Hi Homer:

What a small world, eh?

Assuming I can actually help you, will you give me a break on my
email account? ;)

That version of sensors is almost 3 years old, just FYI.

That's pretty much the answer for the fans...


But for the temp sensors, you'll probably  need to get an updated version of
our software - the xeontemp driver wasn't added until (I think) 2.8.something
and we're now at 2.8.7.

You'll need both the I2C package and lm_sensors2 package.  This old message
might also be useful when building for RH (says 9, but applies to 8 also)
