Description Dimitris 2004-02-21 15:26:50 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040124

Description of problem:
sensors-detect script will scan the system for possible
hardware monitoring chipsets. once one is found, the
script will propose a set of commands to be inserted
in /etc/modules.conf and one of the /etc/rc* scripts.

For example:
#----cut here----
# I2C adapter drivers
modprobe i2c-isa
# I2C chip drivers
modprobe it87
# sleep 2 # optional
/usr/local/bin/sensors -s # recommended
#----cut here----

The problem here is that the path proposed to execute
the 'sensors' command is wrong. The /usr/local/bin is
used when lm_sensors is installed from the 'make' command,
but the RPM file installs it under /usr/bin.

The sensors-detect script should first find the correct
path to propose to the user instead of expecting the
sensors command to be in a fixed location.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install lm_sensors rpm
2. run sensors-detect
3. see the output

Actual Results:  A wrong path is suggested from 'sensors' command:

/usr/local/bin/sensors -s # recommended

Expected Results:  The sensors-detect script should search for the
right path, and not use a fixed location.
