This issue should also affect FC3
Comment 1 Phil Knirsch 2005-09-01 13:38:11 EDT
Fixed in development version, other releases will follow soon.

Read ya, Phil
Comment 3 Dimitris 2005-11-07 04:21:16 EST
Are there plans to release a new lm_sensors package? FC4 comes with version
2.8.8 which is nearly a year old. I think the current CVS release is 2.9.3.

Thank you.
