You have to have i2c and lm_sensors in your kernel (or as
modules). Then you have to uses the "sensors-detect"
command to find the sensors. It will tell you what modules
need to be loaded and what you need to do to yout
rc.local file.

Do a 'lsmod' to see if any i2c and sensors modules are loaded
(if they are built as modules). If you don't see any, then I bet
you need to run sensors-detect.

Once it detects a sensors, you will see entries in,


Good Luck!
