Thank you! It is now working. I removed the eeprom module. What is this
module? I put it in my /etc/rc.local after running sensors-detect but it
seems to be unused by my system... I had alse to disable lm_sensors
services to prevent the loading of this module, so I don't know for what
these services are useful.


eeprom is used for SMBUS.  You could have also just applied the patch
instead of disabling eeprom.

Of course! but that's the why of my mail: as I'm not so aware of what is what among the modules for hardware control, I could see that eeprom module was not in use on my system and that, on the contrary, i2c* modules were used by many others (including nvidia...), I have chosen to disable eeprom rather than apply the patch which disables i2c*.

But I could be wrong!

Thanks for your lights.
