This is a follow-up to ticket 1483. I'm trying every new version of
lm_sensors on my client's Dell 650 server, and I'm still not getting any
2.8.3 gives me a clue:
i2c-piix4.o: Host SMBus controller not enabled!
When I forcefully enable it, i2cdetect -l lists an SMBus:
i2c-0 smbus SMBus PIIX4 adapter at 0580 Non-I2C SMBus adapter
But as soon as I let sensors-detect scan it, the machine locks up:
Probing for PCI bus adapters...
Use driver `i2c-piix4' for device 00:0f.0: ServerWorks CSB6 South Bridge
Probe succesfully concluded.
Next adapter: SMBus PIIX4 adapter at 0580 (Non-I2C SMBus adapter)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively):
Client found at address 0x00
I don't think I can get any information from Dell about the hardware of
this machine. I tried and the guy gave me a wrong address for the SMBus
I have no desire to repeat the crash-and-burn for all 127 remaining
adresses. Is there a way to use dmidecode to find the sensor chips?
There are things like this in it's output:
DMI type 27, 12 bytes.
OEM-specific Information: 0x0000DD02
The "OEM-specific Information" seem to be pointers to other handles.
Those handles look like this:
DMI type 221, 19 bytes.
Header and Data:
DD 13 02 DD 00 00 00 3A F0 04 FC 00 00 00 00 00
00 62 F0
Maybe a recipe to gain access to that data.
Any ideas or hints?
