CPU temperature not shown for K8temp driver
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
In a system with AMD X2 3800+ EE, the CPU temperature is available using the
k8temp driver and correctly shown with the "sensors" command.
The gnome applet, which should perform the same operation, recognizes the CPU
temps in the Preferences->Sensors->libsensors list as available, but, once
selected and after installing the applet, the report reads "Chip not found"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Add the "hw sensors" applet to the Gnome Panel
Configure to show the CPU temps of libsensors (not ACPI, this does not seems to
report the correct one)
"Chip not found" is reported
The correct temperature, as per "sensors" command, should be shown
It seems the applet is one of those packages still from fc6 and not updated to
f7, whatever this could cause.
Short intro: Since Aaron Kurtz unfortunately know longer is a Fedora
Contributer, I've taken over this package from him.
I have a setup with a k8temp chip myself and with the latest upstream version of
gnome-applet-sensors it works fine. I've build a new Fedora package of this version:
This package should become available in the updates-testing repository soon,
when its gets pushed there the update system will add a comment to this bug that
it has become available.
To use / test it once available there do:
yum update gnome-applet-sensors --enablerepo=updates-testing
gnome-applet-sensors-1.8.1-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I just tested the update today and it seems to work correctly, the temperature
is shown as it should.
I would close the bug.
gnome-applet-sensors-1.8.1-1.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
