ASUS P4B (Examined/Solved - linux 2.4.4, 2.4.10 and 2.4.16/lm_sensors)
|Reported by:||contact||Owned by:||somebody|
Linux doesn't detect the SMBus on the ASUS P4B (intel i845 chipset).
In "proc/pci" the entry for the SMBus (device-id 2443) is missing. Is this a
problem of all boards with this chipset? Which Pentium 4 Board can I use, if I
need the sensors-data? --- you are right, you need 2443.
If you can't find an option in the BIOS for ACPI or something similar,
you are stuck. You sure there's no ACPI option?
Then your last alternative is to write a program
that will enable it - this will be difficult - see prog/hotplug
for an example.
Update, this program was written and is included in our 2.6.3 release,
see prog/hotplug/README.p4b for details.
