Description of problem:
The coretemp.ko is missing in the RHEL5.3 kernel. lm_sensors from RHEL-repo supports the coretemp module.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5.4b with 2.6.18-157 is affected as well.
Install any RHEL5 kernel with a Intel Core-CPU plus lm_sensors.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL5 on any Intel Core-machine
2. Install lm_sensors an do sensors-detect
3. no sensors are detected
no sensors are detected
sensors are detected
I did a backport of the coretemp.c included in kernel-rt-18.104.22.168-93.el5rt.src.rpm
This works fine for me.
What is your opinion?
A hwmon update was done in 5.4 -- 5.3 does not support coretemp.
If you need coretemp in 5.3 please contact your support representative and request it for a z-stream kernel.
