Hi Emily,

Right now I think FreeIPMI checks for root in all of the major public releases.

I could create a build option to disable this for a new build, but not sure if that would solve this particular problem for you given your situation.

Hi FreeIPMI Team,

I am wondering if any of the freeipmi releases have the dont check for root flag set? I need to install the package via apt, so unfortunately compiling from source will not work for our particular use case. Due to some strict permissions, we cannot run the command with sudo however I can change the permissions of /dev/ipmi0 to avoid lower level failures.

Thanks very much for any help you can provide!

Kind regards,
