Description of problem:
two hour boot time ... one of boot messages is "starting ipmi drivers [failed]"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Package OpenIPMI-2.0.16-1.fc11.i586 already installed and latest version
How reproducible: every reboot
in service configuration shows ipmi enabled but status unknown;
[root@localhost thetrude]# service ipmi start
Starting ipmi drivers: [FAILED]
[root@localhost thetrude]# chkconfig openipmi on
error reading information on service openipmi: No such file or directory
please help straighten this out with clear directions 'cause I'm new to Fedora
I am not sure I understand the problem here... Does the "starting ipmi drivers [failed]" take too long time during boot? Or is it just one of the failed services and you have no idea which one took so much time?
IPMI service is not enabled by default, you had to enable it manually. Do you have supported hardware? Do you need the IPMI service at all? If not, please disable it:
$ service ipmi stop
$ chkconfig ipmi off
Please also review configuration in /etc/sysconfig/ipmi.
If the 'service ipmi start' really takes too much time, I need to know what exactly is the cause. Please try:
$ bash -x /etc/init.d/ipmi start
and see, which command stucks for unusually long time. Please attach the output of the command to this bug with some marks what was the slow part.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
