Also, the .install file should contain instructions on reloading the thinkpad_acpi module (or reboot if not possible).

Braces are NOT quotes, this will break when pkgdir contains spaces. srcdir is also a noop (see Creating packages on the wiki), and .install files don't have to be included in the source array.

@smldis: not sure if this is a good solution, but I switched to using /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp after having similar issues (thinkfan failing to read /sys/devices/platform/coretemp.0/hwmon/...)

I have the problem with thinkfan, that after resuming from suspend, thinkfan quits because a sensor has vanished.

The log says:
A sensor has vanished! Exiting since there's no safe way of handling this.

If I restart the thinkfan systemd service, it works properly again.

Any suggestions how to solve this?

Ok, I do Not want To waste our time on tricks, I just published my solution for other people here.
Thanks for your effort.

@smldis, thx for your report, I'll try thinkpad_hwmon asap and try to find a solution.

I don't use lm-sensors. My driver interface is thinkpad_hwmon. Thank you

notizblock commented on 2014-10-07 19:34

@smldis have you configured lm-sensors? Does it start properly, if you start it manually?

smldis commented on 2014-10-07 08:11

Hi,
Not loading at start here, Also lm-sensors fails to load with this .service
My working setup on a thinkpad t500 is:
