I want to look for kernel support for this chip. May You be so kind and forward me datasheet for NCT6775F ?
Thx in advance !

How to find the driver for 2.6.37 - lachmac - 2011-01-30 21:32
I am trying to figure out where to find the drivers for 2.6.37, I feel like I am missing something. I upgraded Ubuntu 10.10 to kernel 2.6.37, what do I do next?
vikjon0 Wrote:Ok, I have now tested. 2.6.35 does not work with the remote out of the box the way 2.6.37 does. I'm sure it is possible to get it work but the drivers for 330HT is not included.

I think there is support for this device already.
Look at this URL previously posted in this thread.
I just now downloaded a 2.6.38-rc and looking in linux-2.6.38-rc3/drivers/media/rc I can find nuvoton-cir.c.
Edit: Actually also in stable 2.6.37..

I have gone the fast way. I installed ubuntu 10.10, which came with version 2.6.35-22. Then I installed the drivers for ubuntu 10.10 from the asrock website as they said, and the remote is working fine.
Last step: I uninstall the packages linux-generic, linux-image-generic and linux-headers-generics, so prevent the kernel being upgraded.. The asrock with the 2.6.35-22 kernel works perfectly for me, and I have no security concerns, so I'll just stay with this kernel, no worries.

The NCT6775F is not just for CIR operation with appropriate drivers It also monitors and reports temperatures and fan speeds.
While it worst mentioning not everyone wants to be on cutting edge for everything, I for one and many along with me rather have a stable install and XBMC is barely works really bad normally on karmic (XBMClive) barely scratching Lucid and never mind maverick.
Posting facts that have no bearing on the long list of karmic/lucid users,
I would suggest perhaps post a patch for earlier kernels that also supports lm-sensors which to this date goes unsupported by lm sensors project.
Reminding again this is a multifunction chip that does more then CIR.
Which escapes many peoples mind on the importance of this fact.

Maverick isn't cutting edge, released 10/10 2010. I'm using it since a couple of months and it's extremely stable, along with drivers provided by Asrock. Just stay clear of updating your kernel because the Asrock drivers are tightly bound to the kernel version. My XBMC has been running for these months without interruptions.
That this chip does other things than being a CIR is not important at all for most people, why do you need hardware monitoring? Pretty much just for "geeks". With normal usage you don't need to monitor fan RPMs, CPU temperature etc.
Ubuntu Natty 11.04 will be released 28/4 2011 and will have support for this chipset out-of-the-box. No more hassle..
One could also use XBMCfreak live cd which will probably also "just work".

I am a geek and I want hardware monitoring and control... Do you have a problem with this?
I Beg to differ on your poorly and malformed opinions, which are based on nothing but your personal opinion, you contribute 0 to any problems related to XBMC issues on here. you only use others work and offer nothing in return of any value whatsoever.
While mine are based on experience developing and maintaining a script known as XCI (XBMC complete installer including ppa builds and other work) and all my users and other users want and USE this feature for quite a long time now.
My experience installing XBMC and configuring ION boxes is second to none here on these forums. As well as fixing your so called problems with Asrock drivers amongst ther things, I have typed How-tos in excess over 60k characters for the ION boxes here besides all other work, what have you done, pray tell.
I help Other users FACT.
You on the other hand appear once in a awhile to spew nothing that is worth the read, I thought I would reply to set your ignorant comments straight.
Go back to Ubuntu Forums where you are ignored. which is what I should have done.

I would be interest in Lucid and Karmic patches for both CIR and system temperatures monitoring as well as fan reporting and control which this chip supports in abundance. ATM I have a workaround implemented to extract the sensors information form chip, but unfortunately cannot control system fans because my skills are limited. But temperature reports are 100% accurate vs coretemp which reports - 20C if not more.
LM-sensors project so far have done little on this chip for the hardware monitoring features, they require a borad donation which I cannot afford atm.
The Drivers will be included on lirc soon enough, if you find OpenelecTV he has donated a board to lirc developers and works as been done regrading the Asrock HT....
I will monitor this thread for useful contributions only form now on from yourself as you seem to be a like-minded person and understand the concept of giving and taking.
Regards, please keep me updated via PM if necessary.

You should try to get the sand out of your vagina and see if that might help you.
