I'm curious about this too. If I don't need it then I'd rather not install it. I like to keep third-party kexts to a minimum.


The ACPISensors.kext depends on the ACPI device entry within the DSDT. It is optionally used for the otherwise unsupported Super I/O controller chipsets.
So, if your Super I/O chip is fully supported and functional, the ACPISensors.kext is unnecessary,

just test it out yourself by booting with the kext and without it. the hwmonitor app will tell you whether you're seeing more sensors or not, and then you can decide.

I removed it last night and everything looked the same in HWMonitor and iStat Menus. So I guess I don't need it after all. My system log shows "SuperIODevice: found Nuvoton NCT6776F" so it must be supported by MotherboardSensors.kext

Seems you hardware is unsupported.

Sorry, but I have no idea what's the chip is on you motherboard.

It's easy - just remove INT3F0D from the project (I believe I've seen just one person having a SuperIO with such an ID and it gives absolutely nothing, just PCH and CPU Package temps with is practically useless) and you won't find people constantly reporting this. Because even if the machine has, say a Nuovoton chip user will still get some errors.
With the addition of INT3F0D into INT340ESensors it now tries to attach to a CWDT device found on most SNB/IVB motherboards/laptops since the device has the same EISA but has nothing to do with monitoring.


                Device (CWDT)
                {

I can solve this problem without restricting some people from monitoring their PCH and CPU temps. Maybe I'll update ACPISensors later.

I am not develop plugins, only port some working code from windows and linux from other developers and maintain it.

decipher your registers/SMBUS output and make use of APCISensors. That is what I'm doing and it's pretty cool if you ask me.

my acpi tables does contain EC and no data for using acpisensors :(
you can see my tables on my topic

so is the latest lunix kernel 3.6 rc6
or lm-sensors contain something useful for me ? :worried_anim:

When updating I always (feel the) need to go back to change this key in the info.plist
	 <key>REV </key>
	 <array>
	 <string>{rev</string>
	 <data>
	 ATkPAAAR
	 </data>
	 </array>

and also
<key>smc-compatible</key>
<string>smc-thurley</string>

I change to ATkPAAAR because it is closer match with a real MacPro5,1, not sure where I picked that up, but does it matter to the OS? or is it just cosmetic for System Profiler?

If it is a recommended change, it'd be helpful to have options in the installer based on the system users are emulating. Not sure how much research it would take, but I wonder how many people change this?

After installing this I get a kernel panic immediately following boot, involving the kexts installed and their dependencies. What files must I remove in order to restore my install to operational status?

Are you running Kext Utility after installing and before rebooting (I install manually so always do this)?
