Hi there,

First post.  First time using IPMI.  I have no clue what I'm doing.

I have an Acer Altos G310 server which has a FS1100A motherboard.
The machine is running Debian 'Squeeze' which allegedly provides IPMI
support.  All I want to do is log some temperatures.

# dmidecode 2.9
SMBIOS 2.3 present.
62 structures occupying 1884 bytes.
Table at 0x000FAC40.

Handle 0x0000, DMI type 0, 20 bytes

        Base Address: 0x0000000000000000 (Memory-mapped)

The full output of dmidecode is available here if requried:

The ipmi_devintf module loads without complaint and this
loads the impi_msghandler module automaticall but no ipmi* device is
created in /dev although there is an entry in /proc/devices.  Module
ipmi_si fails to load.

I have tried to load the ipmi_si module using assorted manually set
parameters and met only failure.

Am I missing something obvious?
