how to use lm sensors?


I have a karamba theme for monitoring tempurature and what not with lm sensors.
and it doesn't currently display a temp. in the configuration file, it says the following:

#Sensors - To get sensors to work you will need lm-sensors and the necessary
#kernel modules... check the output of 'sensors' for the 'type' field
# adjust 'min' and 'max' depending on sensor

when i run 'sensors' i get:

Can't access procfs/sysfs 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'!

my kernel is 2.6.4-52-default. When i enter mount sysfs i get:

mount: sysfs already mounted or /sys busy

I know that i have the sensors because i can check these temps. and fan speeds in bios.
anyone out there know what's wrong

rus sensors-detect as root.
it will scan for compatable monotoring devices on your moherboard, load the correct drivers if it finds any, and prompt you to edit certain files, mainly /etc/modules.conf.

ok, i've run that and configured. when i reboot it keeps saying:

can access procfs/sysfs for writing
Run as root?

then when i run sensors it gives this one:

so, something is wrong with procfs/sysfs? could it be permissions?

Thanks a lot for the suggestions: I gave up as well and I am now following your advice! :P
mbmon gives me:

Temp.= 255.0, 240.0, 152.0; Rot.= 11250, 135000, 67500
Vcore = 1.38, 3.10; Volt. = 3.25, 5.08, 13.44, -4.56, -0.05

Temp.= 255.0, 240.0, 153.0; Rot.= 11250, 135000, 67500
Vcore = 1.33, 3.09; Volt. = 3.22, 5.11, 13.44, -4.56, -0.05

Temp.= 255.0, 240.0, 153.0; Rot.= 11250, 135000, 67500
Vcore = 1.33, 3.12; Volt. = 3.23, 5.11, 13.44, -4.56, -0.05


Does it mean the connectors are not connected? (I must say I am not sure what to make of this... hehe)

Could be.

some extra high temps and fan rpm's there

Temp.= 35.0, 25.0, 17.0; Rot.= 9507, 4115, 0
Vcore = 1.70, 1.70; Volt. = 3.31, 4.87, 12.04, -11.02, -4.75

Temp.= 35.0, 25.0, 17.0; Rot.= 9507, 4115, 0
Vcore = 1.70, 1.70; Volt. = 3.30, 4.89, 12.04, -11.02, -4.75

thats what I have and I am in celsious for temps.
it is right on track with my bios.My 3rd fan connector is not in use so it says 0.

You may need to reinstall....im not sure why the funky readings.
