Description Dave Sullivan 2011-09-12 18:52:58 UTC
Description of problem:

lm_sensors contains decode-dimms.pl code, but it doesn't support decoding DDR3 spd.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_presence_detect

Apparently upstream this perl script has been moved to i2c-tools

http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/I2CTools

However, ic2-tools is not included as part of RHEL5/RHEL6 or Fedora EPEL.

I do see a bz files dor the ic2-tools EPEL.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=724903

But would think that maybe it should be packaged as part of RHEL instead since it is part of lm_sensors in RHEL5 today.

FYI, you can get this same information using HP PSP hpdiags

hpdiags -v 5

Hello Dave.

If the script's been moved to i2c-tools without changing its name, then it would definitely conflict with lm_sensors. We would have to introduce i2c-tools in a modified form and that isn't very nice solution, is it? We can't simply remove it from the lm_sensors, because that would cause a regression for those who don't want to install EPEL packages.
There's no easy way out of this. Any ideas?

Regards,
Jaromir.
