My understanding is that lm-sensors supports a small number of
laptops, but it doesn't support e.g. mine.

http://secure.netroedge.com/~lm78/supported.html doesn't list that as
supported by lm-sensors.  :-/

Well, you do need to come up with the kernel modules from somewhere,
but I think sensors-detect doesn't actually try to load kernel modules
other than i2c drivers.  (And you'd be asking "how come sensors-detect
breaks horribly for me" if that were actually the problem.)  So
lm-sensors probably isn't the answer for you.
