I have not had success getting lm-sensors to detect the cpu on Ubuntu.

It is generally safe and recommended to accept the default answers to all questions, unless you know what you're doing. Some south bridges, CPUs or memory controllers contain embedded sensors. Do you want to scan for them? This is totally safe. (YES/no): modprobe: FATAL: Module cpuid not found in directory /lib/modules/4.4.52-armada-17.10.3-g44275f8 Failed to load module cpuid.

This is the most risky part, and while it works reasonably well on most systems, it has been reported to cause trouble on some systems. Do you want to probe the I2C/SMBus adapters now? (YES/no): Sorry, no supported PCI bus adapters found. Next adapter: pxa_i2c-i2c (i2c-0) Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): Next adapter: pxa_i2c-i2c (i2c-1) Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): no Sorry, no sensors were detected. Either your system has no sensors, or they are not supported, or they are connected to an I2C or SMBus adapter that is not supported. If you find out what chips are on your board, check http://www.lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices for driver status.
Is the kernel missing CONFIG_THERMAL and CONFIG_HWMON modules in the default build?
I just need to see the temperature output while running multiple packages.
Any work around or advice?
