Subject: [gentoo-user] lm_sensors and w83627hf not loadable
Date: Mon, 22 Mar 2010 00:21:18
1 I see lots of bug reports about this in several linux OSs but not able
2 to see a solution.
4 I've make the propers kernel settings and the w83627hf modules is
5 built and available in /lib/modules/*
6 I tried rebuilding the kernel with that stuff built-in. but then
7 lm_sensors couldn't even find tools to work with when running
8 sensors-detect
10 So calling `sensors' just in case it would work:
11 # sensors
12 No sensors found!
13 Make sure you loaded all the kernel drivers you need.
14 Try sensors-detect to find out which these are.
16 Back to a modular kernel:
17 lm_sensors tells me that w83627hf is the one to load in
18 /etc/conf.d/lm_sensors.
20 But any attempt to load it meets with this result (wrapped for mail):
21 modprobe w83627hf
22 FATAL: Error inserting w83627hf
23 (/lib/modules/2.6.33-gentoo/kernel/drivers/hwmon/w83627hf.ko):
24 Device or resource busy
26 Looking at dmesg after running the above command, I find lines like
27 these (repeated several times):
28 [ 1321.715673] w83627hf: Found W83627THF chip at 0x290
30 [ 1321.715712] ACPI: I/O resource w83627hf [0x295-0x296] conflicts
31 with ACPI region HWMT [0x295-0x296]
33 [ 1321.715716] ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device,
34 you should use it instead of the native driver
36 ------- --------- ---=--- --------- --------
38 So anyone know what is wrong here?
