Thinkpad R500 thermal sensors names (lm-sensors)


Hi,

Has anyone properly configured thermal sensors labels (names) in sensors.conf file for Thinkpad R500 laptop. ThinkWiki has no entry for R500. My "sensors" output:

------------------------------------------
acpitz-virtual-0
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +50.0C (crit = +127.0C)
temp2: +46.0C (crit = +100.0C)

thinkpad-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
fan1: 2976 RPM
temp1: +50.0C
temp2: N/A
temp3: N/A
temp4: +43.0C
temp5: +50.0C
temp6: N/A
temp7: +32.0C
temp8: N/A
temp9: +33.0C
temp10: +43.0C
temp11: +45.0C
temp12: N/A
temp13: N/A
temp14: N/A
temp15: N/A
temp16: N/A
------------------------------------------

How to identify which temperature refers to what hardware?

Hi:

I have never configured thermal sensors labels in the sensors.conf file; sorry-

I used the termanal (man sensors to see what the man pages had to say a about sensors.

Code:
NAME
       sensors - print sensors information

SYNOPSIS
       sensors [ options ] [ chips ]
       sensors -s [ chips ]
       sensors --bus-list

DESCRIPTION
       sensors is used to show the current readings of all sensor chips.
       sensors  -s is used to set all limits as specified in the configuration
       file.
       sensors --bus-list is used to generate bus statements suitable for  the
       configuration file.
I (think) that this description "thinkpad-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter"
Is the actual temperature associated with the adapter that gives your laptop power.
