Phoronix: LM_Sensors 3.1.2 Released: Better HW Support
Jean Delvare has announced the second point release for the LM_Sensors 3.1 series, which was introduced last March. The LM_Sensors 3.1.2 release delivers better Linux system sensor monitoring support by preemptively adding support for future kernels and HID devices in libsensors, the sensord daemon has received a lot of clean-ups, and sensors-detect is better detecting the supported sensors with drivers. The LM_Sensors 3.1.2 release announcement can be found on the project's mailing list...
Not too clear from the site, but did they ever get temp reporting working in the AMD phenom II's?
According to the official list, there should be working support in 2.6.33 for all hardware that doesn't suffer from Errata 319, which may or may not include your CPU. (Of course, according to the documentation this feature doesn't actually measure absolute temperature anyway, just temperature relative to the point at which maximum cooling is needed.)
