Fw: Ask for some information about motherboard ASUS NCLV-D

Dear Jean, Rudolf

As to the problem we meet on the ASUS NCLV-D motherboard when testing
w83792d driver under linux-2.4, we solve it with your help by writing the
value "0x08" in "0x04b9", and unloading the eeprom modules.

I have two questions here:
(1) As we know, it will be very inconvenient for those users with ASUS
NCLV-D motherboard and want to use w83792d driver under linux-2.4, if they
have to write the value "0x08" into "0x04b9" by themselves each time.
So I wonder whether the related bus driver has been modified so that users
can use w83792d driver easily? Will the coming lm_sensors-2.9.1 fix it?

(2) How about the problem of uploading eeprom? Need uses have to upload the
eeprom by themselves? Or this problem also has been fixed?


Best Regards
