My 350 won't let me take it's temperature
October 31, 2007 8:03 PM   Subscribe

Another longshot hardware question, but not the wood table kind: I have an OLD Dell PowerEdge 350. I'm running OpenSUSE 10.3. I'd like to monitor system stats like processor temperature and drive status via the normal IPMI drivers. This should be possible; I can get it working on a 1650 using the drivers from Dell's linux website. It doesn't mention the 350 anywhere. Ideas?

lm-sensors, while a bit hard to get going, will get you at least the processor temperature.

Actually, lm-sensors says it can't pick up any sensors. And modprobing the ipmi drivers that normally would work spits out a bunch of errors into the kernel.
