I am running Linux Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on my ASUS Crosshair VIII (w/ Wi-Fi) and an EVGA RTX 3080-Ti FTW3 Ultra GPU. I do not have full use of the sensor readings when I use GKrellM and Kenmonitor. So, I wanted to upgrade, though possibly stay with Ubuntu 20.04.
A friend suggested I go to Kernel 6.1.4, up from Kernel 515, because the ‘ec-sensors’ are included in the new kernel and I won’t need to mess around with getting the sensor readings to work.
Well, I did as he suggested and now I’m in a pickle. I do not have my GPU showing up, I DO have Kernel 6.1.4 show up when I run ‘uname -mrs’ in a terminal window, but I DO NOT have Kernel 6.1.4 show up when I run ‘dkms status’. I still showing Kernel 5.15.
I’ve run a few other programs, and none of them seem to help. I can let you know what they are and show you the results if you want, but for now I think this will do.
So, what would you do? Should I stay with Kernel 5.15 and Ubuntu 20.04 and deal with messing with ‘ec-sensors’? Or should I upgrade my system to Ubuntu 22.04 and Kernel 6.1.4 so I have full use of ‘ec-sensors’? Or… would you do something different?
Thanks in advance!
