openSuse 11 - I8K Kernel Module Missing

Hi guys,

I read all the forum posts here in regards to i8k kernel module, i8kutils etc … still, I can’t make it work in openSuse 11.
I have a Dell XPS M1710 laptop and it gets very, very hot after a while; I’m worried about this. :’(
I’m a Suse fan so I really want to get i8kutils work in openSuse; I’ve tried other distros, e.g. Mandriva, and installing/enabling i8k kernel module was so easy. :frowning:

Doing modprobe i8k returns this error:

**FATAL: Error inserting i8k (/lib/modules/2.6.25.16-0.1-default/kernel/drivers/char/i8k.ko): No such device
**
Do you have any ideas about how to solve this in openSuse 11?
