Dell Inspiron 6000 - kubuntu and lm-sensors

Hi and thanks in advance for reading this post
I bought a laptop Dell Inspiron 6000 with 1 gb ram and I've installed Kubuntu 7.04. After this I've installed lm-sensors, and ksensors then I run
$ sudo sensors-detect
and I put YES to all options

but at the end the script say :

Sorry, no sensors were detected.
Either your sensors are not supported, or they are connected to an
I2C or SMBus adapter that is not supported. See doc/FAQ,
doc/lm_sensors-FAQ.html or
(FAQ #4.24.3) for further information.
If you find out what chips are on your board, check for driver status.

This laptop don't have sensors?
where can I find a guide or tutorial for making this application work? in google I found other guides but don't say anything about sensors in this laptop hardware.

sorry for mi English... but I speak Spanish

I don't know about that specific model, but Dell computers often don't work with lm-sensors. I have a GX 280 at work, which has some kind of sensors in it, but lm-sensors can't read them because Dell refuse to release the spec. It's likely that's the case with your laptop too.


dell, inspiron, lmsensors
