To clarify my previous post:
Instead of issuing the modprobe command you can simply go ahead and add the correct line to /etc/modules or issue this command as root:
You can find the chip_id that I am forcing onto the driver in the linux sources at drivers/hwmon/w83627ehf.c:
As far as I'm concerned the entry in the lm-sensors FAQ does not bother me, as I am running the stock karmic kernel (2.6.31-17). the issue seems to affect 2.6.30 and below.
Also I don't think that you have to patch the module, support for this specific chip has been added quite some time ago.
Btw thanks for this link http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.sensors/21091
I'll try to figure out which temperatures are actually useful, but after a first test, all 3 temp readings seem to change during a small stress test.

ok your drivers has not been properly installed, if you were following the read me that comes with the drivers though it shouldnt differ much try it with terminal.
Again you must do sudo su and enter your password.
Follow this post exactly.... except the dpkg line
only difference is the driver version.
so you do
dpkg -i lirc-nct677x-1.0.4-ubuntu9.10.deb
now grep lirc again and do lsmod
on grep lirc you should read
and lsmod should show the driver on output... Which on your current is missing, whe you start XBMC the remote should work if not you have a bad install and lirc is not working ok.
gave up on IR - dlbogdan - 2010-02-03 10:41
Finally I gave up on the IR part of the Asrock (simply too picky about range and angle, too slow with the harmony... gave me a headache) and bought a Sony PS3 Bluetooth Remote. Got it working perfectly (extremely responsive and a 4 story building range! ) with this : http://code.google.com/p/bdremote-ng/downloads/list
The only problem is waking up from suspend with the bluetooth remote.

first of all would like to thank you for this wonderful guide. i just have queston regarding sensor on your #2 post. would this instruction fit my ion foxconn nt-330i? or is this just for asrock ion 330? thanks in advance

Im concerned because the issues which should have been resolved have really not with the kernel 2.6.31-xx nnot even with the very latest 2.6.32 unless your compiling it yourselves with the proposed solution.

Whatever kernel you guys use while the result of
However despite alarm bells ringing, I think this is indeed good progress and valuable posts and contributions to this topic and other users for that thank you monty0815 and andyblac

no idea personally about bluetooth remotes and no issues with angles or distance within reason.
Did you have issues with cold start (start from total shutdown) with the asrock remote? If the answer is yes you may have a bummed automatic voltage regulator which can account for some other remote issues. Though Asrock 1st line support will try fob off and dismiss problems.
Usual response is that they installed 9.10 tested it on their systems and found no issues.
They ignore the fact most ppl are installing minimal ubuntu and do not take that into consideration though they should. Also I doubt they actually test anything since it's nuvoton who is doing the testing for them and the machines are or have had repairs done to fix poor hardware issues.
Personally I had 2 other HT's and both were suffering from that now on my 3rd it finally seems a better part as resolved this issue.
BoyBastos Wrote:hi X3lectric,
Yes that is system independent as long as your system relies on coretemp and complains it cant be inserted so compiling is a solution.
it would be worth you looking closer at your hardware and following what is going on in these latest posts regarding temps. Specially because coretemp is not accurate due to various issues.
if you want to know how close your system is in relation to a ION HT (which I'm willing to bet my scrotum is manufactured by Pegatron even if yours is foxconn and this one is Asrock) pastebin the outputs of this you may need to install any commands not found. In meanwhile I will do same for comparison with yours and other systems.
One thing that must be kept in mind is that these ION platforms are relatively new and some or other parts may not be yet fully supported by Linux. That doesn't mean it cant be fixed whatever is not working quite right. This is the main purpose of this Topic.

Thanks for your quick reply X3lectric.
yes my system relies on coretemp as i have it default on screenlet.
here is the pastebin of my hardware :
One last thing mate, i am planning to get a usb ir receiver for remote in xbmc. any recommendation that is compatible with ubuntu 9.10? i just need a receiver as i have a harmony remote ready on my home theater.

Any MCE remote should work ok I have a spare one going for £20 + shipping just used once for testing.
It's that one there only they come in black not silver. if your interested drop a pm. Im in UK BTW.
On first look it seems your system is sporting pretty much same components. What happens when you do
dmesg | grep SMB
