5.171. lm_sensors

Updated lm_sensors packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The lm_sensors packages provide a set of modules for general SMBus access and hardware monitoring.

Bug Fixes

BZ#610000, BZ#623587
Prior to this update, the sensors-detect script did not detect all GenuineIntel CPUs. As a consequence, lm_sensors did not load coretemp module automatically. This update uses a more generic detection for Intel CPUs. Now, the coretemp module is loaded as expected.
Prior to this update, the sensors-detect script reported an error when running without user-defined input. This behavior had no impact on the function but could confuse users. This update modifies the underlying code to allow for the sensors-detect script to run without user.
All users of lm_sensors are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
