lm_sensors 2.10.0 with Intel SE7230NH1 something is broken
|Reported by:||dhaab@…||Owned by:||ruik|
Hi, I have 2 Intel SE7230NH1LX server boards that are exhibiting the same strange problem. The first system uses RHEL3 (kernel 2.4.21-47.EL) and the second is using the latest FC5 kernel, both systems however are doing the same thing. After loading the lm_sensors and i2c packages (as appropriate based on kernel), the sensors-detect program will find the eeprom and lm75. This is probably the correct configuration as the Intel Server Manager software for this particular board uses lmsensors and its config files specifies the LM75 as the sensor. So at this point I can use sensors to check voltage/temp/fan speed and everything seems fine.
However, after a reboot of the machine lmsensors no longer finds anything on the SMBus. Running sensors-detect again results in the message "no sensors found". Both the RHEL3 machine and the FC5 machine are giving the same results. This is 2 completely separate motherboards. To try to solve the problem I have done complete reinstallation of the lmsensors software on the RHEL3 box as well as a complete redo (including OS)of the FC5 machine.
Is there something in lmsensors that could potentially damage hardware? Does Intel just suck? I would really appreciate any help/direction you could give.
