I installed SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 for AMD64 & Intel 64 and try to get sensors working.
On my motherboard (Intel® Server Board S1200BTSR) sensors-detect found Winbond W83627DHG-P chip and I need to install w83627ehf.ko driver.
But I see (https://www.suse.com/LinuxPackages/packageRouter.jsp?product=server&version=11&service_pack=sp3&architecture=i386&package_name=kernel-default) that the driver is only in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3 for x86 kernel-default distribution.
Where can i find x86_64 version of this driver?

Hi andy_s,

Where can i find x86_64 version of this driver?

I'll try to find someone that can tell me if it's just an omission or if there are technical reasons for this...

Regards,
Jens

Hi andy_s,

my sources suggest that this is an error, so you should open a service request with SUSE.

Regards,
Jens

According to recently published TID 7015650[1] this was an oversight
which is being rectified.

HTH.
