Holy cahones de la... *skipping few languages* ...rear of Vyagrimukha 
and Leviathan!! I'm so happy, de merde!.. So, like... When installing 
mbmon, it gives you an option to disable SMB support; I did never even 
think about disabling it because where would it take the data from?!.. I 
do not have ISA or I2C, so SMB seemed like the only way. But, with this 
support, it's completely impossible to read the temperatures (and -d 
says that, like, ICH found but there is hardware monitor on it...), and 
when you disable this support - it reads everything properly!! Thank you 
very much, my new old CPU will now rest happily knowing that I always 
watch carefully after its temperature...
