Mbmon on ALIX 2d13



  • Hi,

    Three days ago just moved my pfsense from an old P-II to an ALIX 2d13 with a 2.5' HDD with full sucess (thanks again MoBo)…. except for mbmon.

    I'm trying to get system info from mbmon (after installing phpsysinfo), and all I get -regarding mbmon data- from the phpsysinfo page (http://192.168.1.1/phpsysinfo/) is:

    File:common_functions.php 
    Line:213 
    Command:/usr/local/bin/mbmon

    Message:No Hardware Monitor found!!
    InitMBInfo: Unknown error: 0
    Return value: 1

    Then I tried to execute mbmon from the command line and got this (-A: for probing all methods, all chips, and setting an extra sensor):

    mbmon -A

    InitMBInfo: Unknown error: 0
    This program needs "setuid root"!!

    su

    mbmon -A

    InitMBInfo: Unknown error: 0
    This program needs "setuid root"!!

    whoami

    root

    mbmon

    No Hardware Monitor found!!
    InitMBInfo: Unknown error: 0

    Am I doing something wrong ?.

    I also have another ALIX (2d3) running Voyager Linux which reads CPU temperature from the i2c bus, but couldn't find such a capacity from pfsense's FreeBSD.

    Do you know if mbmon has the ability to read status data from ALIX ? Any recomendation ?  ???

    Thanks for the help  ;)

    Jose
