,----[ Albert Chu <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> ] | A.B., | | Was your "fix" to manually code the io-port address, register spacing, | etc. into bmc-info to get around the SMBIOS broken-ness? If that's the | case, then we should add options to bmc-info and all the inband tools to | allow the user to manually set them on the command line (or via config | file) if the firmware is bad. Otherwise how will any user with bad | firmware ever use FreeIPMI? Especially if IBM never releases a fix | (they may not be obligated to). `---- Two fixes were required.
1) Fix#1: SMBIOS record length check. I will include this in change and make a new 0.2.1 release. 2) Fix#2: SMBIOS wrongly reports as memory-mapped instead of I/O mapped. User can override the SMBIOS locate values by passing command line arguments. # bmc-info --no-probing -D KCS --driver-address=3234 Note: 3234 is 0x0CA2 as reported by "ipmi-locate" utility. I will document this in the FAQ. Can you or Rene provide me the out-of-band details required for IBM e325 as well. NOTE: --no-probing got broken in CVS. Bala will look into it. For 0.2.0 --no-probing should work OK.
