Re: Missing Modules for lm_sensors, where do they come from?
I didn't include any more information as I was not expecting any more help
at that time. But thanks anyway.
I have followed the links you gave me and I think I understand how it all
fits together now , and I of course found the it87.c source file too.
At the moment I have an unresolved symbols problem, but I'll get round that too.

thanks for your answer, I spent most of yesterday googling and looking
at the lm-sensors website. I found various module packages, but never
did actually find one for my Kernel, but I also never ever found
anything that actually stated what you have said. Maybe I am just blind.
What also was not clear was how the Debian package I got via apt-get
related to what I would get if I had just got the lm-sensors packages
and compiled everything myself. I tried looking for other Debian
packages via APT that may have had the modules, without any luck.
Still now I really do know what I am looking for.
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.
