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
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 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.
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
After I ran sensors-detect, it said that ─░ 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).
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).
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 !
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?
I can't seem to update the repository indexes regardless of which official server/mirror I use. I pick one server from the built-in software sources list and then I get this:
W:Failed to fetch ftp://ftp.fi.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/updates/contrib/source/Sources.gz Unable to fetch file, server said 'Failed to open file.

Now how can that be? Shouldn't the built-in repository addresses be correct? My installation is one week old clean install. Since then I've installed broadcom wlan-drivers (I tried repo update w/ wired connection too) and Dropbox but other than that I'm pretty clean.
I've created a local repository, my web server (apache) is up and running and my repo is inside it, so I want to install debian using it, in the stage of enter manually the info of the debian mirror I put:
But after this, the installation tell me that it doesn't find the repo, I tried several ways, like: http://192.168.10.1; /repo/; /repo/ binary/ but nothing. What is the correct syntax to use my local repo?
How can I know about the debian files I've installed from the internet via command line? Is there any command to have info about debian files? I've installed google chrome, opera, etc...I want to what debian files I've installed? Can I know there locations?
I have an issue when running the phpinfo() command on a webpage. Occasionally the Default timezone setting shows 'utc', at others it show 'Europe/Berlin'. To prove I'm not going mad I screen captured a short video of the display changing while all I was doing was pressing F5.
The system is set to a European timezone i.e. both date and hwclock commands show 'CET'. There was an update to the Debian tzdata package which I installed at the beginning of February 2010. I'm not aware of there being a problem before that but I could be wrong about that.
Most of the time whenever I run dpkg -l I get cryptic output. For instance
Because I normally use it to see only one file (while multiple files are possible as well), was wondering if there was a way to tell dpkg to show couple of lines as output. I do see that there is a /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg file as well as /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg.d directory as well. Looking forward to info. on the same.

I've seen some desktop screengrabs which have included a transparent graphic (usually in the upper right corner of the screen) that displays current system information such as the hostname, kernel revision, CPU utilization, etc., that is constantly updated.Is that something that is available from Debian? I would like to install it to check it out, if it's available.

I'm about to buy a laptop and there are some interesting and affordable Toshiba ones, but they all have Intel GMA 4500M graphic card. I have NVIDIA card on my desktop and their drivers work perfectly, i was just wandering what the situation with Intel's graphic cards is. I need 3D rendering for compiz and stuff, is it too much of a hassle to enable them?
Is there a command line utility to tell me about what's inside a video file? Say I have a .mpg file. I want to know about the video stream and the various audio streams, the codec used for the video stream, the bitrate of the video stream, and so on.
After an automatic update from Debian I get the following error while starting a root terminal: An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for gnome-terminal. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly. Failed to contact configuration server: the most common cause is a missing or misconfigured D-bus session bus daemon.
