winbond W83627HF/F/HG/G Super IO Sensors'            Success!
        (address 0x290, driver `w83627hf')
    Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
    Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   No
    Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No
    Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'...               No
    Trying family `ITE'...                                      No
    
    Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces
    through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things.
    We first try to get the information from SMBIOS. If we don't find it
    there, we have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such
    interfaces. This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI
    interfaces? (YES/no):
    # DMI data unavailable, please consider installing dmidecode 2.7
    # or later for better results.
    Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0...                      No
    Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No
    
    Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
    We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
    safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
    ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (yes/NO):
    
    Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
    monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
    reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
    on some systems.
    Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no):
    Using driver `i2c-amd756' for device 0000:00:07.3: AMD-8111 ACPI
    FATAL: Module i2c_amd756 not found.
    Failed to load module i2c-amd756.
    Using driver `i2c-amd8111' for device 0000:00:07.2: AMD-8111 SMBus 2.0
    FATAL: Module i2c_amd8111 not found.
    Failed to load module i2c-amd8111.
    FATAL: Module i2c_dev not found.
    Failed to load module i2c-dev.
    
    Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
    Just press ENTER to continue:
    
    Driver `w83627hf':
      * ISA bus, address 0x290
        Chip `Winbond W83627HF/F/HG/G Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)
    
    Driver `k8temp':
      * Chip `AMD K8 thermal sensors' (confidence: 9)
    
    Warning: the required module w83627hf is not currently installed
    on your system. If it is built into the kernel then it's OK.
    Otherwise, check ww.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices]Devices ? lm-sensors for
    driver availability.
    
    Warning: the required module k8temp is not currently installed
    on your system. If it is built into the kernel then it's OK.
    Otherwise, check ww.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices]Devices ? lm-sensors for
    driver availability.
    
    No modules to load, skipping modules configuration.
    </code>
    I am unable to load the drivers as modules using insmod
    
    insmod example
    <codeinsmod k8temp
    insmod: can't read 'k8temp': No such file or directory
    I have compiled the drivers as a module in the kernel and as built-in and i always get the same response from sensors-detect

    any help would be greatly appreciated let me know if you need any more information

    Hello and Welcome.
    The best docs for lmsensors is
    lm-sensors
    and
    Lm sensors - Gentoo Linux Wiki
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Most sensors do not have drivers written for them as yet. You are lucky in that a couple of the important ones are recognized and supported! On my system, an Intel S5000XVN dual processor workstation/server motherboard, none of the on-board sensors are supported with RHEL/CentOS 5.x. I am hoping for better luck with 6.0, but CentOS 6 isn't out yet, and I am only testing Scientific Linux 6 (another RHEL clone) in a virtual machine.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
