lm_sensors and weird behavior with ssh


Hi y'all,

I wanted to monitor my cpu temperature on my linux box (Redhat 9) and installed lm_sensors tool package (secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/). I recompiled the kernel (2.4.21) and added the latest i2c (i2c-2.7.0) package. After a couple of re-compilation of lm_sensors package I finally got it working.

I did all this remotely over ssh. When I went back home and tried the sensors command, it didn't work anymore. I re-installed all the modules and so on, but nothing worked. Then I logged in again with ssh and the thing works like charm.

I just don't get it. If I log in at the console, it wont work ("No sensors found"), but if I'm using ssh, it works fine.

Anybody encountered anything like this? I would appreciate any tips you might have.

Thanks,

//matti

i was hoping somebody else knew what it was so you
wouldn't only see my response, and you'd get an actual
answer.

if you want me to i'll delete my response.

No sweat. You're fine. Maybe I'll learn to appreciate your joke... some day.
