    Default LM_Sensors 3.1.2 Released: Better HW Support

    Phoronix: LM_Sensors 3.1.2 Released: Better HW Support

    Jean Delvare has announced the second point release for the LM_Sensors 3.1 series, which was introduced last March. The LM_Sensors 3.1.2 release delivers better Linux system sensor monitoring support by preemptively adding support for future kernels and HID devices in libsensors, the sensord daemon has received a lot of clean-ups, and sensors-detect is better detecting the supported sensors with drivers. The LM_Sensors 3.1.2 release announcement can be found on the project's mailing list...

    Not too clear from the site, but did they ever get temp reporting working in the AMD phenom II's?

    According to the official list, there should be working support in 2.6.33 for all hardware that doesn't suffer from Errata 319, which may or may not include your CPU. (Of course, according to the documentation this feature doesn't actually measure absolute temperature anyway, just temperature relative to the point at which maximum cooling is needed.)

    The sensor on AM3 CPUs works correctly. Erratum 319 applies to all Socket F and AM2+ CPUs, but it says that the sensor "might be unreliable", so it might actually work in specific cases.

    The k10temp driver is part of the kernel (or you can get it from the website separately if you want to compile it yourself); the new version of the lm_sensors library is not required.

    Does lm-sensors support reporting voltage values on any hardware?

    my p2 X4 3.4 now works on a n msi board, this was only fixed in 2.6.33

    Thanks a lot pheldens. This means that eventually, in a few years, lm-sensors might be able to report voltages on a P45 motherboard.
