Comment 6 Ernie Petrides 2005-08-09 15:00:56 EDT
This is a follow-on request to bug 146460.  Removing dependency, though.
Comment 10 Ernie Petrides 2005-08-10 17:29:35 EDT
Larry Troan, in response to comment #8, there's no need to make this bug
depend on bug 146460.  This report is about a short-coming in the U6 beta
kernel, which already includes the updated IPMI support.  This report
is legitimately a U6 respin candidate, but it still needs appropriate
approvals (from Eng, QA, PM).
Comment 12 Ernie Petrides 2005-08-11 17:58:33 EDT
Adding appropriate management to cc: list.
Comment 13 Peter Martuccelli 2005-08-16 12:45:43 EDT
Patch posted for RHEL3 U6.
Comment 15 Ernie Petrides 2005-08-19 18:05:38 EDT
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U6
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-35.EL).

This patch is required in the U6 kernel to update the version number of the
IPMI driver. I will push it to the bugzilla for review by beta-kernel

RHEL3 patch to update version revision to 35

Comment 23 Ernie Petrides 2005-09-01 20:23:25 EDT
Please note that this latest request to modify the version number
(and format) is now being tracked in bug 167369 (since this bug is
already in ON_QA state and was approved for the original IPMI update).
