Description Anton Bolshakov 2005-12-24 21:30:23 UTC
ksensors is a nice front-end to lm_sensors.
It also displays same /proc/* information such as cpuinfo and cpu themperature.
Since lm_sensors doesn't work with ibm thinkpad laptops and even dangerous to use I want to make this optional(disabled if acpi enabled). I also has extended functionality of ksensors to display /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal.

Display more thermal info from: /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal
Comment 2 Stefan Schweizer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-11-20 12:04:28 UTC
can you please submit this patch upstream. It will find its way back into Gentoo then. Thanks
Comment 3 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-09 17:01:18 UTC
As this application is abandoned, resolution upstream is unreasonable. Using bug 173821 as tracker.
Comment 4 Wulf Krueger (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-04-15 02:11:59 UTC
ksensors needs sys-apps/lm_sensors to build correctly:

In file included from lmsensorsdock.h:34,
                 from main.cpp:24:
lmsensors.h:26:29: error: sensors/sensors.h: No such file or directory

Your patch doesn't change that. It may add the desired functionality (which I can't verify) but the DEPEND in your suggested ebuild is wrong. (And the acpi USE flag can't be used for this anyway.)

I've added an "ibmacpi" local USE flag which triggers your patch to be included.

I've just committed ksensors-0.7.3-r1 to CVS.
