lm-sensors "Warning: the required module is not currently installed"


Hello, i'm Bastiaan (PeeCee-BW) and i'm new to this forum.. I've got a problem using lm-sensors and been googeling for this problem 4 day's now.

I did the sensor-detect command and at the end i got the fallowing:
Code:
#----cut here----
# I2C adapter drivers
i2c-savage4
# Chip drivers
# no driver for Smart Battery Charger yet
# Warning: the required module smartbatt is not currently installed
# on your system. For status of 2.6 kernel ports check
# . If driver is built

# Warning: the required module max6650 is not currently installed
# on your system. For status of 2.6 kernel ports check
# . If driver is built
# into the kernel, or unavailable, comment out the following line.

# Warning: the required module saa1064 is not currently installed

# Warning: the required module pca9540 is not currently installed
# on your system. For status of 2.6 kernel ports check
# . If driver is built
# into the kernel, or unavailable, comment out the following line.
pca9540
#----cut here----
I did add them to the /etc/modules and did modprobe but modprobe gives me the error that some modules are not there.

Now my big question is, how do i add the modules that are (as said above) not there?

This is on a IBM e-server with Debian 4 kernel 2.6.18-6-686.

[This post had been posted in the newbie forum, but i found i more in place here, also the forum forsed me to post there as my first post.]

run depmod -a whenever you're adding or messing with module stuff.
the "modules" are the kernel modules installed in /lib/modules/<kernel-version-name>
adding modules that are not there would be done by building a new kernel, and first adding the specified modules in the kernel config. You can go into the kernel src directory, if the kernel source is installed, probably in /usr/src/<kernel-name> and run make gconfig, or make xconfig, or make kconfig, or make menuconfig.
I suspect that whatever stuff you need though, is already there, and installed. Are you using the package manager, kpackage or whatever to install lm-sensors?

Thanks for the help whansard. Your awnser whas as aspected as i whas hoping for an easyer way to do it

But i found out it's no use since lm-sensors does not support IBM. This is because IBM doesend give out any specs about there hardware (damn IBM).

In a mean time i found somthing called "IBM Director 5.10" witch is also for linux. Now i don't realy know what it is yet, but for the ppl who's looking for a link: http://www-304.ibm.com/systems/suppo...andind=5000008
