I’ve a couple of machines running Centos 5 on Via Epia motherboards.

Sadly kernel versions up to and including 2.6.18 dont ship with the required vt1211 (Broken link http://hem.bredband.net/ekmlar/vt1211.html) kernel module. This means that both Centos and Redhat Enterprise 5 lack the module required to gather sensors data. Because it is a bit of a chore to patch the kernel source and compile the driver any I compile I’ll keep here.

i686 Kernels

Documenting the use of this module is beyond the scope of this post, for information regarding that please see the home page for lm_sensors (Broken link ~~http://www.lm-sensors.org/~~).

Many thanks to Lars Ekman for writing and maintaining this module!
