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


Hello, 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
# into the kernel, or unavailable, comment out the following line.

# 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.
max6650
# Warning: the required module saa1064 is not currently installed
# on your system. For status of 2.6 kernel ports check
# . If driver is built

# 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.

I ran into a similar issue when the Intel Core Duos came out; the kernel was missing the Coretemp driver and there _was_ no module for it.
Barring making the modules load differently or creating an obscure symlink or something (which I don't think would work with modules anyway, is this even possible?) I would first update to the latest LM_Sensors, then either:
1) Recompile the kernel with support for those sensors,
2) Find a kernel patch if your kernel doesn't have support for those sensors (then repeat #1), or
3) Install a more current kernel, which will likely have the sensor support you need.
You mentioned that it's running on a server, so #3 might not be the most practical way to go, but unfortunately it's probably the most effective in this case. If someone else here has a simpler method then by all means go for it, but I was running a 2.6.18 Fedora machine and Intel 771/775 platforms aren't exactly rare, and it's what I had to do until the appropriate upstream changes were made (2.6.20 IIRC). Good luck-
