Description

Name: it87
Homepage: https://github.com/groeck/it87
Why should this be included in the repository? Currently it's not possible to check fan speed or temperatures on Solus with recent ASUS/Gigabyte boards.
Is it Open Source GPL2+
How many users do you anticipate will use this software? Probably something like 1% of users.
Link to source tarball/zip file https://github.com/groeck/it87/archive/v1.0.tar.gz (it's better to use commits because there was many fixes since)

It's kernel module so it does require frequent rebuilds (other distro use DKMS) and I'm not sure if Solus wants to go this way.
Since Linux 4.15 it's possible to see Ryzen temps OOTB, so it's mostly beneficial to linux-lts users.

Why are you using linux-lts with a modern motherboard?

I'm using linux-current but created this task before 4.15 hit repos.
Now when 4.15 doesn't cause problems anymore lts users could switch.

Having working fan sensors would be nice but it's not that big deal.

AFAIK there is no way to gracefully handle additional modules on Solus so this can be closed.

No worries :) We can handle the extra modules. There's just no sense including another one if it is only needed for an older kernel that will most likely be updated sometime this year to a different LTS release. Thanks for taking the time to respond!

only needed for an older kernel

I think I wasn't clear enough, 4.15 added only temperature sensors inside CPU. Sensors for fans, pumps and other things provided by lm-sensors won't work but like I said earlier it's not big deal (maybe except those who overclock a lot).

Oh. Yeah, that's not how I interpreted it at all. Sorry!

The project has been abandoned, if somebody wants motherboard with nice Linux support AsRock seems the only way.
