For Core i7 processors and running sensors-detect, coretemp module is not loaded automatically and temperatures not shown. If I manually modprobe coretemp, I see the output.

[test@kovinek ~]$ sensors

[test@kovinek ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors 
# Generated by sensors-detect on Thu Jul  1 13:38:56 2010
# This file is sourced by /etc/init.d/lm_sensors and defines the modules to
# be loaded/unloaded.
# The format of this file is a shell script that simply defines variables:
# HWMON_MODULES for hardware monitoring driver modules, and optionally
# BUS_MODULES for any required bus driver module (for example for I2C or SPI).


# For compatibility reasons, modules are also listed individually as variables
#    MODULE_0, MODULE_1, MODULE_2, etc.
# You should use BUS_MODULES and HWMON_MODULES instead if possible.


Comment 2 Nikola Pajkovsky 2010-07-07 04:28:11 EDT
Do you have installed lm_sensors-sensord?
Comment 3 David Kovalsky 2010-07-08 08:40:02 EDT
Yes, lm_sensors-sensord-3.1.1-8.el6.x86_64
Comment 4 David Kovalsky 2010-07-08 09:53:53 EDT
Furthermore, even if I set 


in /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors

service sensord start doesn't load the module.

Checking the initscript, only sensord is sourced from /etc/sysconfig/. 

It seems like 2 bugs to me:
1) sensors-detect doesn't create a proper config file with coretemp module specified

2) lm_sensors ship a file that isn't used anywhere - /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors
Comment 5 David Kovalsky 2010-07-08 09:54:41 EDT

# configuration for harware sensors monitoring daemon
# in intevrals use suffix "m" for minutes, "s" for seconds, "h" for hours
# 0 means turning facility off

# interval between scanning alarms

# interval between logging

# interval between RRD logging

# RRD db location
# RRD_LOGFILE=/var/log/sensors.rrd
Comment 6 David Kovalsky 2010-07-08 10:01:00 EDT
If it makes a difference, I ran sensors-detect before installing lm_sensors-sensord.

Issues mentioned above don't seem to be limited only to Core i7, raising priority.

Damn, I forgot add a few lines into init script.
