[Freeipmi-devel] Modifications necessary for our PPC environment.

Hi all,

I have gotten ipmiping to work on our PPC target platform but had to make two 
edits to the freeipmi source that you may want to consider fixes for in the 

1)  HAVE_SYS_IO_H and HAVE_ASM_IO_H are both defined in config/config.h.
        This happens because our build environment has both 
/usr/include/asm/io.h and
        /usr/include/sys/io.h present.  However our cross compiler directory 
chain only
        has .../asm/io.h present.  I believe the fix for this is for either 
      or the configure script itself to test for cross compilation and then 
look in the
        correct directory tree for the include files.

2)  Executing ipmiping on our target consistently resulted in "Command line 
option error".
        This was tracked down to _cmdline_parse() in ping-tool-common.c.  The 
                while ((c = getopt (argc, argv, options)) != -1)

        succeeds even when -1 is returned.  This is a variable/constant size 
issue as 
        the test is performed over 16 or 32 bits instead of the 8 bits desired. 
 I have 
        fixed the problem with:
                while ((c = getopt (argc, argv, options)) != (char)-1)

Hopefully fixes for these can be included in the next release?

Thanks for your help in getting freeipmi up and working on our target.

Dick D.
