Summary0002499: lm_sensors report "General parse error" on AMD K8 CPU
DescriptionThe command sensors reports "General parse error". My CentOS version is 5.1 for x86_64

'rpm -q lm_sensors' reports lm_sensors-2.10.0-3.1

See informations from www.lm-sensors.org on additional information pane
Additional InformationDecember 5th, 2006: Note to k8temp users. The Linux 2.6.19 kernel features a new hardware monitoring driver, k8temp, which supports all recent AMD K8 CPUs. The driver will load automatically on supported systems. Due to technical specificities of this driver, upgrade to lm_sensors 2.10.1 is mandatory. Older versions of libsensors will fail with a "General parse error" message. If you can't upgrade lm_sensors for any reason, you'll have to blacklist the k8temp driver to prevent it from being loaded. Thanks to Artem S. Tashkinov for notifying us.

Why is this still an issue with the current 5.1 rpms?


toracat (manager)

lm_sensors in CentOS 5 is currently lm_sensors-2.10.0-3.1. As noted in "Additional Information", AMD K8 requires at least 2.10.1.

Solution: Install lm_sensors from ATrpms which has a newer version that works with the AMD K8 chip. Refer to http://wiki.centos.org/Repositories for how to set up the Atrpms repository.
