Description

I am running lm_sensors/i2c (both 2.9.0 and 2.9.1-CVS-050309 on linux-2.4.26).

When I run sensors, it shows me two ALARMs, even when the values for

negative voltage are perfectly inside the tolerance interval.

I presume, there is something wrong with the settings in

/proc/sys/dev/sensors/it87-isa-0290/alarms.

P.S. Thank you for this program.

--- Swap inN_min and inN_max in /etc/sensors.conf for -5V and -12V. In some cases,

for negative voltages, the min limit is the one nearest from 0, not most

negative value. (Technically, it depends whether inverting amplifier or

reference voltage is used.)
