Description Need Real Name 2000-08-16 21:32:38 UTC
When running sensors-detect, the program correctly identifies that the
motherboard is using a VIA chipset:

 Do you want to probe now? (YES/no):
Probing for PCI bus adapters...
Use driver `i2c-viapro' for device 00:07.3: VIA Technologies VT 82C596
Apollo ACPI
Probe succesfully concluded.

However, the kernel module for i2c-viapro.o is non-existant.  Also, the
source file is not in the kernel tarball in the kernel source RPM.  So it
looks like the lm_sensors patch will need to be added again with the source
file kernel/busses/i2c-viapro.c.

I am using the 2.2.16-17smp kernel.



Comment 1 Glen Foster 2000-08-18 19:31:13 UTC
Michael, we need to understand ASAP if we can fix this for the current release -

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-18 19:36:03 UTC
Yes, Glen, already investigating.

Comment 3 Tim Powers 2000-08-19 13:00:31 UTC
Here is the output from when I ran sensors-detect on my home machine (only the
applicable parts:

Probing for PCI bus adapters...
Use driver `i2c-viapro' for device 00:07.4: VIA Technologies VT 82C686 Apollo
Use driver `i2c-voodoo3' for device 01:05.0: 3Dfx Voodoo3
Probe succesfully concluded.

 We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
Load `i2c-viapro' (say NO if built into your kernel)? (YES/no): YES
modprobe: Can't locate module i2c-viapro
Loading failed ()... skipping.
Load `i2c-voodoo3' (say NO if built into your kernel)? (YES/no): YES
modprobe: Can't locate module i2c-voodoo3
Loading failed ()... skipping.

So it's not just i2c-viapro that's missing, also i2c-voodoo3 is missing.


Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-21 19:45:08 UTC
i2c_viapro appears to be listed as "complete but untested"
and i2c_voodoo3 as "beta" quality.  This is probably why
they are not included...

Comment 5 Need Real Name 2000-08-21 20:03:32 UTC
If I'm not mistaken, this is a bug report for Redhat 7.0 *BETA*, right? :-)

What better way to test them than to put them in?  Anyhow, I for one would
appreicate that the i2c_viapro.o be put in so that I don't have to re-build
kernel RPMs when 7.0 ships.

Comment 6 Michael K. Johnson 2000-08-21 20:26:47 UTC
We are trying to build a kernel that we can support.  Before we
add modules even to a beta, we want to hear a certain level of
confidence from the authors.
