In reference to ticket 1719:

I'm sorry if I'm making a nuisance of myself but I guess I must be being 
obtuse.  The various documentation says that you have to be careful to 
only use certain version of lm_sensors with the various versions of the 
kernel.  I'm using an Asus A7N8X which has a w83l785ts on it, apparently 
the fix came in a version after the one that Mandrake considers to work 
with my kernel.  I'm using 2.6.3-7mdk kernel and 
lm_sensors-2.8.4-2mdk.i586. I got an rpm of 
lm_sensors-2.8.7-4mdk.i586.rpm and it's kicking the procfs/sysfs thing. 
Is my only real solution to upgrade my lm_sensors AND my kernel?

Run as root?
