i2c-piix4.o does not load on a Compaq Presario 5670 (Examined/Solved - lm_sensors-2.8.0-3mdk kernel-126.96.36.199mdk-1-1mdk)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
Having installed the lm_sensors and liblm_sensors2 packages and running
sensors-detect on my Compaq Presario 5670 all seem to be OK except that the
i2c-piix4.o module does not load.
1. Does this computer not have a sensor chip? It sure has a piix4 chip, see below.
2. What is meant by the SMBus controller not enabled? Is this a BIOS issue or is
the sensor HW missing? Can the SMBus be activated by SW, eg from lm_sensors?
The BIOS is very crippled, so from there one cannot find if temperature readings
and voltages are available :(
