This is a slim barebone-PC: MSI Hermes 845GV-Lite

The manual says that there is SMSC LPC47M133-NC, which is also identified by sensors-detect,
but it doesn't say anything about the LM86.

I haven't got the time right now to open the chassis and check if there really is LM86 installed,
but when I do, I will send you a message.

I haven't had any problems since installing the lm90 module.

The only funny thing is that KSensors doesn't show any of the temperature while 
sensors and gkrellm (kind of an infobar) do.

Unfortunately I am using debian testing as binary only, so that might be hard, but I will give it a try.

Ole hyvä :)
