I want to monitor the fans in my HTPC due to a recent and inexplicable temperature increase of 5+ degrees C. Package 'lm-sensors' does not detect fan sensors. After some investigation I found there are drivers available for Nuvoton chip in my mobo Z87 PRO:


When making/compiling I get the following error:

~/Z87 Drivers/nct6775-master$ sudo make
**arch/x86/Makefile:136: CONFIG_X86_X32 enabled but no binutils support
Makefile:652: Cannot use CONFIG_CC_STACKPROTECTOR_REGULAR: -fstack-        protector not supported by compiler
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'Drivers/nct6775-master'.  Stop.
Makefile:30: recipe for target 'modules' failed
make: *** [modules] Error 2**
~/Z87 Drivers/nct6775-master$ 

Any ideas ?

Thanks a lot.

  • WOW WOW WOW a 'space' in the folder name caused that mess ! ! ! ! ! ! – emare Apr 8 '15 at 14:31

I suggest the following sequence:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
cd ~/Z87\ Drivers/nct6775-master
make clean
sudo make install
