Hi Al,

Thanks for the answer, but let me be more concrete with the question:
I understand that the file is necessary for the SUN /dev/bmc driver, but
what is the real impact if sunbmc driver is not compiled.
Will it mean that freeipmi will not work on OpenSolaris at all or just some minor
functionality of freeipmi will not work ?

Thanks a lot

Hey Jan,

The bmc_intf.h file is necessary for the Sun /dev/bmc driver.  I don't
include it in FreeIPMI b/c the licensing of OpenSolaris conflicts w/
FreeIPMI.  Anyone who wants to compile FreeIPMI to work w/ it just has
to make sure bmc_intf.h is in their include path so it can be found and
the sunbmc driver can get compiled.

You can read about it in the README.sunbmc.

Hi Al,
please could I have a question regarding one file? In freeipmi porting project which I inherited from my collegue is presented file:
But I have no idea about its purpose. It should be some kind of BMC driver. Do you have some more information about the file and its purpose? Does it have to be somehow integrated into untared freeipmi project before build or project works even without it and I can simply remove that file from my porting project? Please let my know ASAP, thank you
