I had the exact same problem when I upgraded from sarge to etch but I lost the grey cells storing the memory of what I did to sort it out.

Looking around the net, I'm not getting much beyond the idea that udev should be creating something for me that it doesn't want to.

I tried removing and purging the lm-sensors package, but a re-installation didn't help. I read that I should be running sensors-detect to re-create the missing config, but when I try, sensor-detect gives me what looks to be a completely obsolete warning to "run mkdev.sh" which is a script I don't have, or at least it didn't come with lm-sensors.

The lm-sensors docs tell me I must have an old version of lm-sensors but I actually have the latest - I just did the lenny upgrade. So I'm not sure what's going on.

Any advice?

Shot in the dark: do you have the relevant modules for your sensors loaded?

I'm fairly sure that running sensors-detect is meant to tell you what modules to load. So you're probably right - but I need sensors-detect to run properly first - or maybe I'm misinterpreting what it means:

adam@gondor:~$ sudo sensors-detect
[sudo] password for adam:
No i2c device files found. Use prog/mkdev/mkdev.sh to create them.

mkdev.sh is obsolete, that's according to the lm-sensors website.
