When I run sensors-detect I get no output:
No i2c device files found.
Is there something wrong with
lm-sensors or am I missing a dependency? The hardware is x86 and there should be i2c sensors supported by the kernel. I do see the i2c-dev module in lsmod's output. Thanks.
# lsmod | grep i2c
i2c_dev 16384 0
It's better to use a general purpose (live-) distribution for that, which has 'all' imaginable kernel modules preinstalled, once you know which are needed, you can install them (include them into your build).
That sounds like a good strategy. I guess
sensors-detect guesses based on signatures then loads modules to verify... I cannot read perl.
