it87 driver modified to support ITE8716 sensor chip on new AM2 motherboards
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||khali|
I just got a new AM2 motherboard (Gigabyte GA-M55plus-S3g) that has a ITE8716 sensors chip. I am using kernel 2.6.16 and modified the source it87.c by replacing all instances of 8712 with 8716. Then recompiled the driver and ran modprobe it87. Surprise it works !! Apparently its a clone of the ITE8712 because i get all the fan, temp and voltage readings. This ITE8716 is also in the top end ASUS M2N32-SLI DELUXE motherboard and probably more. So many will be looking for it.
