This is the latest release of the stable branch, for Linux 2.6.5+. It supports all the devices your kernel supports, as it no longer contains chip-specific code.
- If you are using a custom configuration file and are upgrading from version 2.x, you'll need to convert it to the new format using the included sensors-conf-convert script.
- The default libsensors configuration file now only includes statements which are correct for all mainboards. This is the only way to guarantee that no wrong labels are displayed by default and no incorrect scaling factors are applied by default. If you miss old configuration statements which were working for you, please copy the relevant section of etc/sensors.conf.eg to a custom configuration file in /etc/sensors.d.
- For sysconfig-based distributions, the format of the lm_sensors service configuration file has changed. If you are upgrading from version 3.0.3 or older, use the included sysconfig-lm_sensors-convert script.

lm_sensors-3.3.5 (170 kB)
This is the latest release of the legacy branch, for Linux 2.4.10+. This is a legacy release without support for the newest devices and kernel versions, use only if you are still running a 2.4 kernel.
- IBM Thinkpad users should not install this version.
- You will need to install the libsysfs library (or a dev package from your distribution) if you want support for Linux 2.6, because this version of libsensors depends on it.
- If you are using Linux 2.4, lm-sensors 2.10.8 requires i2c 2.9.0 or newer.
- Recent monitoring applications may not work with this old version of libsensors.
lm_sensors-2.10.8 (914 kB)
Recommended patches: r5768.
i2c-2.10.5 (144 kB, for Linux 2.4 only)
Linux 2.6 users do not need to get this i2c package, it's already part of the kernel tree.
i2c-2.10.5.tar.gz ( PGP signature)
i2c-2.10.5.tar.gz ( PGP signature) (FTP mirror)
This is also available as a Linux 2.4 kernel i2c patch.
- Linux 2.4 users who have a monolithic (as opposed to modular) kernel or simply want some i2c drivers built-in will need to patch their kernel tree. A minor incompatibility issue exists with two drivers (bttv and tvmixer) in the Linux 2.4.23 to 2.4.28 kernels. A complete installation guide with patches is available.
- RPMs for Red Hat and Fedora Core distributions were made available by Axel Thimm on his ATrpms website.
- You can access all released files here.
- The I2C tools now have their separate page.
Anonymous access to our Subversion repository (SVN) is available. This means that users can have direct access to up-to-the-minute code.
We presume that you have Subversion installed on your machine. To check out a working copy of the stable code for this project use the following command:
svn checkout http://lm-sensors.org/svn/lm-sensors/trunk lm-sensors
Or, for the legacy branch:
svn checkout http://lm-sensors.org/svn/i2c/trunk i2c svn checkout http://lm-sensors.org/svn/lm-sensors/branches/lm-sensors-2.10 lm-sensors-2.10
To update the code, use svn update from within any checked out directory. Please read the README and INSTALL files of your working copy for how to build the code. You can use the regular svn commands on the files (like svn log [filename]) to see the comments made by the developers as changes were made.
If you're not familiar with the use of Subversion we recommend the excellent Subversion book which is a valuable resource.
Commits to the repositories are notified on the lm-sensors-notify mailing-list. Feel free to subscribe if you want to be informed of the changes made to the lm-sensors repository.
