| Thanks biju

Please try CVS snapshot of Alpha6 version. You have all packages under
single tree.

Device drivers are implemented in user-space and bundled along with
libfreeipmi. For KCS driver, the linked application is required to
initialize the driver through 
int ipmi_kcs_io_init (u_int16_t sms_io_base, unsigned long sleep_usecs)

To test if your IPMI system works try 'bmc-info' command.
Refer freeipmi/fish/src/fish.c for ipmi_kcs_io_init example.

Hope this helps.
