it87 doing something weird (Examined/Solved - lm_sensors 2.8.2 Linux 2.4.22-gentoo-r2)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
I have a GA-7N400-L. This board has an IT8712F chip. When the modules are loaded
(i2c-nforce2, i2c-isa, it87), the motherboard's CPU temp warning goes off, as if
the processor is running too hot. Unloading the modules does not change
anything. It requires a reboot for the warning to stop.
To me, it appears that the it87 driver is modifing something that it should not
be, since it is when it is loaded that the beeping begins. The temperature
readings for the cpu normally show temperatures > 100 C once it is loaded.
Immediately after the reboot, the temp in the bios is ~45 C.
Thanks for your help,
Michael --- We tried to remove all initializations in 2.8.2 but it looks like
the it87 driver still sets the temp_type. Sorry. Fixed in CVS,
Thanks for the report.
To fix, get CVS,
or comment out the temp_type write in it87_init_client().
