Cannot find via686a

Hi,

I hope this is the best address for this kind of trouble report. If
not I would be grateful for pointers to a better place.


I want to use the sensors of my Abit KT7A-RAID motherboard, running
Debian Sarge. For this, I started sensors-detect, which told me use
the modules i2c-isa and via686a. I use a monolithic kernel, but I
double-checked that both items are part of my 2.6.9 kernel.

Alas, sensors can't find anything but the RAM:
- - - Schnipp - - -
yooden at eumel % sensors
eeprom-i2c-1-51
Adapter: SMBus Via Pro adapter at 5000
Memory type:            SDR SDRAM DIMM
Memory size (MB):       256

eeprom-i2c-1-50
Adapter: SMBus Via Pro adapter at 5000
Memory type:            SDR SDRAM DIMM
Memory size (MB):       256

Here are some kernel option which I think are important:

I read around but can't find anything wrong. There is no error
message, my sensors are just not there.


What would solve problem? What can I do to find out more about the
problem? Is there any information that would help finding the cause?


Thanks in advance,

Thorsten
