    Hi Mark,

    You may have whatever accounts, e-mail web page space
you need to help support the i2c or lm packages.

    I have installed the newest of both on a machine that
is locking up every couple of hours which is why this is
driving me nuts.

    The bios shows the cpu temps to be normal, but the sensors
is still only showing one temp.

    Fans show up in the MAX driver, examples mailed separately.

    Homer
