    What is the thermal subsystem under Mandriva?


    I have a laptop that shows a thermal subsystem as unknown..

    Is a thermal subsystem under Mandriva really important??

    The sensors package is normally used to get thermal information.
    In some distros known as lm_sensors and lm-sensors.
    then
    # sensors-detect
    Shutting down sensors: done
    # sensors-detect revision 5861 (2010-09-21 17:21:05 +0200)
    # System: System manufacturer System Product Name
    # Board: ASUSTeK Computer INC. Crosshair III Formula

    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... No
    AMD Family 10h thermal sensors... Success!
    (driver `k10temp')
    AMD Family 11h thermal sensors... No
    Intel digital 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'... No
    Trying family `ITE'... Yes
    Found `ITE IT8720F Super IO Sensors' Success!
    (address 0x290, driver `it87')
    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.
    Probing for `SPD EEPROM'... No
    Probing for `EDID EEPROM'... Yes
    (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)

    Next adapter: NVIDIA i2c adapter (i2c-1)
    Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively):

    Next adapter: NVIDIA i2c adapter (i2c-2)
    Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively):

    Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
    Just press ENTER to continue:

    Driver `it87':
    * ISA bus, address 0x290
    Chip `ITE IT8720F Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

    Driver `k10temp' (autoloaded):
    * Chip `AMD Family 10h thermal sensors' (confidence: 9)

    Do you want to overwrite /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no):
    insserv: warning: script 'K01mount_av' missing LSB tags and overrides
    insserv: warning: script 'remotetrx' missing LSB tags and overrides
    insserv: Default-Start undefined, assuming default start runlevel(s) for script `remotetrx'
    insserv: warning: script 'mount_av' missing LSB tags and overrides
    insserv: FATAL: service syslog is missed in the runlevels 4 to use service vboxdrv
    insserv: exiting now!
    slipstream:/usr/src # ssensors
    If 'ssensors' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    cnf ssensors
    slipstream:/usr/src # sensors
