[ubuntu] Unknown sensor chip SMSC ID 0x4501

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have a laptop (HP 5310m) released around 2010 and there appears to be no support for the fan/temp sensor chipset. When I run sensors-detect it comes up with an unknown chip with ID 0x4501. Does anyone know what this chip is? If so, is there a module driver being written for it? Any help appreciated, Output of sensors-detect: Some Super I/O chips contain embedded 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 `National Semiconductor'... (Hardware)
