installing and configuring lm_sensors for 2.6.10-1.771_FC2 & matrox
g450 dual head. As it turns out the big prob is that while
sensors-detect does find the sensors chips, it's way off on its
The script wants these modules loaded:
i2c-matroxfb is uneeded and creates the problem with the smbus and
blanked screens, and the ddcmon module which is non-existent.
The correct configuration for lm_sensors with matrox/2.6.10/FC2 is
to modprobe the i2c-isa (which autoloads i2c-sensor and i2c-core)
and w83627hf and then running sensors -s; all of this can be placed
in /etc/rc.local, and that's it.
