DietPi CPU temp error on Up Board

(Sean) #1

Hey @Dan_Knight

I’ve installed DietPi_v6.0_NativePC-EFI-x86_64-Stretch on an Up Board.

Kernel version:


I get this error when I check the CPU temp:

Same error whether it’s in powersave mode or performance mode.

Is this a bug or is there something I can do in diet-config to fix this?

It’s the latest 6.17.12 version.

Hi Sean,

I believe the intel CPU uses its own hardware + kernel system for CPU freq, if /sys/devices/system/cpu/intel_pstate/max_perf_pct is supported by kernel, try using “dietpi-config” and “CPU Frequency Limits” under “Performance options”.

In regards to CPU temp, it may be a different thermal zone holds the value, please try pasting

cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp
