Install lm sensors but read the site documentation before you try cuz you need to install i2c too.

there is no need for lm_sensors with RH. maybe same with Slack!!!! install gkrellm with plugins and run sensors-detect. it will give you some lines you have to add into rc.sysconfig and modules.conf. i2c modules are built in allready.

This is what I did on my Gentoo 1.4 rc 2 to use lm_sensors in gkrellm.

1) recompile the kernel with i2c support (Character devices -> i2c support -> .. build all that stuff as modules). For RH 8.0 you don't need to recompile the kernel since i2c support is already build as module. No idea for Slackware.

2) make a directory called 'sysconfig' in /etc -> 'mkdir /etc/sysconfig'. This directory is already there for RH.

3) run 'sensors-detect' and press enter to every questions.

4) load the modules : '/etc/init.d/lm_sensors start'. On RH that must be 'service lm_sensors start' .. or is that for MDK ?

5) Start it at boot time : 'rc-update add lm_sensors default'. I think that is put in /etc/rc3.d and /etc/rc5.d by default on RH.. not sure.

6) OPen gkrellm and configure the plugin now. Or in a console type 'sensors'

Hi

That was installed by default then. Because on MDK 9 and Gentoo 1.4rc2 we have to install it first, then detect the sensors and finally configure gkrellm.

Regards,

Ok, I'm a super noob to linux (see even my name says so). I've seen this post about running sensors-detect. I'm running Mandrake 10.0 community, and I have no clue what sensors-detect is or how I would 'run' it. Can anyone help me? I am trying to get gkrellm to work on my system. Same problem as the guys above, nothing comes up for the sensors. Thanks for any help.
