installing lm-sensors & c. for the Pentium 4 machines


currently using Ricky's from

lm-sensors package

using /home/wikipedia/src/lm_sensors-2.8.6-1.i386.ricky-beam.rpm

/sys filesystem

from Ricky:

mkdir /sys
-                       /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
to fstab
(- or sysfs, it doesn't really matter)
mount /sys

/etc/modules.conf modification

add this: (suggested by sensors-detect script)

# Support for i2c and lm_sensors
alias char-major-89    i2c-dev

startup script

make /etc/rc.d/init.d/lm_sensors

#! /bin/bash

# script generated by sensors-detect
# slight modification by JJ 2004-06-03

# I2C adapter drivers
modprobe i2c-i801
modprobe i2c-isa
# I2C chip drivers
modprobe eeprom
modprobe w83627hf
sleep 2 # optional
/usr/bin/sensors -s # recommended

then chmod 755 it (necessary?), then:

ln -s /etc/rc.d/init.d/lm_sensors /etc/rc3.d/S65lm_sensors
