                     Mandrake Linux Update Advisory

Package name:           lm_sensors
Advisory ID:            MDKA-2002:019
Date:                   November 29th, 2002

Affected versions:      9.0

Problem Description:

 A bug in the lm_sensors scripts prevented lm_sensors from loading all
 required modules.  This off-by-one error would load all modules less
 one module, resulting in problems.  This update corrects the problem.
