Which distro has these packaged in?


I need a linux distrtibution that comes with lm-sensors and i2c pre-installed after you install the distro itself.

I don't know how to find a linux distribution with those packages already installed. But I need one with lm_sensors-2.10.3.tar.gz and i2c-2.10.2.tar.gz.

Evidentially: Linux 2.6 users do not need to get this i2c package, it's already part of the kernel tree so I just need lm-sensors.

Thank you in advance. I'd prefer to use ubuntu, fedora so please let me know.

virtually all distros contain lm_sensors, it's a very basic package.

Is there a low-end linux distribution that contains these packages? I would prefer someone to refer something to me. Our box has about a 1 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and about 6 GB of harddrive space.

Thank you in advance.

Debian Etch XFCE install should run well on that hardware..

install the base system then

aptitude update
aptitude install lm-sensors


edit /etc/sensors.conf to configure

you can grab the CD 1 install image here: http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/...-xfce-CD-1.iso

xubuntu would be another option.. pretty much any distro should have lm-sensors now..

As noted, whatever you end up doing, you're probably going to want to stick to a distro with the XFCE desktop

Xubuntu 7.04 should have it available via Synaptic.

Thank you, I think I've chosen xubuntu as my choice.
