Operation not permitted ??? (Examined/Solved - lm_sensors 2.5.4 Linux 2.2.17-SMP)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
I've a abit BP6 motherboard.
I've installed the i2c package and lm sensors successfully, but the only problem
is that i can't modprobe the sensors. below are the errors
/lib/modules/2.2.17/misc/i2c-piix4.o: create_module: Operation not permitted
/lib/modules/2.2.17/misc/i2c-piix4.o: insmod i2c-piix4 failed
i put all the modprobe in /etc/*rc the errors only stop when i login into the
terminal as root. Is there anyway that other users can modprobe the sensors?
--- Only root can insmod/modprobe. This is a kernel restriction,
not a sensors restriction.
Generally speaking, you should put the modprobe lines
in a /etc/rc.d/rc.xxx file so that they are executed by
root at system startup.
