Description (last modified by khali) (diff)

I seem to be having trouble getting any fan information to show. I loaded the it87 driver and k8temp but no fans.

This program will help you determine which kernel modules you need
to load to use lm_sensors most effectively. It is generally safe
and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions,
unless you know what you're doing.

We can start with probing for (PCI) I2C or SMBus adapters.
Do you want to probe now? (YES/no): 
Probing for PCI bus adapters...
Use driver `i2c-piix4' for device 0000:00:14.0: ATI Technologies Inc SB600 SMBus

We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
Module `i2c-piix4' already loaded.
If you have undetectable or unsupported adapters, you can have them
scanned by manually loading the modules before running this script.

We are now going to do the I2C/SMBus adapter probings. Some chips may
be double detected; we choose the one with the highest confidence
value in that case.
If you found that the adapter hung after probing a certain address,
you can specify that address to remain unprobed.

Next adapter: SMBus PIIX4 adapter at 0b00 (i2c-0)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): 
Client found at address 0x50
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'...                     No
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1034'...                     No
Probing for `SPD EEPROM'...                                 Yes
    (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)
Probing for `EDID EEPROM'...                                No

Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'...                     No

    (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)
Probing for `EDID EEPROM'...                                No

Next adapter: NVIDIA i2c adapter  (i2c-1)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): 
Client found at address 0x50
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1033'...                     No
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1034'...                     No

Probing for `EDID EEPROM'...                                Yes
    (confidence 8, not a hardware monitoring chip)

Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): 

Next adapter: NVIDIA i2c adapter  (i2c-3)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): 

Some chips are also accessible through the ISA I/O ports. We have to
write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe though.
Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any ISA slots!
Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): 
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290...       No

Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290...                   No
Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290...                   No

Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No

Some Super I/O chips may also contain 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): 
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f

Some CPUs or memory controllers may also contain embedded sensors.

AMD K8 thermal sensors...                                   Success!

Intel Core family thermal sensor...                         No
Intel AMB FB-DIMM thermal sensor...                         No

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue: 

Driver `it87' (should be inserted):
  Detects correctly:
  * ISA bus, address 0x228
    Chip `ITE IT8716F Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)

Driver `k8temp' (should be inserted):
  Detects correctly:
  * Chip `AMD K8 thermal sensors' (confidence: 9)

I will now generate the commands needed to load the required modules.
Just press ENTER to continue: 

To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules:

#----cut here----
# Chip drivers
it87
k8temp
#----cut here----

Do you want to add these lines automatically? (yes/NO)

If you need any more information, let me know.

Apparently the it87 driver doesn't find any supported device, otherwise it would show in the output of "sensors". One possible reason for that would be an I/O resource conflict. Your IT8716F device uses a rather unusual address (0x228 instead of 0x290).

Which kernel version are you running?

Anything in the kernel logs when you load the it87 module? Check with "dmesg" or in /var/log/messages.

Please attach the output of "cat /proc/ioports".

Changed 6 years ago by ticket

From motd:

Linux fenster 2.6.24-16-generic #1 SMP Thu Apr 10 12:47:45 UTC 2008 x86_64 

For some reason the it87 module must not be loading. It is not in /var/log/messages, nor is it found when I lsmod.

In lsmod:

i2c_piix4              11148  0 
i2c_core               28544  3 i2c_dev,nvidia,i2c_piix4

and:

k8temp                  7680  0

Thanks a lot for your help. I hope its not something retarded I did, but it probably is... Again, let me know if you need any other info.

Just try loading the it87 driver manually with:

modprobe it87

Note that running sensors-detect does NOT load the drivers for you. The k8temp driver happens to auto-load because it's a PCI driver, but the it87 driver does not auto-load. You must add the driver names to /etc/modules for them to load at boot time.

You can mark this one closed! Sorry about the dumb question. At least you get to knock off one from the bug list, right?

Looks good, except for in1 and in2. Apparently on your board in2 is not used and +3.3V is connected to in1 instead. Just change the labels in /etc/sensors3.conf. You can add ignore statements for in2, in5 and in6.
