hi, would it be possible to run ipmidetectd from the command line with the --debug option and see if we can get more debugging?  Or to atleast see if this is specific to systemd or not.  Thanks.

Also, this appears to be the fedora build of FreeIPMI.  Unsure if they have tweaked / modified the systemd files compared to what is in the upstream of FreeIPMI.
