I'll try the CVS version, but I'm not sure that that is the problem.  I had 
lm_sensors working on this computer before I upgraded to SuSE 9.0 from SuSE 
8.2, and at that point I remember that it was a w83781d chip.  I have an 
Asus A7N8X-X, so that is what it's upposed to have.  I'll try the it87 
though, and let you know how it works.
