Subject description: vt8231 kernel module missing
 

Hi,
I have an epia-v 800 motherboard with the vt8231 chip, and puppy 3.01 frugal install on a cf card.
i have installed the lm-sensors-2.10.4.pet, it correctly detects the vt8231 chip but the kernel module is missing although it should be in all 2.6 kernels, is it possible to add that module or something i missed?
thank you

so here is what i did:
1. downloaded puppy 3.01 unleashed
2. extracted 3 kernel modules: hwmon.ko,hwmon-vid.ko,vt8231 (from the 2.6.21.7 kernel)
3. copied all 3 files to /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/kernel/drivers/hwmon (hwmon is a new directory)
4. edited the files /lib/modules/2.6.21.7/modules.dep and /lib/modules/modules.dep.2.6.21.7 to include the new kernel modules
5. loaded the modules with puppy bootmanager
6. rebooted
7. or just: modprobe hwmon, modprobe hwmon-vid, modprobe vt8231
8. sensors

thats it working now
