Fix: HANG on Shutdown issues with XBMC (only use if you having such issues) as always I'm running as root.
ctrl+o to save
Now when you bring up menu and press shutdown system shouldn't hang anymore.

Thanks X3lectric for the clarification, so it seems all the trouble of patching and running lm-sensors is quite useless at the moment. Even with the new sensors-detect.
I was wondering if anybody running an ION based system is getting sensible temperature readings from the cpu?

installed the 1.0.4 nuvoton drivers on ubuntu 9.10 and the remote doesnt work. any ideas?
i followed the instructions, first popup NO/NO, second popup Nuvoton/NO

Not enough information provided!!
I used putty and a few posts back you can see what the output of that is and it works fine for me. A little more info like outputs and what happens when you grep lirc, for how to grep lirc and paste output look at first posts or google.
it would be nice if you use pastebin to post long outputs.
I would like the outputs for lsmod as well
Also to top it all off it would be nice if you provided your environment e.g. I have full ubuntu desktop + xbmc or I have minimal ubuntu install with XBMC
With full desktop vs minimal install the results of certain commands work differently and other things can affect the proper install or patch of files.
I use terminal or putty depends on if I am in front of machine or I am accessing it remotely via LAN/WAN always and log in as root always to configure or patch files within Linux.

I had a look around the hwmon modules and found that w83627ehf.ko is supposed to support the W83667HG IO controller, sadly it does not detect the one inside the asrock 330HT.
Anyway, it is possible to force the module into the kernel by running:
This looks a lot better than the coretemp values...

Ok sorry for the lack of detail
Well first off i have a full ubuntu desktop with XBMC. I dont use putty, and i have only download the archive of the lirc drivers from the asrock website and followed the instructions.
Since my knowledge of ubuntu is only 2-3 days old, can you be more simplistic in what i need to do for you to check?
eg. is grep lirc a command, so i run and show you the output?
Sorry but i am not yet familiar with Ubuntu. I just finished installing them after lots and lots of days with problems as you can see here http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=69136
If you tell me what to do i will do it. i just need to get my remote control working and fix any sound properties i may set wrong.
sorry in advance.

Go to terminal.
Type "dmesg | grep lirc" without the quotes.
Copy the output to pastebin and post the link.
Same with "lsmod"

thanks a lot!
will do when i get home

yea monty0815 that is a a way to get support for that enabled however your "how-to" shows you modprobe the driver. this does not mean it will automatically load on reboot. theoretically presuming you want to reload that line would have to be added to rc.local but I'm unsure how well this will perform as is provided.
Since you went to this length to lookout for this it would be nice to see a detailed how to should be posted by yourself only fair for the n00bs like me
Problem is right there if you read some of my posts and what lm-sensors page says that acpi and hwmon both banging same IO ports can destroy your hw heck don't take my word for it, atm I don't care much either since if machine fries again its still under warranty.
Here is a low down of what lm-sensors project have posted on acpi/hwmon and IO ports issues. there's more on this all over google.
Quote:My sensors have stopped working in kernel 2.6.31 in the mainline 2.6.31 kernel, there is a change which causes hardware monitoring to no longer work on some motherboards. If this is happening for your motherboard, then when the lm_sensors service is starting you are probably getting an error like this:My output on ION HT idle for sensors is on this machine is as follows:
Also the address of the chip which is driver-less is @ address 0x290 how did you get to the conclusion of that forced ID? pls post links also to your "good" research so anyone else can have a read to determine other variables.

I found a patch that once applied may actually add native kernel support for the W83677HG now only have to look how to apply the patch correctly
Things that will be needed to patch is linux-source build essential (more prolly needed)
The Patch can be found here would it not been for monty0815 informative yet little vague post, I wouldn't have used my Master Jedi Google Powers on this...
You can do a
Also there's is no fan speed checking and since all this can be done in bios it makes me think further and proper information must be added otherwise.
First investigation to determine how safe it is to apply this is to find out if ACPI is using the chip IO, if it is not then it should be moderately safe to proceed with this for correct implementation...
I would hate to patch kernel or modprobe force some address which may run avoc with a stable system without having more information, specially I would like to find a stable solution for this.
The idea is generally if proper support is found we can get accurate temps from system and cpu monitor and control fan speeds and overclock the system if any user so chooses straight from terminal or even via python scripting which can be added directly under XBMC.
All that said its good to know monty0815 is curious enough to dig information on this.
I have no knowledge of scripting nor under Linux nor under python nor the time to learn. Though I can do any professional graphical work such python script may require.
