Any luck with lm_sensors and nforce4?

Hey guys. Haven't posted here in a while. I've nearly finished redoing my system a la LFS/BLFS. I'm adding some of my own wants and desires now.

My goal was to get lm_sensors to work with my nforce4 chipset. This doesn't seem to be going very well.

I have every possible i2c algorithm module enabled in the kernel config.

root@frozen:~# sensors -s
Can't access procfs/sysfs file
Unable to find i2c bus information;
For 2.6 kernels, make sure you have mounted sysfs and libsensors
was compiled with sysfs support!
For older kernels, make sure you have done 'modprobe i2c-proc'!
root@frozen:~# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
eeprom                  4920  - 
nvidia               4536756  - 
i2c_dev                 6372  - 
i2c_nforce2             5064  - 
root@frozen:~# modprobe i2c_sensors
FATAL: Module i2c_sensors not found.
root@frozen:~# mount | grep sysfs
/sys on /sys type sysfs (rw)
root@frozen:~# uname -r
Sensors-detect only tells me to use 'i2c_dev', 'i2c_nforce2' and 'eeprom'. The i2c website says to modprobe i2c_sensors but as you can see, that module doesn't seem to exist. I searched for it in the kernel menuconfig (under HELP, it lists what the module will be called) but I didn't find it. I have 'i2c-core' built into the kernel.

Anyway, sensors aren't a high priority, but it would be nice to figure this out.

Thanks for your help in advanced.

Sorry, can't help directly (things work with my nForce3 chipset).

Do you know of the lm_sensors mailing list?
