xfce-extra/xfce4-sensors- breaks my acpi and hddtemp sensors.
They work with xfce-extra/xfce4-sensors-

Reproducible: Always

It may be hard to reproduce due to different hardware. It is reproducible on the Kohjinsha SH series laptops.

You'll need to provide a lot more information than you have done so far. Your emerge --info is required at the very least. Some build/usage output (error messages) would be very welcome as well.

patch to re-enable refresh_acpi

For some reason the author commented out the call to 'refresh_acpi'. This patch re-enables this function and works for acpi only.

I'm not using hddtemp and therefore can't tell anything about it.
Comment 3 Tim Taubert 2008-04-16 10:25:34 UTC
Oh, my bad. Look at bug #214527. Combine mine and Andy Crook's patch and acpi and hddtemp should work again.
Comment 4 Arthur Spitzer 2008-05-24 16:40:30 UTC

will there be an ebuild with included patches? Would be very nice.

With best regards,

Comment 6 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2008-06-05 12:44:41 UTC
The patch is now removed from -r2, because it breaks xfce4-sensors. It won't start anymore.

can you please try o.10.99.5 from svn and tell me exactly what is failing  and where? See ./configure --help and --enable-debug or similar to get the output. Also include your configuration, i.e. tree /proc/acpi, ls -l `which hddtemp`, and similar.

checked version from svn.
./ --enable-debug:
Build Configuration

Host system:  

The following sensor interfaces will be built into the plugin:
*  libsensors
*  /proc/acpi

Full debug is enabled


Compiled. Installed. Works!
Do you still need the acpi tree etc. ?

Well, closing the bug reports would be enough ;-)
