Ah..!? On kubuntu 6.10, i use ksensors and it seems that it can monitor 
temperature from acpi and from lm_sensors. Both lm85 and thermal modules are 
loaded. The 2 temperatures are consistent : they are almost the same. And i 
had no crash.
And, i don't have yet ksensors on suse 10.2 but both thermal and lm85 modules 
are loaded and no crash detected.
What is the risk ?
