Exclamation lm sensors, no sensors found


I have installed lm_sensors and Co, and on boot up i get this:
sensord: Error -4 loading sensors configuration file: /etc/sensors.conf
sensors: sensord startup failed

I have had a look and the file /etc/sensors.conf exists (but i wouldnt have a clue what the contents of the file is all about)

I did: modprobe i2c-proc
and
sensors -s

from the console as su and got: No sensors found after doing sensors -s

Something isn't quite right here, i know i have sensors! , i have used them in windoze before.

My motherboard is a Soltek - SL-75DRV4

Any ideas anyone?

cheers

What happened when you ran "sensors-detect"?

It told me a heap of things!

To make sensor modules behave correctly add these lines to either:
/etc/modules.conf
or
/etc/conf.modules

#i2c module options
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev

to load everything that is needed add this to some /etc/rc* file

#i2c adapter drivers
modprobe i2c-viapro
# i2c chip drivers
modprobe lm75
modprobe eeprom

Copy prog/init/lm_sensors.init to /etc/rc.d/init.d/lm_sensors for initialization at boot time.


It seems to have detected everything correctly.

what rc* file is it specifically talking about?

also what does it mean by: Copy prog/init/lm_sensors.init ?
ie: where is this init directory? and whats the prog bit?

if i do everything it tells me here, will it sort out my problem?
or am i better off recompiling my kernel?

Just follow the instructions and report any specific errors (if any).
