    I wonder if anyone owning a Supermicro H8QGI+-F mobo or similar has had any luck running SuperDoctor II (Linux).

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and have been unable to get it to run using the quickinstall script.
    It keeps stopping saying it can't find the liblinc.so.1 library.

    I've tried searching for this library but it doesn't seem to be part of 12.04.

    I'm using the 3.2.0-27-generic kernel

    Any thoughts ?

    Any other program (Linux) that will display temps across 32 cores ?

    I'm not very good with Linux but would really like to get this program running. :wallbash:

    Thanks for any help ( Info and photos of my new build later in the week - hopefully :lol:)

    I didn't put SuperDoctor on my 4P - I just use 'psensors' to monitor temps which you should be able to get from the Software Centre (or else install synaptic package manager (sudo apt-get install synaptic) and search for it within there)).

    Thanks Doc, I've got psensors running but it only displays the temps of 8 cores (presumably No 1 processor).

    How do you manage to display the rest of the cores ?

    I'm using Ubuntu 12.04

    @One_Box: As I understand it, the Opteron K10 architecture has one thermal sensor per package, and the Magny Cours CPU's effectively have two packages per processor, so for a 4P system you get 8 temps.

    @ Doc : - What a revelation :wallbash:

    I thought AMD was the same as Intel in respect of thermal sensors ie one per core.

    At least I don't have to change my distro now :thumb:

    I managed to solve the problem quite easily in the end by Installing IPMI viewer on my Win 7 machine. I then set up a static IP address for the monitoring network socket in the H8QGi+-F bios. After configuring IPMI viwer, I'm able to see all the processor temps, voltages and fan speeds of my linux box generated by the BMC chip remotely on my Win 7 box. As an added bonus I can start up or shut down the machine remotely as well - result :D

    I uninstalled lm-sensors (to prevent conflict with the BMC chip) and made the necessary changes in the Win 7 firewall . I still run psensor on my linux machine for local monitoring.

    That's interesting. Can you confirm that the Linux version only monitors temps/speeds etc, as I think the Windows version can also make adjustments?

    Sorry Doc, I've only used the Windows version of IPMI viewer to remotely monitor my 4P Linux box. The Linux version just comes as a binary file and due to my experience with SDII I haven't tried it :grr:

    How easy was it to setup IPMI?

    Would I need to forward any ports?


    There is an IPMI app for IOS. Free and £2.99. :geek:

    Doesn't IPMI run in a browser - in which case there's not really anything to set up??
    Perhaps I'm thinking of the remote monitoring .....

    I think it's enabled by default.

    You will need to set up a static IP address for the IPMI ethernet socket in the bios (see my earlier post in this thread).

    I downloaded the latest version of IPMI viewer from the Supermicro site, there is a pictoral guide to setting up which even I managed :lol:

    Lol.

    It was all set to go.


    For extranet I needed to set some port forwarding and to set the router to permanently set the ip to the mac address.msaved me faffing with static ip address in bios.


    I can now browse info over the web.

    Still to try the software though.
