I've posted new builds of the OpenIPMI device drivers, in DKMS format,
for RHEL3, RHEL4, and SLES9 here: http://linux.dell.com/files/openipmi
Standard disclaimer applies. This is for testing purposes, not for
production use (yet).
This package contains two componenents:
* DKMS (Dynamic Kernel Module Support) - the framework into which
device drivers are built and installed.
* openipmi - OpenIPMI device driver.
These provide an update to the existing OpenIPMI drivers as packaged
with RHEL and SLES to add new functionality:
* New capability: powercycle the system rather than power-off (load
time and runtime tunable).
* Support for using 32-bit userspace libraries while running on a
64-bit x86_64/ia32e kernel, needed by the Dell OpenManage software
* new service 'ipmi' starts and stops the drivers
Changes since last posting (version 33.3 and 35.3):
* Add driver workaround for BMC OEM0 Data Available flag assert bug
* Match Red Hat OpenIPMI package initscript. initscript no longer starts
automatically at system startup without system administrator
intervention, typing: chkconfig ipmi on
* Add prebuilt modules for SLES9 SP2 kernels.
* Fix prebuilt modules on the RHEL4 smp and hugemem kernels (build system bug)
Prebuilt modules for the following kernels/architectures are included:
These represent the "Gold" releases of RHEL3 and 4 for these
architectures, and "Gold" and Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2 for
SLES9. If your system is running other kernel variants, and you have
the the kernel development tools installed, DKMS can be used to
rebuild these modules for your kernel. See the README.dkms file for
This bundle may be installed using the shell script install.sh
