Yes, sorry.

Yes, very informative, thanks!

The 0.86 release doesn't compile, but the cvs one does. The module loads
fine, syslog:

 kernel: Linux video capture interface: v1.00
 kernel: rivatv: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
 kernel: rivatv: Video4Linux driver for NVIDIA cards
 kernel: rivatv: MMX processor extension enabled

Thanks for the clarification. I can't get modprobe w83l785ts with
various probe= and force= options to do anything useful. Loading
i2c-nforce2 makes two i2c busesses avilable, numbered 0 and 1.
Presumably something similar would have to happen if the graphics card
has an i2c bus too? Dunno how though. :(
I've insmoded all /lib/modules/2.6.13-15.7-default/kernel/drivers/i2c/busses/*
ignoring the errors, and rivafb and rivatv, sensors-detect finds a lot
more but it's all bogus. sensors -s (with the original sensors.conf),
then sensors outputs only zeros for anything that wasn't there before.
Might have to give up. :((

Thanks again for all your insights.
