I recently bought Asus F3Jp laptop. I've already installed Linux
(Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft) and now I am in the process of discovering what
sensors are available. This laptop has T7200 Intel Core 2 Duo
processor and Ati x1700 graphics card, I am running linux kernel
2.6.17 supplied by Ubuntu, and I have lm-sensors 2.10.0 installed also
supplied by Ubuntu. I ran sensors-detect, and it detected and loaded
bus support for Intel ICH7. But when I ran sensors, I received a
message that i2c is not available and I should check wheher I have
sysfs. I googled this message and found various responses, usually
telling that it is a sign that lm-sensors do not support my system.
Hence I am writing this letter.

I tried downloading and compiling latest lm-sensors, but it failed
after make user, with message that there is no make rule for file
stdio.h or something like that. I ran newest sensors-detect as told in
installation wizard, and it also detected  that I should load coretemp
kernel module. Now this module is in lm-sensors source, or I should
compile a new kernel?

Currently I can see only the temperature reading from
/proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature. I have module fan loaded but
directory /proc/acpi/fan is empty. I am not very knowledgeable in
details which drivers control what, but I want to find what sensors I
can read on this laptop. I am willing to test new software and give as
much information as possible.

PS I was vague on error message details, because I do not have the
laptop at hand I will post followup with detailed error messages.
