lm_sensors is a free and open-source application that provides tools and drivers for monitoring temperatures, voltage, and fans. This document explains how to install, configure, and use lm_sensors.


root # emerge lm_sensors


The lm_sensors service needs configuration in the /etc/conf.d/lm_sensors file, which doesn't exists by default and can be generated by running the sensors-detect tool.

root # sensors-detect

This tool will try to identify the kernel's modules needed by sensors and then place them into configuration file /etc/conf.d/lm_sensors to be loaded/unloaded when the service starts/stops.


When some of these modules are loaded (e.g. from /etc/conf.d/modules or manually), sensors-detect can skip adding them into configuration file and service will not start them with next system (re)start.
