Hi Al,

I finally got to freeipmi porting again (I was on my first vacation this year .. finally :)). I 'd use a bit of your help (if you can spare some time):

1. under which license is freeipmi distributed? i fail to spot any mention 'bout licensing 2. i am a bit confused about the tarball distribution - it seems to me that it contains only source files and it has to be re-compiled on a end-user machine, right? if yes, see 3. 3. is there a target that would create a distribution archive containing only all compiled files (for a certain platform)?

Thx,

Michal

Great ... I will let you know about the status of the package porting. It seems that we have couple of boxes with sunbmc driver :-P .. at least I have "bmc listed under /dev/bmc". I will let you know about the progress of testing/porting .. ideally, the package should be ready for snv_107.

Regards,

Michal

Hey Michal,

my effort is to create a OpenSolaris package for freeipmi and make this package available in OpenSolaris package repositories ..

Cool.
Honestly, the build ran out-of-box (I've just checked out freeipmi from CVS and build it).

That's good :-)

Did you make some adjustments in the code regarding the Solaris OS?

Yes, the 0.7.0 does have changes for Solaris.  They were all generic
porting issues between *nix systems.  Solaris uses a different number of
arguments to gethostbyname_r, the argp parsing library didn't exist on
solaris, a whole bunch of strXXX() functions weren't on solaris, various
Makefile tweaks for portability, etc.

The sunbmc driver has not been tested at all in FreeIPMI 0.7.0.  So if
you have a system with that driver, it'd be good to see if FreeIPMI
0.7.0 implements things correctly.

Thanks,
Al

Hi Al,

no, not at all - I primary work on other task, while porting freeipmi to opensolaris is a side-task (but important). Well, I'd be glad if I can co-operate with you regarding this - my effort is to create a OpenSolaris package for freeipmi and make this package available in OpenSolaris package repositories ..

So far I was able tried to build freeipmi on a OpenSolaris box (as a part of opensolaris build process ..) but I have not tested the functionality. Honestly, the build ran out-of-box (I've just checked out freeipmi from CVS and build it). Did you make some adjustments in the code regarding the Solaris OS?

Hey Michal,

I hope you didn't do too much work, I did porting for Solaris in the
FreeIPMI 0.7.0 :-)  (hopefully released in a month or so).  You can
download the beta off the webpage.

PRobably I have overlooked something ..
I did a quick check, and FreeIPMI 0.7.0 does properly "make dist" on my
system (SunOS 5.11).  Maybe you'll want to give it a crack instead?

Hi guys,

I'm trying to port freeipmi to OpenSolaris - build is not a problem, but I need to transfer the built stuff (ideally some kind of installation binaries) to other host to test them. I have tried "make dist" and I thought that the produced tarball containsed all necessary stuff to just do "make install" on other host, but to my surprise it did not.

PRobably I have overlooked something ..

Regards,

Michal
