Debian Hardware :: Can't Seem To Pull Any Info On The Temp Sensors For New MSI H61M-P21(B3) Mobo?
Aug 7, 2011
LM-Sensors can't seem to pull any info on the temp sensors for my new MSI H61M-P21(B3) mobo. Is MSI just not Linux friendly? Or could it possibly be that there really are no temp sensors on this board? I must be missing something simple here
I recently assembled a Dell T5400 workstation. I'm getting some strange issues with this machine concerning fan controller.
-Only 2/4 motherboard fans are detected. All fans have RPM signal -The only sensors that are reporting temperatures are for the memory modules,graphic card and disk but not from my Intel CPU's. This chip reports memory module temperatures as they tend to get pretty hot (DDR2-FBDIMM). -Every time a fan speed gets reported with sensors command the bus freezes for a moment. Videos playback and audio chops for a moment and continue normally.
After removing module dell_smm_hwmon the sensors command executed without interrupting multimedia flow but no fan speeds were reported also.
As a temp solution I blacklisted the dell_smm_hwmon module and I solved the high fan noise problems and the bus freeze.
As it turns out i8k module for fan control is very buggy for some DELL models. Can I manually configure it somehow to work?
So to sum up the problems my problems are:
No CPU temperatures reporting. 2 Fans Speed and PWM controller info missing, and freezing the bus when probing to get speeds from those identified (dell_smm_hwmon module issues).
The object is to get fancontrol working in my setup.
just downloaded gkrellm and I go to set the temperature sensors and I get "No Sensors Detected" now I've never dealt with something of this nature before so can anyone tell me where I might begin with this one?
Is there a Linux application which can display motherboard and CPU sensor information and which also satisfies one other, absolutely key, requirement: It should be directly usable, after installation, by a reasonably intelligent computer application user. That is, it does NOT require deep internal knowledge of specific hardware or obscure system software customisation. It does not require hours, days or weeks of reading of documentation which is so crafted as to be the antithesis of end-user guides. It must be capable of being invoked easily.
This eliminates all software that the Ubuntu Software Centre lists when performing a search with the term 'sensors', with the exception of xsensors. All other software listed with this search installs without error but is then totally invisible to me - not even listed under 'installed software'. I am aware a key requirement to be a Linux developer is an advanced commitment to play games of 'I bet I can make my software harder to use than yours', but I'm too old for that now. I don't have a need to prove how technically capable I am.
Xsensors installs and tells me where it can be found, but is inadequate as it lists only 2 CPU core temperature readings. It does not give me any indication of motherboard temperature or fan speeds. That's all I want to do - get a simple snapshot of sensor values without having to resort to entering BIOS setup. It's the sort of information that is so easily available using the ASUS-supplied 'asus-probe' software under Windows. Is it possible, given the key requirement previously mentioned?
Some of my applications use different window types for pull-down menus than what compiz window animation think. This means that I get normal open window animation on these pull-down menus instead of the menu-theme. Inside the CompizConfig you can specify exactly which window types the different animations apply to, and you can use "grab" to probe your window for this info. My problem is that I can't "grab" the info for the pull-down, since it leaves "grab" mode once I try to open the menu (and grabs the info for the parent window instead of the menu). How do I get to know the window properties of the pull-downs, so that I can map them to the relevant window animation theme?
I can't for the life of me get the xsensors to work. I installed lm-sensors, the applet and also xsensors.I followed everything on this guide:URl... Went through it more than twice and a couple of restarts. I just can't figure out what's wrong.When I run "sensors" nothing is found. I ran the sensors configuration and it only found one device to add to /etc/modules. Please see the trace below, I would be very grateful if you can help me find the fix for this! The desktop is an HP Pavilion a730n with a Pentium4 processor.
I have a web server whos DocumentRoot is:/tmp/wwwNow, /temp/www/fake/ is a directory that contains a series of other files/folders.What I want to do is access the files in /temp/www/fake as if they were in the root directory (/temp/www/)For example:
could either be located in "/temp/www/test.php" -or- located in "/temp/www/fake/test.php"
so "http://127.0.0.1/test.php" would essentially call both directories. Is this possible? Whould I do this through apache or through the actual file system somehow? (Like some sort of symbolic link?) I would love to hear your input.
I would like to use lm-sensors with my new PC.With my old one lm-sensors showed all sensors of CPU, GPU, wattage and Fan.With the new AMD64 (kernel 2.6.32-5 on Debian Squeeze) I get only the temperature of the GPU and the HDD.The only found sensor is "Fintek F71882FG/F71883FG Super IO Sensors"No embedded "AMD [...] thermal sensors" found in sensors-detect How can I fix it?sensors-detect
I am a real debian noob. I may be too old for this (things have changed a bit since I first started hacking fortran in 1971), but will try one more time.I am editing this original post to clarify: my debian install will not boot to GUI. It will boot to a shell under the advanced option.I have tried loading debian 8.1.0 from DVD. The system will install, but will not boot after the install.On a regular reboot, the last command is fsck. Then it hangs.
On a recovery mode reboot, the last output is:[7.940682] FAT-fs (sdal) utf8 is not a recommended IO charset for FAT files (my handwriting is bad - may not be 100%). - then it will hang.The problem may well be the result of UEFI and the m5a97 R2.0 mobo I am using with my amd 8230E processor. I've been doing some research on UEFI and archlinux. It is a bit of a challenge for me.
I've managed to load ubuntu on this drive. I burned a debian 8.2.0 live DVD, but it will hang also. debian live will hang before it gets to a GUI. The debian live will run the GUI desktop environment with the amd64 fail safe option. When I install debian from the live DVD (the 1.4gb DVD, vs the regular 4.0 gb DVD), it will hang before it gets to the GUI.
I replaced my motherboard and processor but am keeping my old hard drive without reformatting it. Things work well except that I cannot connect to the internet. I am thinking that I just need to reconfigure the connection to see the new network hardware. I tried /etc/init.d/networking restart but that doesn't do anything. What am I missing? By the way it is a wired connection - not wireless.
After I ran sensors-detect, it said that İ needed k10temp module to be compiled, so I searched some forums and got required stuff. However, before compiling it, I added the gnome applet for sensors to the panel, and surprisingly it shows the cpu and motherboard temperatures. How reliable it is? Do I still need to compile k10temp? (I will compile it since I don't want to use a kernel from experimental repo).My kernel is 2.6.32-5-amd64, TestingCPU: AMD Phenom 2 x4 955 BE
I have an issue with IBM XSeries 236M rack server running Debian Squeeze (2.6.32-3-vserver-amd64). I have installed "lm-sensors", "fancontrol", "acpid" and "acpi-support-base" packages. The problem is that I cannot get fan voltage and RPM displayed.
Command "sensors" will only display core temperatures: root@xseries:/home/yang# sensors k8temp-pci-00c3
I have a pull-down corner on both of my gnome-panels. If I hover my mouse over it, i even get the resize cursor, but you can't actually resize the panel. I'm also seeing them on my screenlets. See the shot below:
The pull-down corners are in the red boxes. It's very clear in the top box on the gnome-panel; it's a little harder to see in the bottom one on the weather screenlet, but it's there. I have a bottom gnome-panel, too, and it's on that one, as well. I just recently noticed them, but I'm not sure where they came from. Does anyone know how to get rid of them? It's not really causing any problems. It just bothers me because I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I've tried searching the web and the forums for a solution but I'm having a hard time finding anything because I don't know the official name for that design element.
I have Debian Squeeze with Gnome "sensors-applet" installed.I have a Nvidia 7300GT GPU whose Thermal Monitoring(Temperature) is Shown fine on "nvidia-settings" GUI. But ,Sensors Applet in Debian shows only CPU temp and if I install hddtemp,it will show hard disk temperatures.
I ended up rebuilding the package from debian source enabling nvidia support.and it worked(with "DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS="--enable-gui --with-nvidia" Has Any Work Around to show nvidia GPU temperature without rebuilding the package ?PS:Below is a screenshot of nvidia GPU temperature showing in the top panel(of Gnome). sensors-applet_nvidia.png (5.5 KiB) Viewed 518 times
Having installed the 2.6.32 backport for Lenny, I have suddenly noticed that my Gkrellm doesn't display CPU and MB temperature anymore. Also, the smart sensors are inaccessible. Smartctl cannot access the readings even when run manually in a root terminal. I tried reinstalling lm-sensors and running sensor-detect again but it didn't help. What else needs to be updated to let the backported kernel see the hardware sensors?
I downloaded Debian Stable last night, and everything appear to go smoothly. Today, I booted up the new OS to try it out for the first time. As I was exploring a few of the features, I decided to pull up a web browser. No internet connection.
No big deal, I thought, as I searched around for a way to connect wirelessly. I couldn't find a way to do so. I consulted one of my more Linux savvy friends, who advised me to pull up the terminal and enter a command to start the network-manager. According to the terminal, no such file currently exists on my system.
This is a bit of a conundrum for me, since I am on my university campus with no ethernet cord to attempt a direct connection. Is there any way to get the network-manager onto my computer? Also, did I mess up somewhere in the installation, or did someone not package the file with CD1 for some unknown reason?
I just got a dell studio 1557 with core i7 processor. I have heard they run warm and suspect this one is no exception but am having a hard time monitoring the temps. When doing acpi -V i can see 2 thermal zones (0,1) with the first being 63C and the second always staying 26.8C. When I am doing a lot of processing the first thermal zone jumps up quickly. First, should that be the processor temp? Secondly, any way to get more accurate readings with lm-sensors(sensors-detect can find no monitoring items).
Bizarrest thing after swapping in my HDD from an old laptop into a new one. My LXDE panel temperature display is showing "-273," AKA absolute zero in celcius. I've done a bit of googling for lxde temp sensor, and most of the discussions I saw referred to installing lm-sensors, which apparently I did not yet have, although on my old laptop the temperature was shown correctly. I believe the automatic sensor location is off and I need to give it the correct location manually. I am unsure of how to do that, and it makes sense that it's hardware specific. After installing lm-sensors, I saw that sensors-detect provides me with a list of the correct temp sensors in my computer, but I'm unsure how to save those results so the computer can use them.
explain the following issue I have with Debian IA 64:I tried on a PC (Mobo Gigabyte G41M-ES2H, core 2 duo, 4 GB RAM DDR2) the live CD of Debian Lenny IA64 and everything worked just fine, which was a very good thing because none of all other major ia64/i386 distros of Linux (Mandrake, ubuntu, fedora) did so. In a nutshell it seems that the IGP G41 chipset is the cause of these setup failure (Everything is OK when using a PCI-e graphic card that I need in another computer)rd as someone (viewtopic.php?=17&t=49186&p=282839&hilit=G41M+ES2H#p282839) successfully installed Lenny on a very similar mobo. To go to the point what I do not understand is when I launch the iso Cd to now install the same version of Debian, everything freezes at the very beginning of the boot and the screen goes blank.
I down loaded Debian 5.0.4 and burned it to CD (several times I might add till it was right) and now the computer I'm putting it on wont acknowledge it as a boot disk and load. It does not have a problem with my windows cd, which has a crack and the start of all my problems, But not the Debian CD-1 disk. what now? The computer is an IBM thinkpad a22p. Everything works as far as I can tell. But I was going to reinstall Windows and failed in that because of a small crack on the edge of the disk that stopped the install and any hope of accessing the file on the laptop. Microsoft does not support windows xp any longer, you must buy windows 7, but the ibm will not run it due to processor speed and ram limitations. But it will run linux and I'm willing to try it just to get out of microsoft control.
Idon't know what else to do. This is the link to where I downloaded the software ( [URL] ). The others five that i downloaded were on the same page that I got this one. Are there bad files here? Is there a missing file in the disc?
so i cannot install anything because update-info-dir file is missing from /var/lib/dpkg/info/ .. I've searched for the last day and a half for a way to fix this, but nothing. can't even update dpkg because of this. so how do I bypass or fix this so I can install stuff (this is a fresh install of ubuntu 10.04 lts Lucid Lynx).
I'm running Debian unstable on amd64 with KDE4 desktop. I know there exists KDE integration package, that enables iceweasel to use KDE file dialogs. In ubuntu its called kmozillahelper. There was similar packages in Debian (called differently as far as I remember). I happily used it in unstable, but several weeks ago it disappeared for some reason and I can not find it.info on iceweasel + KDE integration in Debian?
There is lot of iso, and the kernel is the very important thing for the install since the hardware is depending, directly. Unfortunately kernels are changing and it could be interesting to have the information for each iso cdrom. I guess it might be somewhere but that's not so obvious and easy to find (never found where). Debian is cool, nicest distro ever !
