I'm trying to set it up so that gkrellm can detect my cpu and motherboard temps however whenever I run /usr/sbin/sensors-detect I get the following error: Couldn't open /proc/bus/i2c?!? at /usr/sbin/sensors-detect line 2970, <STDIN> line 3.
I tried to install the i2c-2.8.0 module but it didn't do any good. I'm running redhat 9 with the 2.4.20-8 kernel. I amy be installing the module incorrectly as I'm still a newbie. Thanks for any help you can give me.

What you want to do is:

modprobe i2c-proc
Or.. I'm not sure if you need the - or a _ so if that doesn't work do:
modprobe i2c_proc

It loads the part that makes that file
