hwmon doesn't show info for motherboard sensors

Post by zcot » Wed Mar 01, 2017 7:55 pm

The motherboard bios shows the info for 2 temps and 2 fan speeds, but the only thing I can find in the hwmon directories are 1 temp, and it says the cpu is 8 degrees.

Am I supposed to build a more exact kernal to get this to work for conky?

Did you install lm-sensors? See here to configure.

Yes, and based on that, it looks like I must be getting the pci temp from /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon1/temp1_input

but in /sys/class/hwmon/hwmon0 I don't see any files except an empty uevent file. and in hwmon1 there's no other interesting files other than the temp1_input.

I'm using conky lines:
GPU temp: ${nvidia temp}°C
CPU temp: ${hwmon 1 temp 1}°C

Code: Select all
