Hi Jean,

Thanks for help. Fan measuring works now with lm_sensors 2.9.2.

sensors output:
Adapter: ISA adapter
fan1:        0 RPM  (min =  640 RPM, div = 8)          ALARM
fan2:     1059 RPM  (min =  640 RPM, div = 8)

I look at motherboard, and there is exactly LPC47M997-NR SMSC I/O chip.
There are probably hardware monitoring block, which is not supported by
this driver. I look at bios and Winblows program PC Alert, and there are
available System and CPU Temperature. Voltages are not supported.
I searched with Google, but datasheet for this chip is not available.
What can I do next for temperature reporting?

There was some discussion about this chip: 

Best regards,
