lm-sensors and asus z170a motherboard

Postby Antonut » 2017-02-09 09:21

Hi all, glad to be here for the first time.
I just bought my new pc which has an asus z170a as motherboard. however it was not a new installation (i just made a migration of my system from old hardware to the newer one) i didn't get any problem except for the modules loaded for motherboard sensors used by lm-sensors. I have just loaded coretemp module and it shows me the right CPU temperature and nothing else. I would like to have fan speed and chipset temperature.
Here is my sensors-detect output
Code: Select all
Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors.
Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): y
Module cpuid loaded successfully.
Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595...                       No

VIA C7 thermal sensor...                                    No
VIA Nano thermal sensor...                                  No

Some Super I/O chips contain embedded sensors. We have to write to
standard I/O ports to probe them. This is usually safe.
Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no): y
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x2e/0x2f
Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'...               No
Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'...               Yes
Found unknown chip with ID 0xd121
    (logical device B has address 0x290, could be sensors)
Probing for Super-I/O at 0x4e/0x4f
Trying family `National Semiconductor/ITE'...               No
Trying family `SMSC'...                                     No
Trying family `VIA/Winbond/Nuvoton/Fintek'...               No
Trying family `ITE'...                                      No

Some systems (mainly servers) implement IPMI, a set of common interfaces
through which system health data may be retrieved, amongst other things.
We first try to get the information from SMBIOS. If we don't find it
there, we have to read from arbitrary I/O ports to probe for such
interfaces. This is normally safe. Do you want to scan for IPMI
interfaces? (YES/no): y
Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS' at 0xca0...                      No
Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC' at 0xca8...                     No

Some hardware monitoring chips are accessible through the ISA I/O ports.
We have to write to arbitrary I/O ports to probe them. This is usually
safe though. Yes, you do have ISA I/O ports even if you do not have any
ISA slots! Do you want to scan the ISA I/O ports? (YES/no): y
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78' at 0x290...       No
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79' at 0x290...       No
Probing for `Winbond W83781D' at 0x290...                   No
Probing for `Winbond W83782D' at 0x290...                   No

Lastly, we can probe the I2C/SMBus adapters for connected hardware
monitoring devices. This is the most risky part, and while it works
reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble
on some systems.
Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): y
Found unknown SMBus adapter 8086:a123 at 0000:00:1f.4.
Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found.

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
Just press ENTER to continue:

Driver `coretemp':
  * Chip `Intel digital thermal sensor' (confidence: 9)

To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules:
#----cut here----
# Chip drivers
coretemp
#----cut here----
If you have some drivers built into your kernel, the list above will
contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones!

Do you want to add these lines automatically to /etc/modules? (yes/NO)n

Unloading i2c-dev... OK
Unloading cpuid... OK

and here is the sensors output
Code: Select all

I hope someone can help me thank you in advance

maybe your motherboard doesn't supply this information?
not all do.
my sensors output looks very similar.

Hi,
as sensors-detect says, there is a detected sensor which has not loaded the right module
Code: Select all
Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): y
Found unknown SMBus adapter 8086:a123 at 0000:00:1f.4.
Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found.
Module i2c-dev loaded successfully.
.
Of course motherboard has all sensors I need, as my first post, just fan speed and chipset temperature. However it has many more sensors I don't need them. Of course they are visible also in windows and bios, so there is just a module problem due the motherboard is new.
Here is my kernel
Code: Select all
3.16.0-4-amd64

Thanks for help
Antonut

Try a newer kernel from backports. Your hardware is probably newer than that kernel.

Hi,
I suppose that a newer kernel could resolve the problem, so I will try it as soon as possible.
Thanks

Hello,
I've tried to install a new kernel from jessie-backports but I've got some error about linux-base which must be 4 or newer but i have just 3.5 version available.
Some suggestion?

sensors-detect checks for hundreds, maybe even thousands of different sensors, so very meany of them are not detected.
picking out 1 line without telling us why you picked that exact line is meaningless.

Hello thanks for reply,
I picked up that line just because is the only one that sensors-detect output recognized as an unknown sensor, but maybe it is not the right one.
The hardware is new but just since two years ago, has been released from asus, so it is not new at all. I can not believe that there are not any other solutions to show two simple values like fan speed and chipset temperature, when they are perfectly recognized by bios and by windows too.
Thanks

P.S.
I would like to test a newer kernel, because maybe lm-sensors has been updated, perhaps this can solve the issue. Any suggestion about it?

lm_sensors are not part of kernel, it is merely a helper package. OTOH correct kernel driver is required to make your sensor useful. Obviously if the kernel was released before your hardware was manufactured it cannot support your sensor. Kernel developers are very stubborn when it comes to supporting future hardware, they just won't do it!

No one knows which is the right module? I googled a lot about it and I got some guide but no one works for me. Who says that the right module, for asus z170a motherboard, is nct6775, who says it87... the modules are present in my kernel but after manually loads by modprobe, sensors still not showed!
Please help :oops:

Z170 is Skylake, I think. Skylake is not really supported by the default Jessie kernel as Jessie is older than Skylake. I still think you need to install a backports kernel, and probably intel-microcode or firmware-misc-nonfree.

Jessie backports are specifically built to install newer packages in a Jessie system so this error is puzzling. It's hard to guess exactly what "some error" is though. Post exactly what command you are using to install, and exactly the error that is showing.

Hello,
I made this
Code: Select all
sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list <<< "deb http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main"

and this
Code: Select all
sudo apt update && sudo apt install linux-image-amd64/jessie-backports

then it asked me to install linux-image-4.9.0-0.bpo.1-amd64
Code: Select all
I seguenti pacchetti hanno dipendenze non soddisfatte:
 linux-image-amd64 : Dipende: linux-image-4.9.0-0.bpo.1-amd64

and when I try to manually install linux-image-4.9.0-0.bpo.1-amd64, I get this error about linux-base
Code: Select all
 linux-image-4.9.0-0.bpo.1-amd64 : Dipende: linux-base (>= 4.3~) ma la versione 3.5 sta per essere installata

what is going wrong?

I see backports has linux-base (4.3~bpo8+1). Installing that should allow the kernel to be installed.
Wait for a more expert opinion whether that will break anything else.
