root/lm-sensors/branches/lm-sensors-3.0.0/CHANGES @ 5603

Revision 5603, 10.2 KB (checked in by khali, 5 years ago)

New default configuration file. This is sensors.conf.eg with only
mainboard-neutral statements. This means in particular:
* Only internally-scaled voltages are configured.
* Only internal temperature sensors are labelled.
* No fan labels.
We will soon switch to this configuration file as the default,
for both performance and correctness.

  • Property svn:eol-style set to native
  • Property svn:keywords set to Author Date Id Revision
