Description of problem:
From my /var/log/messages:

Jul  6 15:34:50 shotgun kernel: i2c-proc.o version 2.6.1 (20010825)
Jul  6 15:36:17 shotgun kernel: i2c-amd756.o version 2.6.1 (20010830)
Jul  6 15:36:17 shotgun kernel: i2c-amd756.o: Error: Can't detect AMD756,
function 3!
Jul  6 15:36:17 shotgun kernel: i2c-amd756.o: AMD756/766 not detected, module
not inserted.

# rpm -q lm_sensors

2.6.3 is needed to detect the AMD768 chipset properly. Bug 65045 documents this
for RH7.3, "the newer lm_sensors changes the kernel<->userspace interface a bit,
not something we can do within a release".  Now you can :-).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.modprobe i2c-amd756

Actual Results:  /lib/modules/2.4.18-5.58smp/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-amd756.o:
init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
      You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5.58smp/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-amd756.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5.58smp/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-amd756.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-5.58smp/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-amd756.o: insmod i2c-amd756

Just try the 2.4.18-5.61 kernel from rawhide :)
