Try lsmod to see if the appropriate modules have been loaded.
Also, if /dev/ipmi0 exists, check if it has been bound to the correct
character device (there are 254 possible...).
See the README file in the ipmitool package for details.
There is also a script called ipmi.init (or ipmi.init.basic) that does
the setup work for you. Try running it (as root) before executing
ipmitool. My Slackware machine is running ipmi.init as a part of system
startup (the script is a part of the ipmitool package).
