Z8NA and lm_sensors, again

So I was setting up another Z8NA and wanted to get sensors working. After running around in circles, I simply installed from source and now it Just Works. Which is so much better, compared to last times results. BTW, I also install lm-sensors 3.3.4 by hand from source and got a z8na.conf from here.

cd ~/work/sys
wget http://khali.linux-fr.org/devel/lm-sensors/config/sensors3-Asus-Z8NA-D6.conf 
sudo cp sensors3-Asus-Z8NA-D6.conf /etc/sensors.d/z8na.conf
wget http://dl.lm-sensors.org/lm-sensors/releases/lm_sensors-3.3.4.tar.bz2
tar jxvf lm_sensors-3.3.4.tar.bz2
cd lm_sensors-3.3.4
sudo make install
sudo sensors-detect
sudo sensors -s
sudo sensors

For what its worth, kmod-w83795 RPMs are available in my repo.


Don't write a program that does $X

A much better idea is to write a library that does $X, then write a front end program that uses that library. Your design will be better. Your program will be more flexible. Code reuse is much easier.
