Hi Everyone, 


I have a dell 1750 server with ERA/O card running on FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE


According to Dell, the ERA card supports ipmi 1.0:



But so far no luck with freebsd :/ 


[root at home /usr/src/sys/i386/conf]# ipmitool -I open channel info 1

Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0: No
such file or directory


[root at home /usr/src/sys/i386/conf]# kldstat       

Id Refs Address    Size     Name

 1    5 0xc0400000 4eed90   kernel

 3    2 0xc08fb000 1bd0     smbus.ko

 4    2 0xc08fd000 6a594    acpi.ko

 7    1 0xc69b7000 a000     ipmi.ko


[root at home /usr/src/sys/i386/conf]# pciconf -lv 


none0 at pci0:0:8:0:       class=0xff0000 card=0x000c1028 chip=0x000c1028
rev=0x00 hdr=0x00

    vendor     = 'Dell Computer Corporation'

    device     = 'Embedded Systems Management Device 4'


Any hacks or wisdom that can make this work?
