one of my goals for the next couple of months is to get lm_sensors
working properly on my computer cluster where i work. the expected
timeframe for a 2.6 kernel upgrade is may/june this year.
my main interest is to obtain status info for Intel E7xxx chipsets;
the current test system is a SuperMicro P4SAA (E7205) mobo.
when running "sensors-detect", i end up with all modules loading and
Driver `w83627hf' (should be inserted):
* ISA bus address 0x0290 (Busdriver `i2c-isa')
Chip `Winbond W83627HF Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9)
your status page says this driver (and 2.6 support) is in beta.
being impatient, i naturally tried to
gcc -c -Wall -DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -O6 \
but -- as your documentation says -- it "will not compile".
--> i'll be happy/willing to participate in some testing here
if you think it would be of use yet.
