Description of problem:
I ran yum update today and got gnome-applet-sensors-1.4-1.fc4 (as well as kernel-2.6.12-1.1456). After rebooting with the new kernel, the sensors applet crashed during startup. It caused gnome panel to crash too. I've tried re-starting the sensors applet a few times but it crashed each time. I have had to delete it from my panel in order to allow the panel to function.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a desktop session.
2. Wait for bug buddy to inform me that the sensors applet has crashed.
Actual Results: Sensors applet crashed.
Expected Results: Sensors applet should start & work.
Will attach stack trace of crash, which shows an assert failure in sensors_applet_gconf_paths_valid.

Stack trace of crash, captured by bug buddy.
1.4 and kernel 2.6.12-1.1456_FC4 works for me. I'll take a look at this. Could
you give me your /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors ?

I have reverted to gnome-applet-sensors-1.0-1.fc4 which is working fine.
Quoting Alex Murray, sensors-applet author: "The upgrade from 1.0 to 1.4 is not
directly compatible, so you will need to first remove the applet from the panel,
then install the new version and re-add it to the panel."
It worked for me without this step (I think - perhaps I wasn't logged in when
it updated), but that's what he says. Does it work if
you upgrade in this manner?
Yes, removing, updating & re-adding fixed it. Thanks!
