,----[ Avnindra Singh <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> ] | 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) OR * 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. -- Anand Babu GPG Key ID: 0x62E15A31 Blog [http://ab.freeshell.org] The GNU Operating System [http://www.gnu.org] Z RESEARCH [http://www.zresearch.com] A Supercomputing Company. _______________________________________________ Freeipmi-devel mailing list Freeipmiemail@example.com http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/freeipmi-devel
