Ticket #2368 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Module loading order is unstable
|Reported by:||khali||Owned by:||khali|
With some hwmon drivers auto-loading, the order of the hwmon class devices is different when starting the lm_sensors service at boot and when restarting it later. While libsensors-based applications do not care, applications which access the hwmon class devices directly such as fancontrol are adversely affected.
See the discussion at: http://lists.lm-sensors.org/pipermail/lm-sensors/2009-January/025197.html
- Make sure sensors-detect stops the lm_sensors service before scanning the system.
- Exclude the already loaded hwmon drivers from the list of drivers recommended by sensors-detect.
This will not fix systems already affected by the system, but will prevent more systems from being affected in the future.
