    Default Can't find lm-sensors

    I am running suse 11 kde 3.5.9. I can't find lm-sensors in the repos, or with a Webpin search. What repo/package are they in?

    Hi
    It's normally installed by default? I think you will find it's
    lm_sensors.

    Code:
    zypper search -s -i sensors
    
    sensors-detect
    
    chkconfig lm_sensors on

    I know it was installed by default in 10.3, but no sign of it in 11. I tried to run sensors-detect this morning to set them up. That's when I noticed they weren't there. That's when I thought it may have been wrapped up inside another package, but no luck finding it. Weird.

    Code:
    fastback:/home/shawnr # zypper search -s -i sensors

    That done it! I come from a Debian based background, and the packages are a little different in Opensuse. There is a slight learning curve Thank you.

    Code:
    hawake@RisingStar:~> su -c "zypper in sensors"
    Password:
    Downloading repository '20080914-221437' metadata [done]
    Building repository '20080914-221437' cache [done]
    Reading installed packages...
    'sensors' is already installed.
    Nothing to do.
    hawake@RisingStar:~> sensors-detect
    bash: sensors-detect: command not found
    hawake@RisingStar:~>

    Hi
    You need to be root user, try;
    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/sensors-detect

    Ok. So, what app do you use to read/report the sensor output?

    Hi
    From the cli run the command sensors. I use gkrellm, with gkrelltop and
    gkx86info plugins along with hddtemp, it also integrates with Nvidia
    for temp monitoring.

    If you are using KDE, you might find kima (applet) useful for such purposes.
