Installing lm-sensors

One of my boxes have had some spontaneous shutdowns lately. I thought I could take a look among the gathered data of munin, to see if I could get a hint on what was going on. Turns out I hadn’t installed and configured munin on the this machine on the last re-install. So…

After installing and configuring munin, I thought I’d install lm-sensors to get some moreĀ  mainboard temperature monitoring:

  • Installing:
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors


  • Configuring involves finding out suitable a driver for your mainboards chipset:
sudo sensors-detect

Udev gives network headache

I recently switched mainboard in one of my computers, and suddenly eth0 becomes eth1. This makes my /etc/network/interfaces point to the wrong interface, thus not giving me the correct IP address, which in return makes DNS fail, which in return makes NFS fail… Let’s just say that a plethora of problem arise!

Showmount gives me this error message when I try to list exports on the NFS server:

clnt_create: RPC: Port mapper failure - RPC: Unable to receive
