hi,
I have a problem with lm_sensors. Maybe it is easy for you to solve it, 
but be assured that I´ve tried anything I know before contacting you guys.
After successfully compiling and installing i2c and lm_sensors with no 
error messages at all (even all modules seem to be loaded correctly), I 
get this message whenever I make "sensors -s":    No sensors found!
Following the output according your guideline for reporting problems:

 We can start with probing for (PCI) I2C or SMBus adapters.
 You do not need any special privileges for this.
 Do you want to probe now? (YES/no):
Probing for PCI bus adapters...
Use driver `i2c-viapro' for device 00:11.0: VIA Technologies VT8233 
VLink South Bridge
Probe succesfully concluded.

 We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
Load `i2c-viapro' (say NO if built into your kernel)? (YES/no):
Module loaded succesfully.
 Do you now want to be prompted for non-detectable adapters? (yes/NO):
 To continue, we need module `i2c-dev' to be loaded.
 If it is built-in into your kernel, you can safely skip this.
 i2c-dev is not loaded. Do you want to load it now? (YES/no):
 Module loaded succesfully.

 We are now going to do the adapter probings. Some adapters may hang halfway
 through; we can't really help that. Also, some chips will be double 
detected;
 we choose the one with the highest confidence value in that case.
 If you found that the adapter hung after probing a certain address, you can
 specify that address to remain unprobed. That often
 includes address 0x69 (clock chip).

Next adapter: SMBus Via Pro adapter at e800 (Non-I2C SMBus adapter)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively):

 Some chips are also accessible through the ISA bus. ISA probes are
 typically a bit more dangerous, as we have to write to I/O ports to do
 this.  Do you want to scan the ISA bus? (YES/no):
no
Now follows a summary of the probes I have just done.
 Just press ENTER to continue:

Driver `w83781d' (should be inserted):
  Detects correctly:
  * Bus `SMBus Via Pro adapter at e800' (Non-I2C SMBus adapter)
    Busdriver `i2c-viapro', I2C address 0x2d (and 0x48 0x49)
    Chip `Asus AS99127F' (confidence: 8)

Driver `pcf8591' (may not be inserted):
  Misdetects:
  * Bus `SMBus Via Pro adapter at e800' (Non-I2C SMBus adapter)
    Busdriver `i2c-viapro', I2C address 0x48
    Chip `Philips Semiconductors PCF8591' (confidence: 1)
  * Bus `SMBus Via Pro adapter at e800' (Non-I2C SMBus adapter)
    Busdriver `i2c-viapro', I2C address 0x49
    Chip `Philips Semiconductors PCF8591' (confidence: 1)


 I will now generate the commands needed to load the I2C modules.
 Sometimes, a chip is available both through the ISA bus and an I2C bus.
 ISA bus access is faster, but you need to load an additional driver module
 for it. If you have the choice, do you want to use the ISA bus or the
 I2C/SMBus (ISA/smbus)?
smbus
WARNING! If you have some things built into your kernel, the
below list will contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones!
To load everything that is needed, add this to some /etc/rc* file:

#----cut here----
# I2C adapter drivers
modprobe i2c-viapro
# I2C chip drivers
modprobe w83781d
#----cut here----

To make the sensors modules behave correctly, add these lines to either
/etc/modules.conf or /etc/conf.modules:

#----cut here----
# I2C module options
alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
#----cut here----

as far as I can determine I have no bus problem, for any modprobes would 
go through, the only "error" I have at all is the one mentioned above. I 
didn´t configure /etc/sensors.conf so perhaps it´s only some configuring 
(but seriously I didn´t find any docs on your web page). My Motherboard 
data:
Asus A7V266
VIA VT8233 Southbridge
Asus 99127F is the Chip (module i2c-viapro and w83781d)
Kernel 2.4.19-4GB
lmsensors version 2.7.0 (downloaded and installed today)

thank you very much for your help in advance
regards
Stephan
