Hi there,

Thanks very much for the reply.

... OpenIPMI linux kernel driver notes here that could help:

Before mailing the list I saw those notes and tried the suggestion,
but unfortunately no luck.

mail5:~# >>> cat /proc/devices | grep ipmi
mail5:~# >>> modprobe ipmi_devintf
mail5:~# >>> cat /proc/devices | grep ipmi

... if you're using the FreeIPMI tools (i.e. ipmi-sensors or
ipmi-sel), you normally don't need to load the IPMI kernel driver.
FreeIPMI's tools implement a driver in userspace that can work as long
as you are root.

mail5:~# >>> time ipmi-sensors
Caching SDR repository information: 
ipmi_sdr_cache_create: internal IPMI error

real    0m11.730s

You may also find mailing the openipmi users list more helpful than this

Thanks for the pointer, I'll give it a try.
