Nope. You will need to install lm_sensors and then run sensors-detect, which tells you what chips/bus and modules you have to load. Perhaps it's easier if you tell us what kind of problems you are having with lm_sensors first...

There might be other ways/sensors to get temperature and fan speed in Linux, but this is the only I know about....

Good luck!

Agreed. lm-sensors is the 'standard'.
