First of all: Welcome to ubuntuforums.
No offense, but if you post stuff from the terminal please put it in a code box (the # button in the post editor) instead of using quote boxes. It keeps the posts smaller and prevents smilies.
That said, it seems you're also using a self compiled lm-sensors. A lot has happened since October 2004 and unless your hardware is so new that the lm-sensors in the ubuntu repository doesn't support the sensor chips in your machine yet, there is no need to compile the lm-sensors from http://www.lm-sensors.org/
I just installed a fresh ubuntu 11.10 and all I neded to do was:
1: Open a terminal and do
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors
Unless you have run sudo sensors-detect before, answer all questions with "yes" (default for all but the last question).
or reboot (both have the same effect).
sudo service module-init-tools start
4: Do and you'll see the output of the sensors that have been found on your machine.
If at step 2 you answered the last question with "no", you'll need to ad the sensors sensors-detect found to /etc/modules manually. Open /etc/modules in an editor
and copy+paste what sensors-detect found for you (between the #----cut here---- lines).
gksudo gedit /etc/modules
That's what I'd do. I rarely compile stuff and can't remember uninstalling something I complied, ever. But if I'd have to, I'd try using synaptic.
