Thank You Sirs of Your kind answers. Only problem is that I can also
use Google and I can look what is included in CentOS 4.2 (updated).
That's why I specified motherboard (and of course forget to define
chipset which is Intel 955X/ICH7R.
1) lm_sensors in CentOS 4.2 is old 2.8.7, at the moment 2.10.0 and
recommended kernel is >= 2.6.11 !
2) sensor-detect doesn't find any sensors, message ;
"Sorry, no chips were detected.
Either your sensors are not supported, or they are
connected to an I2C bus adapter that we do not support.
See doc/FAQ, doc/lm_sensors-FAQ.html, or
(FAQ #4.24.3) for further information.
If you find out what chips are on your board, see
http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/newdrivers.html for driver status."
3) I tried to compile according to guidelines fro documentation, message
# make user
"make: *** No rule to make target `sysfs/libsysfs.h', needed by
Now I'm a little confused from which library ? Where should I find this
No big deal !
My motherboard and chipset are too new for lm_sensors in CentOS 4.2.
I'll just wait and see if there will be an updated version someday.
(See some other thread of Sata drives and monitoring in this mailing list)
Thanks of Your attention !
