FS#1104 - [lm_sensors] Fail to load it87 module at boot


I ran sensors-detect, it detected two modules :


Those have been added to /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors :

# This file is sourced by /etc/init.d/lm_sensors and defines the modules to
# be loaded/unloaded.
# The format of this file is a shell script that simply defines variables:
# HWMON_MODULES for hardware monitoring driver modules, and optionally
# BUS_MODULES for any required bus driver module (for example for I2C or SPI).

HWMON_MODULES="coretemp it87"

But only coretemp is loaded at boot.

I can manually load it87 module (modprobe it87) and get all sensors working but for some reason it87 module is not loaded at boot.

Fixed. I had to add :




it87 loads fine now at boot

Still, I wonder why HWMON_MODULES is not loading it87 module. If this is normal, please close the issue.
