Hi peoples'

I just installed lm_sensors on by slack box (2.6.0 stable) and when it starts I get the error:
root@linux:~# sensors
Can't access /proc file
Unable to find i2c bus information;
For 2.6 kernels, make sure you have mounted sysfs!
For older kernels, make sure you have done 'modprobe i2c-proc'!

how do I mount "sysfs" I don't think I have one?

Thank You

Become root and create a /sys directory and add following line to /etc/fstab:
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0

Mount it ( mount /sys )
That should do the trick
