Is anyone running this software on a COS 6+ box to monitor sensors?

Ill need to install this on my new poweredge.
This Poweredge 2950 gen 2 sounds like an f16 taking off so I did what everyone else has done and modded the fans with resistors to knock the rpm's down. Worked nicely and she still pushing plenty of air while being pretty quiet.
I will have to flash a modified BMC file to the mgmnt control so I can modify the lower rpm threshold.

In case any of you folks are running a Dell poweredge server in your house anywhere and your old lady says it sounds like a leaf blower 24/7 get it out of this house.

Personally Im going to up my resistors to 33-ohms@1 or 2 watts. Im current at 33-ohms at .5 watt
If you need to do this let me know I can get you more detailed photos of my innards than this guy has.

Anyhow Im just curious if anyone has installed that FreeIPMI sensor software on a COS box?

    The kernel as it comes from COS does not have the device driver support enabled for IPMI. You would need to configure and rebuild the kernel to enable it.
