Asus Z97-P,lm-sensors, new it87 driver, how to start it87 during boot ?

today with my little effort and big effort from GROEK (team member of lm-sensors devs) there is a new it87 driver with the ability to acquire fans speed , voltages, temperatures from it8606E chipset of the asus z97-p


you can dowload it from and compile it.

but how to start this driver at boot ?

opensuse 42.2 sensors-detect obviously does not know this new feature.

what file of lm-sensors configuration to modify ?


i found it.

in /etc/sysconfig/lm-sensors file

change the statement
HWMON_MODULES=“coretemp it87”
