Readout sensors of an EEE Box running Ubuntu server

Readout sensors of an EEE Box running Ubuntu server

Quintin, a friend of mine, showed me a way to readout the sensors of my EEE Box in Ubuntu server.

The first step is to install the lm-sensors package

$ sudo apt-get install lm-sensors

Then you need to load the w83627ehf kernel module using

$ sudo modprobe w83627ehf

In order to have your sensors detected launch the command below and follow the steps shown (basically you can just press [enter] to each question).

$ sudo sensors-detect

Now you can readout your sensors by using the command

$ sensors

Remember if you want to load the w83627ehf module every time the sysem reboots, you need to update your /etc/rc.local with the line:

modprobe w83627ehf
readout of my sensors

  1. Since at least 2.6.32 you need the module asus_atk0110 or set the kernel parameter acpi_enforce_resources=lax (attention, this might damage your system)…
