Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 179243
lm_sensors complain on a startup
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:24:38 EST
Description of problem:
I started seeing on a console the following complaints from lm_sensors
Starting lm_sensors: Driver 'w83627hf' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
Or this is really a kernel module problem as this shows after a modprobe
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
every time when starting lm_sensors
That sounds very much like a kernel module problem, so i'm reassigning it to kernel.
Read ya, Phil

it's purely informational (and only of interest to developers). I've sent a
patch upstream to lower the level of this printk.
actually, it is indicative of a problem.
The kernel I'm building right now (2.6.15-1.1969_FC5) will have some extra
debugging enabled. Can you grab it from
http://people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/devel/ (It'll be there in an hour
or so), and then paste the output of dmesg here please ?

dmesg for 2.6.15-1.1969_FC5
While booting 2.6.15-1.1969_FC5 I do not see that complaint from lm_sensors.
I haven't upgraded to 1969 yet but it no longer appears with kernel 1955 either.
Althought the initscript reports "Starting lm_sensors" twice on the same line.
lm_sensors seems to be functioning in this configuration.
ok, the driver was updated for rc4, so this problem should be fixed for good.
