lm_sensors - help with install?

Hi guys,

I got a little problem installing lm sensors on my box - it's Mandrake 9.1 (2.4.21-0.13mdk). I think they should already be installed, since mdk comes with a program called ksim.

I installed superkaramba (very important thing to do ) and the t-mon theme, to have readout form my cpu and fan sensors - but - guess what - it does not work. So I think I have to install those lm_sensors.

Installation instructions from lm_sensors left me with a big question mark over my head - since being a real newbie is hard in linux-world . So I searched the web and found out, that there have to be two symlinks, /usr/include/linux and /usr/include/asm for the installation to work. Well - they are not there. So - actually I am able to create a symlink (or at least I think I am ) but I do not know where they have to point to. And cause of that all things like make and make install produce endless warnings and error messages.

Could anybody help me whith this prob please?

I hope my post contains the information u guys need to help.

Thanks in advance,
