i2c / lm_sensors support for v0.2.7

Announcements of packages that are now released.

Postby TalkingToes » Sat Aug 02, 2003 6:10 pm

Hello all,

I am in need of a few EXPERT testers before I do an official announcement, and mirror it to FreescoSoft. This is a bit of a manual setup, as freesco is stripped down quite a bit. You must use the new kernel / modules included, otherwise ioctl errors will appear in the log file. (Apache works fine with my huge kernel). Also, if you have the cron and rrdtool packages, the basics are included as examples.

If you can see in BIOS (the initial setup screen, BEFORE the initial beep) the Temperatures / Voltages, you can probably use this to read it within freesco. You have to use the included kernel and modules.tgz file (located in /kernel.i2c/ and the module drivers (in /kernel.i2c/drv/).

Each motherboard is unique as to which chips they have on it. So I cannot tell you which ones you have. :( These modules are in /drv/. I have in rc_sensors the correct order, but you will probably NOT need them all. The other catch, some MAY lockup :exclamation: the system tight, these you need to # Comment out.

`lsmod` will list the modules loaded currently. Unneeded modules will not be listed, comment these out.
`sensors-detect` will TRY to load all modules, but cannot, but as they are all preloaded, who cares. the LAST screen, will list the ONLY ones you need. Comment the others out.
`sensors` will display the values possible. If you get funky values, (I got 0.00Volts for my +12.0 volt line), try `sensors -s` once, it will take 10 seconds worth of samples, and may report a more believable value instead.

If you want to try this for 0.2.7 Here is the ONLY location:
installpkg <a href='http://peanuts.dnsalias.net/freesco/sensors-05-talkingtoes' target='_blank'>http://peanuts.dnsalias.net/freesco/sensor...-05-talkingtoes</a>

v0.5 is much more solid... if 05 is not there, try 06, 07 etc.. or until the freescosoft mirrors have it.


Keep me up to date if you are trying this out, would like to make it fairly bug free before sending it to the masses. :P Any other suggestions are more than welcome.

I've a newer PC now and I'm interested in reading the i2c sensors to monitor the system. Probably put it in a rrdtool graph.

I've noticed the 038 kernel supports i2c but what's next?
Looks like you've already tinkered with this stuff. Any chance of getting this ported to a 03x package?

I've tried above download link, but the 027 package is no longer there.
