Hi Chunhao,

Picking the sources from some random website doesn't sound really good
;) I would use this one:

At least you'll be sure the file is correct and up-to-date. If you want
the file itself, which I think you can't download from bitkeeper's web
interface, then you should simply download linux-2.6.11-rc1.

I did not experience any problem recently. Try again later, if it still
doesn't work you may contact Philip Edelbrock but since it works for me
the problem might be on your side and not on the server side.

I am not an expert in bus drivers, so say the least. All I can tell is
that the Linux 2.6 i2c-ali1563 driver is based on the Linux 2.6
i2c-ali15x3, i2c-ali1535, and i2c-i801 drivers. This means that if you
compare these drivers with their lm_sensors CVS counterparts and report
the differences to the i2c-ali1563 driver, you should get a driver that
works with lm_sensors CVS. If you have more technical questions, I guess
that the various folks who wrote and ported these bus drivers will be of
more help to you than I can be myself.
