thanks... i managed to patch the i2c and lm_sensors properly.. now how do i use them? ( i got the modules install :P )

i read the README and INSTALLs but they never mentioned how to use them

i got gkrellm too, just to see if the lm_sensors would work with it... no luck either :\

anything i missed for configuring it?

from the install file
Using the sensors package
=========================

You can now load the modules by using `modprobe'. For example,
`modprobe i2c-piix4' will load the i2c-piix4 module, and all i2c modules
on which it depends.

You can not use demand-loading; you will have to issue explicit modprobe
instructions.

If you have an older installation, you will probably have to create the
i2c device files in the /dev directory. They are called /dev/i2c-%d,
and are character devices with major device number 89 and minor device
number %d. The script prog/mkdev/mkdev.sh will create the files for you.

There is a special scanning program installed called sensors-detect. It
will scan all available I2C and SMBus adapters for all known devices,
and give you a list of what modules you need to insert. It is written in
Perl, and you will need at least Perl 5.004 to run it succesfully.

If `sensors' returns some error message about not being able to load
libsensors, you have to add the directory in which it is installed
(by default /usr/local/lib) to /etc/ld.so.conf and run `ldconfig'.

You can use the installed sensors program to get a report of all detected
sensor devices. There is also a manual page for this program. Calling
`sensors -s' will set the limits and other configuration settings
specified in /etc/sensors.conf. Again, read the manual pages for more
information.

There are many auxiliary programs not installed. You can find them under
the prog subdirectory. A list can be found in doc/progs.
in other words, use the sensors program.
gkrellm depends on sensors too if I'm right
