Can't access /proc file as root (Examined/Solved - lm_sensors 2.6.0 (CVS) Linux 2.4.7)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
I have patched lm_sensors 2.6.0 and i2c, both updated from CVS, into kernel
2.4.7. I compiled kernel with the appropriate options, including i2c proc
support. When I try to run sensors -s as root, or sensors for that matter, I
get the error of "Can't access /proc file".
I tracked this down just today with the help of a coworker. The short answer is
to build the I2C drivers as modules, and then to insert them. That seems to
solve it. For some reason, there seems to be some issues with the latest I2C
drivers being built into the kernel (vs. as modules). We'll try to track down
what the issues are and fix this for the next release.
(I marked this as 'solved', eventhough it's just partially solved using a work
around at this point.)
