http://www.linuxforums.org – Hello I'm running CentOS 5.4 on an Atom 230-based MSI MS-7418 motherboard. I'd like to monitor this host' CPU temperature as well as the HD's temperature, but can't get lm_sensors to work: Code: # uname -a Linux msi.workgroup 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Dec 15 21:04:57 EST 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux # cat /etc/issue CentOS release 5.4 (Final) Kernel \r on an \m # rpm -qa | grep sensor lm_sensors-2.10.8-2.el5.elrepo # sensors_detect [...] Driver `to-be-written' (should be inserted):   Detects correctly:   * Bus `SMBus I801 adapter at 0400'     Busdriver `i2c-i801', I2C address 0x2e     Chip `Analog Devices ADT7467 or ADT7468' (confidence: 7)     Do you want to overwrite /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no): Starting lm_sensors: No sensors found! Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need. Try sensors-detect to find out which these are. [FAILED]    # cat /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors MODULE_0=i2c-i801 # lsmod | grep i2c i2c_dev                12613  0 i2c_ec                  9025  1 sbs i2c_i801              11725  0 i2c_core              23745  3 i2c_dev,i2c_ec,i2c_i801 Loading the modules manually or rebooting the host makes no difference. Provided lm_sensors just doesn't handle this motherboard, is there an alternative? Thank you. (HowTos)
