I‘m trying to run a command called sensors-detect and I was recommended to use it87.ko Linux kernel driver. But, when I do modprobe it87, I get the following error under Debian Linux
FATAL: Error inserting it87 (/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/kernel/drivers/hwmon/it87.ko): Device or resource busy
How do I fix this problem under Debian GNU/Linux 6.x?
I‘m getting the following error in /var/log/messages file and my sensors command is also not working:

How do I fix this problem under Debian or Ubuntu Linux desktop system?

How do I disable USB device support under RHEL 5.x workstation operating systems?
