Hi

Thank you very much.
I found the reason for the problem.
It was our /etc/redhat-release
The system ist running under Centos-4, but form some
third party software it needs to be identified as RHEL.
Under Centos-3 we had therefore the following
/etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon)
After the Upgrade to Centos-4 we changed it to
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Taroon)
The ipmi install script was not happy with this file,
because it makes the decision if it runs on RHEL3/4
by grepping for Taroon/Nahant in
/etc/redhat-release
Therefore it assumes a RHEL3 systems and tries to install the wrong driver.
Afterr fixing the file to
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant)
the install works fine.

My fault

Thank you very much

Hansjörg
