No Fan speed in lm-sensors or Xsensors since kernel 5.19 update

Hi, I am not able to see CPU and GPU fan speed using lm-sensors or Xsensors since I updated to kernel 5.19.

I was able to view it before 5.19. I also installed Pop!_OS to check if my hardware was at fault but NO. It gave me fan speed readings since Pop!_OS was using 5.18 kernel.

PFB screenshots of sensors and xsensors:
xsensorsno fan speed 5 19

lm-sensors no fan speed 5 19

Kindly let me know how can I fix this / need any info.

Look here:

Thanks for the suggestion. I already tried this. But does not help. My question is In kernel 5.18 it was showing fan speed and since 5.19 it's not What can I do to fix it?

There are various packages around. Also one named lm_sensors. It is kind of hard to say overall what a possible error, or solution could be.

What are your hardware and software specs? And which sensors package are trying to fix here?

Hi @ivanhoe , Thanks for responding.

I m using EndeavourOS KDE (with Nvidia drivers) latest Update.

My System is
Model: Asus Tuf A17,
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 4600H,
GPU: Nvidia 1650,
RAM: 32 GB
Storage: 500 GB SM Evo 970 Plus

I just want the FAN RPM to show. It shows on Linux Kernel 5.18 but not on 5.19.

I also checked with Windows 11. The sensor for that works. BUT not in Linux kernel 5.19

That’d probably be a kernel bug/regression. You should file it or find one just like it and watch it. Or live with it.

Alternatives, maybe install linux-lts or linux-zen kernels.

Hi yup it was a kernel bug. I re-installed EOS KDE (single boot) from scratch and I can now see CPU Fan speed again in sensors output.
