| Successfully compiled on FreeBSD with a little porting effort.
| I tried this beta release on a FreeBSD based system we have.
| The system is Intel chassis SR2400 having Intel SE7520JR2 motherboard.
| I had problem using bmc-info and ipmi-sensors.
Intel's EM64T Xeon motherboards like SE7520JR2 or SE7520AF2 comes with
very limited IPMI functionality onboard. You need to install a daughter
card to get full IPMI-1.5/2.0 functionality. We have tested GNU
FreeIPMI using the daughter card. I am not sure about the onboard
BMC. It looks like it has just SSIF interface (NOT KCS). 

Currently SSIF driver in libfreeipmi uses smbus driver of the
linux kernel. I am not sure how different it is in FreeBSD. 

You can help us in 2 ways:
* Remote access to your system (as root user)
* We can send you a simple tool (C source). You can run and debug.

Also the current SSIF driver is not tested. We wrote it based on specs
and info from Fermi labs. I don't have any system to test it out even
in Linux kernel.
