I have looked around online and in the SuSE documentation, and can't figure this out, so maybe someone here knows.
I have a Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2 Motherboard with Fan speed, Temperature and other sensors on it which I am trying to gain access to in SuSE 9.1 (not just in BIOS).
I have the Sensors package installed, and have run sensors-detect, which comes back with this at the end:
I will now generate the commands needed to load the I2C modules.
Sometimes, a chip is available both through the ISA bus and an I2C bus.
ISA bus access is faster, but you need to load an additional driver module
for it. If you have the choice, do you want to use the ISA bus or the
To make the sensors modules behave correctly, add these lines to
# I2C module options
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
options it87 ignore=-1,0x290
To load everything that is needed, add this to some /etc/rc* file:
# I2C adapter drivers
# I2C chip drivers
# no driver for Smart Battery Charger yet, ask us for one!
# sleep 2 # optional
/usr/bin/sensors -s # recommended
WARNING! If you have some things built into your kernel, the list above
will contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones! You really should
try these commands right now to make sure everything is working properly.
Monitoring programs won't work until it's done.
So I followed its instructions and tried to load each of the kernel modules at the command line. i2c-nforce2, i2c-savage4, i2c-isa, eeprom, and ti87 (at the bottom) loaded ok. I skipped SmartBatt, as this is a desktop. On the rest of the modules: max6650, saa1064, smbus-arp, pca9540, I get "FATAL: Module max6650 not found."
When I do a "find / -name max6650" (one of the modules that failed) I only get one hit "/usr/share/doc/packages/sensors/chips/max6650" but I when I search for i2c-nforce2 (one of the modules that loads) all I find is a documentation file in the same directory.
From what I have read online, it looks to me like the Sensors should come with all the modules it knows about, so I don't know where to go from here.
Any guidance or advice would be greatly appreciated.
