Well, again, you haven't said what kernel you're using.  You haven't
said whether you're using a stock Debian kernel, or one that you
built yourself.  As I said, that's what determines what you need to
download.  Without that bit of information, I don't know what you

If you built your own kernel . . .I went to http://www.debian.org/ ,
clicked on "Mailing List Archives", clicked on "our archives can
also be searched", used the Google form, and searched on
"lm-sensors i2c modules install", looked at several of the responses,
and came upon a reply to this:


which is a pretty good step-by-step description.

OTOH, if you didn't build your kernel yourself, then you have to
install the appropriate packages.  Which packages depends on which
kernel, and only you can say what kernel you're running.  If you
installed a Debian kernel, but don't know what kernel it is,
the "uname" command can help you.
