Hi @stepe and @manfred_knick
lm_sensors-3.6.0 built without any problems but the collectd would not build properly. It looks like there is a library mismatch between what the latest lm_sensors is using and what the version of collectd that is being used in IPFire is using.
So an updated lm_sensors will not be in Core Update 156.
I am working with the core devs to find out if there is a patch solution to collectd that will enable me to build everything successfully.
Updating collectd is not an easy option as it is used to collect all the data that is then provided to create all the graphs that are produced in IPFire.
The structure of the data collection in the updated collectd changed significantly so updating it would then also require major changes in many parts of IPFire.
Hopefully we will be able to find a simple patch to the existing collectd to make it work with the latest lm_sensors.
Will keep you updated when I know more.
