I want to read the CPU temperature value of my ryzen 2600. This askubuntu answer says "just load
it87". But how do I get
it87 installed? I'm running mainline
5.0.0-36-generic so I expect the kernel module is available somewhere as 18.04.1 should have it by default and is packaged with kernel
The github repo is a dead link for me. So I can't just compile it and load it by hand.
My motherboard is a x470 chipset Asus ROG Strix x470-F gaming. It has a IT8665E.
it87 installed in
When I load it using
sudo modprobe it87
modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'it87': No such device
Trying family `ITE'... Yes Found unknown chip with ID 0x8665 (logical device 4 has address 0x290, could be sensors)
and forcing the issue results in:
sudo modprobe --verbose it87 force_id=0x8665 insmod /lib/modules/5.0.0-36-generic/kernel/drivers/hwmon/it87.ko force_id=0x8665 modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'it87': No such device
