[Despite what the forum thinks, I'm not a complete newbie - I just had to create a new ID!]
I'm having trouble with detecting sensors - for use with fancontrol - with an Asus P8H67 mobo. I had a LOT of trouble with this when I first set up this machine on 11.04, a couple of years ago. The main cause being that the super i/o chip on this mobo didn't have a driver readily available. With some great help from this forum, I was talked through the process of locating a suitable driver and then pushing the right buttons to get the sensors detected. Great!
Now, however, I want to build a fresh install - same hardware, different disc partition. I've installed 12.04 and the fancontrol and lm_sensors packages. 12.04 seems to have the driver included, but I can't get it to work.
I ran "sudo sensors-detect" and it found the i/o chip, and added "w83627" to /etc/modules
After a restart, "dmesg | grep ehf" suggests that the i/o chip has been found...
[ 1.750315] w83627ehf: Found NCT6776F chip at 0x290
but running "sensors" indicates that the mobo sensors haven't been located, which of course means that pwmconfig is no use to me.

Core 1: +33.0°C (high = +82.0°C, crit = +102.0°C)
Can anyone give me some clues as to what I'm missing? I KNOW the sensors are there because the 11.04 installation can find them!
