Same caveats apply I'm sure. Don't install lm_sensors package, and you
don't have anything to worry about. Or, if it does get installed, make
sure sensors-detect (IIRC) is not run, and delete the sensors stuff at
the first chance.

Installed 7.2 yesterday w/ no problems thus far. The kde package (can't
remember which one) still has the lm_sensors package as a dependency,
but that's easy enough to get around.
