1. Hardware Monitor for non-VIA chipsets
Reply to this topic with quote Modify your message
I had noticed that only VIA-chipset based motherboards support Hardware Monitor functions under OS/2 (CPU temperature, motherboard temperature, fan speed etc).
I also found that Linux support the majority of systems using the "lm_sensors" module, which seems to use the I2C bus to comunicate with the hardware and get these informations.
I2C interface for Linux was ported for OS?2 by Stefan Milcke (http://www.nord-com.net/s.milcke/), the LXAPI, for his BTTV project.
I was wondering if someone has any I2C expertise to port lm_sensors to OS/2 using LXAPI. It would be a good adition to the comunity. (^=

(Or anyone knows any other existent solution for nForce and other chipsets?)

I tried to build an OS/2 version of xmbmon, but first i have to learn to use gcc & makefiles, so no success so far

IF ANYONE WITH SOME MORE C-SKILL WANT TO TRY IT WOULD BE GREAT!

xmbmon (->http://freshmeat.net/projects/xmbmon/) is an *nix HW-monitor, supporting recent CPU's & chipsets. It has its OWN smb-driver and porting (in theory) should be quite strait foreward since it talks via OUTB () to the hardware Replacing this with calls to XF86SUP.SYS (and init this) should be all to. There is even a standard VIO-prog to display the results.
I have no real working GCC installation. IS THERE SOMEONE OUT (perfectly having done some XFREE-ports) WHO CAN TRY TO COMPILE XMBMON???
