Ticket #1749 (closed task: invalid)
P4C800-E CPU temp @ 85.0C (Examined/Unsolved - lm_sensors 2.8.7 Debian Sarge Linux 2.6.7-1-SMP)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
On installing lm-sensors with apt-get, CPU temp flies up to 85C, both in the
output of sensors and in /sys/bus/i2c/devices/...
Removing lm-sensors, and running with just the modules required for i2c, the
correct values are shown. --- You don't provide much information about your system and exact problem you see.
I guess that your monitoring chip is a Winbond W83627THF, and you must be using
the w83627hf driver that comes with your (vanilla?) 2.6.7 kernel.
We would need to know what exactly you did to alter the readins. Installing
lm-sensors doesn't do anything per se, and running "sensors" without additional
argument doesn't do much either. On the other hand, running "sensors -s" may
change values, although normally only limit values, not readings. A call to
"sensors -s" may be part of your system init steps, so it may have been called
even if you didn't call it manually.
Please contact the mailing-list (sensors at stimpy.netroedge.com) and detail
- What are the values when everything is fine.
- Which exact action breaks the values.
- What are the values when not OK.
