Re: lm_sensors does not support my board with w83627ehf

Actually that's precicely what I just did, i'm running 2.6.22-3 from backports now, but so far i'm not any better for trying. Now when i run sensors i get the following error:
 ERROR: Can't get adapter or algorithm?!?
So new question: What do i do now? :/

sort of an orthagonal response, but why not install a more recent
kernel from backports?
