Hi Rory,

	I undestand that it is not practical to compile a kernel just to test a
module. So I just tried to make it available in a binary form. 

Can you try adding 

deb http://cedric.pradalier.free.fr/ibook2/ ./

in you /etc/apt/sources.list file ?

You should be able to install a package adm103x-module-2.6.6-powerpc,
and eventually, after modprobing the therm_adm103x module, you can
install wmadm, a small dockable app to monitor your ibook temperature.

When loading therm_adm103x, it should output default parameter of the
adm103x chip in syslog. Can you report them ? I wonder if this is a
constant value for any ibook ?
