lm_sensors


Does it come with Suse 19.2? Is there a better package to monitor CPU temp that I can get? Thanks for you help.

linux-wwtz:~ # sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. 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.
Do you want to probe now? (YES/no): y
Probing for PCI bus adapters...
Use driver `i2c-i801' for device 0000:00:1f.3: Intel 82801EB ICH5

We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
Module `i2c-i801' already loaded.
If you have undetectable or unsupported adapters, you can have them
scanned by manually loading the modules before running this script.

We are now going to do the I2C/SMBus adapter probings. Some chips may
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.

Next adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 0400
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): y
Client found at address 0x08
Client found at address 0x44
Probing for `Maxim MAX6633/MAX6634/MAX6635'... No
Client found at address 0x50
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'... No
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1034'... No
Probing for `SPD EEPROM'... Success!
(confidence 8, driver `eeprom')
Probing for `EDID EEPROM'... No
Probing for `Maxim MAX6900'... No
Client found at address 0x52
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'... No
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1034'... No
Probing for `SPD EEPROM'... Success!
(confidence 8, driver `eeprom')
Client found at address 0x69

Some chips are also accessible through the ISA I/O ports. We have to
write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe though.
Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any ISA slots!
Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): y
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290... No
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78-J' at 0x290... No
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290... No
Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290... No
Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290... No
Probing for `Winbond W83627HF' at 0x290... No
Probing for `Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595'... No
Probing for `VIA VT82C686 Integrated Sensors'... No
Probing for `VIA VT8231 Integrated Sensors'... No
Probing for `AMD K8 thermal sensors'... No
Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0... No
Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8... No

Some Super I/O chips may also contain sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): y
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
Trying family `ITE'... No
Trying family `National Semiconductor'... No
Trying family `SMSC'... No
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Fintek'... Yes
Found `Winbond W83627THF Super IO Sensors' Success!
(address 0x290, driver `w83627hf')
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
Trying family `ITE'... No
Trying family `National Semiconductor'... No
Trying family `SMSC'... No
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Fintek'... No

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue:

Driver `eeprom' (should be inserted):
Detects correctly:
* Bus `SMBus I801 adapter at 0400'
Busdriver `i2c-i801', I2C address 0x50
Chip `SPD EEPROM' (confidence: 8)
* Bus `SMBus I801 adapter at 0400'
Busdriver `i2c-i801', I2C address 0x52
Chip `SPD EEPROM' (confidence: 8)

EEPROMs are *NOT* sensors! They are data storage chips commonly
found on memory modules (SPD), in monitors (EDID), or in some
laptops, for example.

Driver `w83627hf' (should be inserted):
Detects correctly:
* ISA bus address 0x0290 (Busdriver `i2c-isa')
Chip `Winbond W83627THF Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

I will now generate the commands needed to load the required modules.
Just press ENTER to continue:

To make the sensors modules behave correctly, add these lines to
/etc/modprobe.conf:

#----cut here----
# I2C module options
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
#----cut here----

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

#----cut here----
# I2C adapter drivers
modprobe i2c-i801
# Chip drivers
modprobe eeprom
modprobe w83627hf
# sleep 2 # optional
/usr/bin/sensors -s # recommended
#----cut here----

If you have some drivers built into your kernel, the list above will
contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones! You really
should try these commands right now to make sure everything is
working properly. Monitoring programs won't work until the needed
modules are loaded.

Do you want to overwrite /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no): y
linux-wwtz:~ #

I got all this, but Is not what I want. I want CPU temp. And after running all this I still get:

linux-wwtz:~ # sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.
linux-wwtz:~ #

Is there a good package for CPU temps.?

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...reenshot-4.png

This is what I found in /etc/modprob.d

And this in /etc/rc.d:

http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t...reenshot-5.png

And I don't know what to do with either one.

So have you checked to make sure that the module(s) are loaded? It won't work without them being loaded use the lsmod command to see and you may need to reboot to make sure everything get initialized properly. If this does not work then post the lsmod output and tell us which motherboard make/model you have.

Hmmm do not see the w83627hf listed but the i2c_dev is so that seems strange it did not load it. I see as well you have the thermal/fan modules loaded is this a laptop? You should be able to use cat /proc/acpi/thermal then hit the TAB key to see what is available in there one of the values in the subdirectories should be telling you the CPU temperature, your fan speeds ... things like that.

It's a desktop. I have /proc/acpi/thermal_zone, but thermal_zone is empty???

macho@linux-wwtz:~> acpi -V
No support for device type: thermal
macho@linux-wwtz:~> acpi -tf
No support for device type: thermal
macho@linux-wwtz:~>

Anyway, I found in another forum KSensors and GKrellm. You can download both with Yast. They are in Guru. I have both of them working. They are pretty fancy, especially GKrellm. Thanks a lot anyway.
