I installed the OpenIPMI packages but when I run the above command
I get the following:

(geppetto pts5) # ipmitool sdr
Could not open device at /dev/ipmi0 or /dev/ipmi/0 or /dev/ipmidev/0: No such file or directory
Get Device ID command failed
Unable to open SDR for reading
(geppetto pts6) # rpm -qa | grep -i ipmi
(geppetto pts6) # lsmod | grep -i ipmi
(geppetto pts6) #

Is there something special that needs to be done to enable ipmitool? lsmod
shows that
none of the ipmi modules are loaded. Do I need some magic incantation in
/etc/modules.conf or is there some other package I need?

the machine is an ibm X3655 with C5 installed on it.
