lm sensors , i2c & 2.6.5 kernel


I used 2.6.3-4mdk kernel with gkrellm showing temps allright

I've downloaded and succesfully compiled 2.6.5 kernel but i can't get any reading in gkrellm about my temps.I've read that i have 2 download and install lm sensors and i2c in their latest version. I did but when i try to compile them (make etc) i get an amazing amount of errors!!!
Has anyone had problems like that?What should i do?

PS1 When i 'sensors-detect' i get that no sensors r detected after the questions !

PS2 My cpu is overcloacked (from 2.4 ghz to 3.1 ghz) so temp reading is rather crucial 2 me!

You need the lastest version of lm_sensors http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/download.html.
Just lm_sensors on i2c-it is already in the kernel.
I get cvs for the most up todate.
cd /usr/src then follow the direction for getting the latest lm_sensors
make user_tools
make user_install

Sorry http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/download.html

Just lm_sensors not i2c-it is already in the kernel.
I get cvs for the most up todate.

cd /usr/src
cvs -d :pserver:anon@cvs.lm-sensors.nu:/home/cvs login
Log in using the password "anonymous".
cvs -d :pserver:anon@cvs.lm-sensors.nu:/home/cvs checkout lm_sensors2
cd /usr/src/lm_sensors2
make user_tools
make user_install

LM_SENSORS QUICK INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
------------------------------------------

NOTE: PLEASE SKIM THE INSTALL DOCUMENT, OR BETTER YET READ IT CAREFULLY!
The instructions in this document will generally work if you have a standard
system, but not always!!

* Verify you are running a 2.4 kernel, 2.4.9 or later.
If you are running a 2.5/2.6 kernel, the ONLY thing you need to
do is 'make user' and 'make user_install'.
Do NOT follow the rest
of these instructions.
no make

sorry you are right. About the above question try to do the following.
First backup you .config file in /usr/src/liinux, ie cp .config ../conf26
then do a make mrproper. With that error you are getting it seem that you are not getting a clean compile?
Then copy your conf26 back into /usr/src/linux and then do make menuconfig and verify that you have everything you selected. I am not sure if you need i2c-isa selected? The do make to recompile your kernel.
If it any help I use the following on my debian system.

For building the 2.6 kernel

Take and read the following:

http://www.linux.org.uk/~davej/docs/...loween-2.6.txt
http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/799

You need to get the module-init-tools.

cp linux-2.6.2.tar.gz /usr/src
tar jfx linux-2.6.2.tar.gz
ln -sf linux-2.6.2 linux
cd linux

Use lspci -v to help select your hardware. This will be helpful for configuring the 2.6 kernel.

make mrproper
make menuconfig
make
make modules_install
make install

Then modify you lilo.conf or grub.txt

make install installs vmlinuz into the boot directory along with System.map
It creates a symbolic link to you old vmlinuz -> vmlinuz.old and System.old

All you need to do is add entry for the old vmlinuz. I use lilo.conf

This is mine....

image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=Linux2.6
read-only

** This would be you redhat config. **
image=/boot/vmlinuz.old
vga=791
append="hdc=scsi hdd=scsi apm=power-off nomce"
label=Linux2.4
read-only

If you are using lilo, issue lilo -v or modify you menu.lst for grub.

Hope this helps. The more people use 2.6 the better.

I did make user and make user_install and here's what i get

[root@localhost /]# sensors-detect

This program will help you determine which I2C/SMBus modules you need to
load to use lm_sensors most effectively. You need to have i2c and
lm_sensors installed before running this program.
Also, you need to be `root', or at least have access to the /dev/i2c/*
files, for most things.
If you have patched your kernel and have some drivers built in, you can
safely answer NO if asked to load some modules. In this case, things may
seem a bit confusing, but they will still work.

It is generally safe and recommended to accept the default answers to all
questions, unless you know what you're doing.

We can start with probing for (PCI) I2C or SMBus adapters.
You do not need any special privileges for this.
Do you want to probe now? (YES/no):
Probing for PCI bus adapters...
Use driver `i2c-i801' for device 00:1f.3: Intel 82801DB ICH4
Probe succesfully concluded.

We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
Load `i2c-i801' (say NO if built into your kernel)? (YES/no):
Module loaded succesfully.
If you have undetectable or unsupported adapters, you can have them
scanned by manually loading the modules before running this script.

To continue, we need module `i2c-dev' to be loaded.
If it is built-in into your kernel, you can safely skip this.
i2c-dev is not loaded. Do you want to load it now? (YES/no):
Module loaded succesfully.

We are now going to do the adapter probings. Some adapters may hang halfway
through; we can't really help that. Also, some chips will be double detected;
we choose the one with the highest confidence value in that case.
If you found that the adapter hung after probing a certain address, you can
specify that address to remain unprobed. That often
includes address 0x69 (clock chip).

Next adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at e800 (Algorithm unavailable)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively):
Client found at address 0x08
Client at address 0x2d can not be probed - unload all client drivers first!
Client found at address 0x44
Client at address 0x48 can not be probed - unload all client drivers first!
Client at address 0x49 can not be probed - unload all client drivers first!
Client at address 0x50 can not be probed - unload all client drivers first!
Client at address 0x51 can not be probed - unload all client drivers first!

Next adapter: bt878 #0 [sw] (Algorithm unavailable)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively):
Client at address 0x50 can not be probed - unload all client drivers first!
Client at address 0x61 can not be probed - unload all client drivers first!

Some chips are also accessible through the ISA bus. ISA probes are
typically a bit more dangerous, as we have to write to I/O ports to do
this. This is usually safe though.

Do you want to scan the ISA bus? (YES/no):
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78'
Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78-J'

Some Super I/O chips may also contain sensors. Super I/O probes are
typically a bit more dangerous, as we have to write to I/O ports to do
this. This is usually safe though.

Sorry, no chips were detected.
Either your sensors are not supported, or they are
connected to an I2C bus adapter that we do not support.
See doc/FAQ, doc/lm_sensors-FAQ.html, or
http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/cvs/...nsors-FAQ.html
(FAQ #4.24.3) for further information.
If you find out what chips are on your board, see
http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/newdrivers.html for driver status.


Why?
