'Lm-Sensors: Hardware Monitoring With the W83627ehf Module'

August 30, 2009 Category: Uncategorized

I have two systems that use the w83627ehf driver for hardware monitoring. However, if this driver is installed with a regular modprobe like:

modprobe w83627ehf

The result will be:

FATAL: Error inserting w83627ehf
(/lib/modules/2.6.28-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/hwmon/w83627ehf.ko): No such
device

I had this issue with the following mainboards:

Asus P5Q-EM DO (Core 2 duo) Asus: P6T deluxe (Core 7i)

The solution is simple, as I found after googling for some time:

modprobe w83627ehf force_id=0x8860

The result:
