Hi everyone

I hope this is the correct forum to report bugs, and that this bug
hasn't been reported already. If it isn't the correct forum, please let
me know where I should report it.

Just downloaded and installed lm_sensors-2.8.7 from source. I've found a
small bug. When I run mkdev.sh, it creates devices named like so :

/dev/i2c-0
/dev/i2c-1
/dev/i2c-2

etc

However, sensors-detect looks for a device named /dev/i2c/0  and can't
find it. This causes sensors-detect to skip the probing of my SMBus Via
Pro adapter, and gives the error :

Can't open /dev/i2c/0

To get around this I hacked sensors-detect and changed the line :

   $dev_i2c = '/dev/i2c/';

to read

   $dev_i2c = '/dev/i2c-';

in subroutine 'initialize_conf' . This solved my problem.

I'll gladly provide more information if necessary. My apologies if this
bug has already been reported.


Regards and best wishes
