Re: no config opt for k8temp in 3.6.11

When I do a grep for K8 in my .config file all I get is the following:

> grep -i k8 /usr/local/hugedisk/src/linux-3.6.11/.config

When I try your grep command I get:

> grep -E "^CONFIG_SENSORS" /usr/local/hugedisk/src/linux-3.6.11/.config|grep K

I will try doing a make mrproper and see if anything changes.

Thanks for the reply.
