omreport 4.5.0-335 : no temperature or fans probes on DELL PE1800

I've began to play with omreport to retrieve datas and monitor this server 
(thanks to zabbix).

I'm able to retrieve RAID state of my PERC4/DC controller for instance, but 
unable to retrieve temperatures or fan datas.
(see commands output below).

Did I missed something ? Does someone has a clue ?

I've also tried to play with IPMI, but it's a nightmare (kernel modules...): 
I'm able to retrieve temperatures datas for a few hours only; so the 
temperatures probes are OK.

On this other hand, "omreport" looks like all the simple stuff I need...

thanks in advance for your replies.
