Hardware sensors in Fienix

Post by JohnFante »

I am trying to get lm-sensors to work in Fienix so that I can check the temperature on my graphics card (I exchanged the cooler) but I am having some problems getting it to start.

I installed lm-sensors in synaptic but when I write sensors-detect it gives me a command not found.

Code: Select all

root@Fienix:/home/fienix# sensors-detect
bash: sensors-detect: command not found
root@Fienix:/home/fienix# sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.
Any suggestions to get the temperature readings?

Hi JohnFante,

Sensors works with Fienix on my X5000.

Code: Select all

sensors
Output:

Code: Select all

radeon-pci-0100
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:        +42.5°C  (crit = +120.0°C, hyst = +90.0°C)
Did you copy the kernel modules directory to /lib/modules?

You can execute sensors-detect with /usr/sbin/sensors-detect.

Cheers,

Thank you for the reply. I got a bit further with your help. Still not quite there, thou.

I got sensors-detect going with this.

Code: Select all

/usr/sbin/sensors-detect
It gave this adition to /etc/modules

Code: Select all

 Generated by sensors-detect on Sun May 17 16:11:14 2020
# Adapter drivers
radeon
# Chip drivers
lm63
However I still get no sensors found:

Code: Select all

root@Fienix:/home/fienix# sensors
No sensors found!
Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.
I am running the 5.6 kernel and have copied the 5.6.0_A-EON_X5000 folder with the modules to /lib/modules. I just opened caja as root and copied the folder over. Is that the right way? And is there a way to check if the kernel loads the modules?

I had to go to SU and type the exact location of modprobe before I got a result. Here it is:

Code: Select all

fienix@Fienix:~$ su
Password: 
root@Fienix:/home/fienix# /sbin/modprobe nfsd
root@Fienix:/home/fienix# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
nfsd                  142878  1
uio_pdrv_genirq         7317  0
uio                    18964  1 uio_pdrv_genirq
root@Fienix:/home/fienix# 
Maybe something is a bit "off" in my system since I have to write the exact paths to the different commands ... ?

Is it also possible to measure the CPU temperature of X5000? Do you have to install something for it?
