I got some MIBs for Siemens HiPath Systems. Unfortunately I can't compile the MIB file.

The MIB is not fully compatible. Remove the parts that are problematic from the MIB and try again.

A friend fixed it using http://www.simpleweb.org/ietf/mibs/validate/
I could create the event files: http://issues.opennms.org/browse/NMS-7027
