    External thermal sensor


    Conditions:
    - System: Ubuntu 12.04 / amd64
    - Motherboard: ASUS crosshair formula V

    Problem:
    Wrong external thermal sensor readings while BIOS readings for the same sensor are OK.

    How to safely access (or make visible in Python) correct values from my external thermal sensor by skipping:
    - BIOS
    - acpi
    - lm-sensors
    - ASUS Customer Service

    If you're running linux wouldn't the sensors be available as devices in /media or in /dev ?

    That's good. Your suggestion brought me there:
    http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/327
    Do you know any other related websites where could I find out how to detect and view output from required sensor connector from /dev (or any other) directory?

    That article might be useful, then again, perhaps not. I use those programs. They report from sensors built into my laptop computer. I would think your external thermometer connects through an USB port, which would be in /media . I don't have the recent experience controlling external devices I'd like to have.
