I've just installed Debian Wheezy 7.5 on a Toshiba Satellite P100 laptop.
By default, X was using the nouveau graphics driver. While this was still installed, I was getting 6 different temperature readings from lm-sensors. Here's an example of the output, I had:
acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +50.0°C (crit = +104.0°C) coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Core 0: +52.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 1: +52.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) lm99-i2c-2-4c Adapter: nouveau-0000:01:00.0-2 temp1: +49.0°C (low = +0.0°C, high = +85.0°C) (crit = +85.0°C, hyst = +75.0°C) temp2: +64.9°C (low = +16.0°C, high = +101.2°C) (crit = +101.0°C, hyst = +91.0°C) nouveau-pci-0100 Adapter: PCI adapter temp1: +39.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +110.0°C)
However, the temperatures were much higher than above. The lm99/nouveau temp2 was hitting 95c while the computer was idle. And some others were in the 60c-70c range. The laptop felt quite hot.
So I then installed the binary nvidia drivers hoping this might lower the temperature of the system. However, now when I look at lm-sensors, I only get three readings:
acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +49.0°C (crit = +104.0°C) coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Core 0: +51.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C) Core 1: +51.0°C (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
I'm concerned that I can't see the extra readings I had before, so I can't be sure the system still isn't running hot.
Anybody got any ideas how I can check, or anything I can look at?
I've tried running the sensors-detect script, it added a couple of modules, but I still only get the three readings.
