HP Compaq 6720s no thermal-sensor detected

Reported by: ticket Owned by: somebody
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: hardware Version: 3.0.3
Keywords: thermal zone, unknown chip Cc: xzorn@…


I have encountered following problem.

lm-sensors version

map@mp1:~$ sensors -v
sensors version 3.0.2 with libsensors version 3.0.2

and it's running on newest packages from ubuntu 8.10.

sensors-detect failed to detect the chip under super-i/o smsc and only displaying:

Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): 
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
Trying family `National Semiconductor'...                   No
Trying family `SMSC'...                                     Yes
Found unknown chip with ID 0x3600

Trying family `ITE'...                                      No

It's not possible for ACPI to control the Thermal-Zone correctly. I've read, that i should use "cpqhealth" in the FAQs on this site. But how should i do that?

I would be glad, if somebody could help me out a bit. regards
