Sensors on Intel DQ67EP

On my previous board I was using the information from lm-sensors for Cacti and phpSysInfo, so after upgrading to a new system board it turned out lm-sensors did not work out of the box for my Intel motherboard DQ67EP. A sensors-detect gave me the following information:

Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done. Driver to-be-written': * ISA bus, address 0x290 Chip Nuvoton W83677HG-I Super IO Sensors' (confidence: 9) Note: there is no driver for Nuvoton W83677HG-I Super IO Sensors yet. Check for updates.

Doing some research it turned out I had to install a separate driver as kernel module on my Debian 6.0.6 (Squeeze) system. You can find the driver on this website.

Unpack the tar or zip and do a ‘make’ and ‘make install’ in the unpacked dir (be sure you have linux-headers installed):

make CC [M]  /tmp/groeck-w83627ehf-d0f3584/w83627ehf.o Building modules, stage 2. MODPOST 1 modules CC      /tmp/groeck-w83627ehf-d0f3584/w83627ehf.mod.o LD [M]  /tmp/groeck-w83627ehf-d0f3584/w83627ehf.ko

make install cp w83627ehf.ko /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/kernel/drivers/hwmon depmod -a -F /boot/ 2.6.32-5-amd64

modprobe w83627ehf

That’s it, working sensors!
