The latest ibm-prtm package has been released on its sourceforge page:
Version 1.7 supports the new platforms that were added with the latest i7core_edac driver that was
Major changes in 1.7 that might be of notice:
1) The init script is now LSB compliant so it should be able to be used AS-IS on all LSB compliant
2) Point 1 includes taking out the ipmi init code that used to be in the script and replacing it
with a dependency on ipmidrv in the INIT INFO section
3) the init script has been changed to expect that the daemon script lives in /usr/sbin instead of
/sbin, since that makes more sense. The Makefile has been changed to suit (in case anybody uses that).
Please pull this in as the latest ibm-prtm package.

Notes from the weekly call:
1) ibm-prtmd moved from /sbin to /usr/sbin, so packaging needs to be aware of that.
2) ibm-prtm script depends on ipmi, so package needs to depend on OpenIPMI-tools.
ibm-prtm-1.7-2 is in testing for an upcoming security errata.

I must have missed the dependency because I don't see it listed in what I specified below, but ibm-prtm package needs to depend on OpenIPMI too. This is the package that provides /etc/init.d/ipmi which loads the ipmi drivers needed by ipmitool to talk to the BMC.
Also, I am not sure how this works, but we need to make sure that the ipmi init script is enabled too. I thought that is what the LSB headers of Requires and Provides are supposed to do, but apparently not. So we need to add a 'chkconfig ipmi on' to the post-install script or something.
So to sum up:
1) add rpm dependency for OpenIPMI package
2) enable ipmi init script on install
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
Support added for SMI remediation for the IBM BladeCenter HS22V, IBM System x3650 M3 and x3550 M3 systems. In addition, the init script has been fixed so that it is now compliant with Linux Standard Base (LSB) guidelines, thus resolving this issue.
