Hello
Trying to setup lm-sensors to use with Gkrellm. Have setup many times before. I installed the package lm-sensors but with no dependences which should have had libsensors3or4. Can't find it in the package manager and also libsensors-dev is needed. Are they listed under another name or in another package that I need to install ? Or doesn't the Package Manager show all dependences being installed ? Normally after installing lm-sensors I just need to run > sudo sensors-detect > to setup.  Or is their a different command to run in Pardus ? Using Pardus 2008.1 KDE3.

Was the lm-sensors installed from a PISI package?
(I am not familiarwith this application and haven't yet checked whether it is in the pisi repositiories or not).

If it was a PISI package and you feel it does not install properly you should certainly submit a bug report on this.

Otherwise if none of the mentioned components is available as PISi package you could:

1) write a bug report requesting a new PISI package
2) Google on how this is compiled from source in several other distro's

From the above I understand that you have managed to install your desired application in other distro's (or in Pardus?) before, so it SHOULD be possible in Pardus (after all it is Linux just like any other distro).

I feel that you could opt for option one, or hope for mroe respons here in the forum by specifying a bit further what exactly goes wrong when you try to install this?

Hello Michiel
Thank you for your reply & input

Yes I installed lm sensors through PISI. No I have never tried getting it to work before in Pardus. But have setup the lm-sensors many of times in different distros. I have never had to compile lm-sensors before every distro has always had everything I need in their repos. I will submit a request for a new PISI package. Also will check out lm-sensors website to see what else I need to do to try and get it setup in Pardus. Thanks Again

Hello atolboo
I have not run across that their was a Pardus Wiki. Thank You for the link. Yes I have tried sudo & su sensors-detect nothing works. Normally when I run sensors-detect it starts up and scans your chip sets answer the questions, but in Pardus all it does is goes to a new line in the terminal. It is like I don't have lm-sensors installed or their are missing dependences.  I have setup 25-30 different systems with lm-sensors and help that many more people on various Linux forums with lm-sensors issues. This is why I am confused why I am having problems with it in Pardus. Only thing I have not tried is maybe try and uninstall lm-sensors than reinstall see if that will work. Thank You atolboo

Did you give the user superuser privileges ?

An example of where I ran into in Pardus 2008 as compared to Pardus 2007 is e.g. in this thread:
http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=805.msg7898#msg7898

Perhaps something similar is happening when you try to run lm-sensors as regular user?

Tasma-System-Users Managment and check the checkbox " give systemadministrator privileges to this user"...might help

Sorry if this suggestion is completely the wrong way to find the solution to your problem, but I thought it was worth a try, you never know.

Hello
Thank You everyone for your input & help. It is really appreciated.
Well I uninstalled lm-sensors than reinstalled. This time when I ran sensors-detect it worked as it should. I now have Gkrellm & lm-sensors setup. Everything is good.
