I2C Tools for Linux
The I2C tools that used to be part of the lm-sensors package have been split to a separate package. The rationale for that move is that not all hardware monitoring chips are I2C devices, and not all I2C devices are hardware monitoring chips, so having everything in a single package was confusing and impractical.
The i2c-tools package contains a heterogeneous set of I2C tools for Linux: a bus probing tool, a chip dumper, register-level SMBus access helpers, EEPROM decoding scripts, EEPROM programming tools, and a python module for SMBus access.
All versions of Linux are supported, as long as I2C support is included in the kernel.
Files are signed by Jean Delvare.
Recommended patches: none.
Documentation is available.
If you have Subversion installed on your machine, you can check out the latest version of the stable code using the following command:
svn checkout http://lm-sensors.org/svn/i2c-tools/trunk i2c-tools
If you're not familiar with the use of Subversion we recommend the excellent Subversion book.
If you can't use Subversion, nightly snapshots are also available for download.
Use the linux-i2c mailing list for now, again short of something better.
