Because the sensor driver for your CPU is not in the kernel.

Yes; there also exist several patches for new "k10temp" drivers.
1) Save the patch to a file.
2) Get the kernel source (usually a package named "kernel-source-2.6.xx"
with the correct kernel configuration.
3) Go to the kernel source's top directory, and run
patch < /where/you/have/put/the/patchfile
4) Recompile the kernel: "make"
5) Install the kernel.
Steps 2+5 are dependent on your distribution; you should look into your
distribution's documentation for detailed instructions.
Jean, who is the hwmon maintainer?
Or where should new drivers be submitted?
