After Kernel upgrade, sensors-applet doesn't display the hd temp. To fix the problem I have to remove and after reinstall hddtemp package... :mad:

try rerunning
sudo sensors-detect. it loads some kernel modules that are required for sensor access and potentially hddtemp as well. see if it works for ya

No, I've just tried it but it doesn't work... The only solution is reinstall hddtemp everytime I upgrade kernel.

that sucks. did you enter 'yes' on the last question in the dialog? it defaults to 'no', so I've missed it a few times.

Yes on the bottom of my /etc/modules there are this lines:

# Chip drivers
coretemp
it87

Moreover if I do sudo hddtemp /dev/sda it outputs me the right temp!

sudo hddtemp /dev/sda
/dev/sda: ST31500341AS: 56C

I just had the same problem.
Running

sudo dpkg-reconfigure hddtemp
fixed it for me.
I just answer yes to all the questions.
