Dell Latitude - SMSC - Found unknown chip with ID 0x2803
|Reported by:||ticket||Owned by:||juergh|
I've been playing a bit with lm-sensors. I tried detecting sensors and got this bit in the output:
Trying family `SMSC'... Yes Found unknown chip with ID 0x2803
(It also detected correctly the processor's sensors which uses coretemp and works perfectly.)
I have no idea what to do with that ID 0x2803. I looked on SMSC's page (where they seem to have lots of schematics), but I can't figure out what to look for. Google turned out a few pages of with people who have the same thing in their computers, but otherwise no leads. I read most of the lm-sensors wiki but I couldn't find more ideas (other than writing this ticket).
I'm willing to do a bit of searching or hacking, but I have no idea where to start.
PS. I'm not sure if this is related or not: I _know_ the laptop has some more sensors available. The i8kutils package on Ubuntu for example can read (and set) the fan speed. (AFAIK there's just one fan in the laptop.) I don't know if it's related to the chip detected above. Either way, isn't there a simple way to get lm-sensors to do whatever i8kutils is doing?
