This is an X/tty motherboard monitor which supports LM78/79, WINBond
83781D/83782D/83783S, ASUS 991227F, and VIA VT82C686A/B PC-health
chips via 3 methods: ISA-I/O, SMBus, VIA-direct.
Run "mbmon -h" or "xmbmon -help" to see the usage.
These programs access to the SMBus or the ISA-IO port directly under
the superuser privilege, so it may cause a system crash. Please test
"mbmon -d" or "xmbmon -debug" first.
