Ok, my lm_sensors just quit working (error message inside)


Ok, I know I have i2c support in my kernel, and specific drivers for my chipset built in, and this is what I get all of the sudden when I booted up my laptop:
Quote:
Starting up sensors: starting module __i2c-isa__
starting module: __via686a__
etc/init.d/lm_sensors: line 61: /usr/local/bin/sensors: No such file or directory
Now from the output of dmesg this is all I get now:

Quote:
[ACPI Debug] String: --------- VIA SOFTWARE SMI PMIO 2Fh ------------
[ACPI Debug] String: --------- VIA SOFTWARE SMI PMIO 2Fh ------------
[ACPI Debug] String: ---------------------------- AC _PSR
[ACPI Debug] String: ---------------------------- AC on line
[ACPI Debug] String: --------- VIA SOFTWARE SMI PMIO 2Fh ------------
[ACPI Debug] String: --------- VIA SOFTWARE SMI PMIO 2Fh ------------
udf: unregistering filesystem
The first 6 lines repeat over and over. Any ideas, because Im lost

Well, er, the error message suggests that you don't have the program /usr/local/bin/sensors. Do you? What happens when you give on the command line /usr/local/bin/sensors ? You should see sensor readings. If not, you'll have to get this program if it's not there, or fix it if it is there but not working. There should also be a file /etc/sensors.conf. The sensors program and an example sensors.conf file are in the lm-sensors distribution.

I know it says I dont have it, I know that much. I dont know why I dont have it, and thats what I cant figure out. It was working before, and now it decides it doesnt want to work after my last compile. Is it better to build support into the kernel for your chipset, or load it as a module?

It might be better to compile separate modules, unless you're sure exactly which ones you need. But what do I know? I get sensor readings, but they're not meaningful. I also get error messages that smbus can't be read and sysfs/procfs can't be written to (but both /sys and /proc are there).

I know what chipsets that I have, and I like to keep an eye on my processor temp, since I like to OC. Since they arent working though, Ive bumped the processor back down to its stock speed.
