I've installed kernel-tmb-2.6.5-1.tmb.5mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm, and still no  
temperatures. Several instances of Vcore 1, all showing different voltages.
This might tell me something, but don't know what it means:
[root at localhost bin]# find / -name *libsensors.so.3

introduced in Linux 2.6.5-rc1. The sensors-detect script doesn't know
about which modules are available on which kernels. So basically you'll
need a newer kernel in order to get hardware monitoring to work on your
