An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.

Description:

This update for OpenIPMI provides the following fix:

  • On aarch64 hardware, the IPMI hardware was detected but an incorrect driver was loaded ("ipmi_si.ko" rather than the correct "ipmi_ssif.ko"). The fix adds a new entry to /etc/sysconfig/ipmi which defines the name of the driver to load. A utility (/usr/lib/openipmi-helper) then uses this name to load the correct driveri. (bsc#1060799)
