I have a Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H motherboard and Phenom II X6 in my desktop computer, and it's all working well, except that Ubuntu 10.10 doesn't seem to detect any ACPI support at all: it can't suspend, and it can't measure its internal temperatures. I would have thought a new device like this ought to have pretty pervasive ACPI support?

  • I'd still like to get suspend/resume working, but I guess that's totally separate from thermal monitoring? – poolie Nov 10 '10 at 3:50
  • You are right! But what happens when you suspend? Do you have error message? – Extender Nov 10 '10 at 3:52
  • Suspend problems often connected to video cards and depends on drivers (especially proprietary ATI drivers) – Extender Nov 10 '10 at 3:55
  • I'll file a separate question for the suspend/resume thing, with more details. Thanks for your help. – poolie Nov 10 '10 at 4:04
  • question 12558 has more information about suspend/resume – poolie Nov 10 '10 at 20:36

For temperatures, you must install lm-sensors package

sudo apt-get install lm-sensors

Then follow this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SensorInstallHowto

  • Thanks, that fixed it - I had installed lm-sensors but I hadn't run sensors-detect. – poolie Nov 10 '10 at 3:45
