Re: [Freeipmi-devel] hardcoded path to ipmi-sensors in ipmimonitoring sc
Re: [Freeipmi-devel] hardcoded path to ipmi-sensors in ipmimonitoring script caused problems in Gentoo

I have extracted the freeipmi-1.0.4.tar.gz tarball and the last line of
the file ./ipmi-sensors/src/ipmimonitoring contains:
address@hidden:~/freeipmi-1.0.4$ tail -1
exec /usr/local/sbin/ipmi-sensors $options
You mentioned that this should be:
exec @IPMIMONITORINGSBINDIR@/ipmi-sensors $options
Am I looking at a wrong file or is the script in the tarball maybe wrong?
