Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well, er, the error message suggests that you don't have the program /usr/local/bin/sensors. Do you? What happens when you give on the command line /usr/local/bin/sensors ? You should see sensor readings. If not, you'll have to get this program if it's not there, or fix it if it is there but not working. There should also be a file /etc/sensors.conf. The sensors program and an example sensors.conf file are in the lm-sensors distribution.
I know it says I dont have it, I know that much. I dont know why I dont have it, and thats what I cant figure out. It was working before, and now it decides it doesnt want to work after my last compile. Is it better to build support into the kernel for your chipset, or load it as a module?
It might be better to compile separate modules, unless you're sure exactly which ones you need. But what do I know? I get sensor readings, but they're not meaningful. I also get error messages that smbus can't be read and sysfs/procfs can't be written to (but both /sys and /proc are there).
