I've got a Powerbook 12" 1.33 GHz G4, so it might be slightly different
This should be easy to setup. Sorry if you've already tried (I'm _very_
new to the mailing lists), just follow the instructions at
and you will be able to get it working.

Installing the module works fine for me. Here's my output when I do
install the module.
debian:/home/pgoh# modprobe therm_adt746x

make head or tail of the data you've just posted.
