This issue is fixed in later releases of lm_sensors. For example,
lm_sensors-2.10.3-2 from Fedora Core 7 works as expected.
I am happy to test any fix offered.
Same problem here with a it8718F-chip on CentOS-5.2. The feature request on the CentOS-bugtracker contains updated patches and spec for lm_sensors-2.10.7.
Proposing for RHEL-5.4.
Thanks & regards, Phil
Unless I'm mistaken, the version of lm_sensors proposed for RHEL-5.3 should fix this bug (requires lm_sensors >= 2.10.2). It is BugID 446061 that needs some movement. I have tested the supplied patch for 6 months and provided feedback yet there's still no sign of moving this forward towards release (it's still not fixed in the RHEL-5.3 beta kernels).
