Here's a note from Arima where they say that 2.7.0 works while newer versions don't.  I haven't yet tried it.

Dear Marc,

We tried lm_sensors 2.7.0, 2.8.0 and 2.8.1,
but only 2.7.0 could work.
Our software engineer still look for the solution of the 2.8.x.
Please used lm_sensors 2.7.0 now.
Vaughn already mailed the information to Bob and John.

Paul,

Paul Shay suggested that I contact you for technical support.  I am evaluating an Arima HDAMA motherboard for use in Linux compute clusters.  I would like to be able to monitor temperatures and fan speeds.  Reading the motherboard documentation, I understand that there is an adm1026 chip on the board.  I have tried to use the lm_sensors (http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/index.html) package but have so far been unsuccessful.  It is able to detect the AMD 8111 and 756 chips, but it can not find the adm1026 chip.  

Can you give me any suggestions for hardware monitoring under Linux?  Have you been able to make the lm_sensors package work for you?  Or is there another package that I should use instead?

The detailed output of sensors-detect is attached below.  Please let me know if you need any more information to help me diagnose this problem.

Thanks for your help.

gb0008:/tmp/marc/lm_sensors-2.8.1 # prog/detect/sensors-detect

This program will help you determine which I2C/SMBus modules you need to
load to use lm_sensors most effectively. You need to have i2c and
lm_sensors installed before running this program.
Also, you need to be `root', or at least have access to the /dev/i2c-*
files, for most things.
If you have patched your kernel and have some drivers built-in, you can
safely answer NO if asked to load some modules. In this case, things may
seem a bit confusing, but they will still work.

 BIOS vendor (ACPI): PTLTD
 System vendor (DMI): AMD
 BIOS version (DMI): PMLC00-7
 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-amd8111' for device 00:07.2: AMD-8111 SMBus 2.0
Use driver `i2c-amd756' for device 00:07.3: AMD-8111 ACPI
Probe succesfully concluded.

 We will now try to load each adapter module in turn.
Load `i2c-amd8111' (say NO if built into your kernel)? (YES/no):
Module loaded succesfully.
Load `i2c-amd756' (say NO if built into your kernel)? (YES/no):
/lib/modules/2.4.19MARipmi-NUMA/kernel/drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-amd756.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.19MARipmi-NUMA/kernel/drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-amd756.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.19MARipmi-NUMA/kernel/drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-amd756.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.19MARipmi-NUMA/kernel/drivers/i2c/busses/i2c-amd756.o: insmod i2c-amd756 failed
Loading failed... skipping.
 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: SMBus2 AMD8111 adapter at 1000 (Non-I2C SMBus 2.0 adapter)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively):
Client found at address 0x08

 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):
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78'
  Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM78-J'
  Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `National Semiconductor LM79'
  Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `Winbond W83781D'
  Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `Winbond W83782D'
  Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `Winbond W83627HF'
  Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `Winbond W83697HF'
  Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `Silicon Integrated Systems SIS5595'
  Trying general detect... Failed!
Probing for `VIA Technologies VT82C686 Integrated Sensors'
  Trying general detect... Failed!
Probing for `VIA Technologies VT8231 Integrated Sensors'
  Trying general detect... Failed!
Probing for `ITE IT8705F / IT8712F / SiS 950'
  Trying address 0x0290... Failed!
Probing for `IPMI BMC KCS'
  Trying address 0x0ca0... Failed!
Probing for `IPMI BMC SMIC'
  Trying address 0x0ca8... Failed!

 Some Super I/O chips may also contain sensors. Super I/O probes are
 typically a bit more dangerous, as we have to write to I/O ports to do
 this.  Do you want to scan for Super I/O sensors? (YES/no):
Probing for `SMSC 47M10x Super IO Fan Sensors'
  Failed! (0xe1)
Probing for `SMSC 47M14x Super IO Fan Sensors'
  Failed! (0xe1)
Probing for `VT1211 Super IO Sensors'
  Failed! (0xe1)
Probing for `Winbond W83627HF Super IO Sensors'
  Failed! (0xe1)
Probing for `Winbond W83627THF Super IO Sensors'
  Failed! (0xe1)
Probing for `Winbond W83697HF Super IO Sensors'
  Failed! (0xe1)

 Sorry, no chips were detected.
 Either your sensors are not supported, or they are
 connected to an I2C bus adapter that we do not support.
 See doc/FAQ, doc/lm_sensors-FAQ.html, or
 http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/cvs/lm_sensors2/doc/lm_sensors-FAQ.html
 (FAQ #4.24.3) for further information.
 If you find out what chips are on your board, see
 http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/newdrivers.html for driver status.
