Description Michal Jaegermann 2006-01-28 16:20:57 EST
Description of problem:

I started seeing on a console the following complaints from lm_sensors
startup script:

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):

How reproducible:
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.
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2006-02-19 05:14:54 EST
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 ?

Created attachment 124864 [details]
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.
Comment 6 Dave Burgess 2006-02-19 13:17:19 EST
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.
Comment 7 Dave Jones 2006-02-19 13:31:44 EST
ok, the driver was updated for rc4, so this problem should be fixed for good.
