Okay. I got i2c_i801.ko and coretemp.ko created and loaded in the
kernel. The CONFIG_ACPI_SBS=m parameter creates two modules: sbs.ko and
sbshc.ko; modprobe sbs loades both; hence no smartbatt. The relevant
section from sensors-detect output is
Next adapter: SMBus I801 adapter at 18a0 (i2c-0)
Do you want to scan it? (YES/no/selectively): YES
Client found at address 0x0b
Probing for `Smart Battery'... Success!
(confidence 5, driver `smartbatt')
Client found at address 0x19
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1021'... No
Probing for `Analog Devices ADM1021A/ADM1023'... No
Probing for `Maxim MAX1617'... No
Probing for `Maxim MAX1617A'... No
Probing for `Maxim MAX1668'... No
Probing for `Maxim MAX1805'... No
and it calls for smartbatt. Instead I loaded sbs.ko. The current output
of sensors is
Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0: +56°C (high = +100°C)
Should the output show also info on the battery? Am I still missing
something configuring ls_sensors?
