OMSA is not supported by Dell on any Fedora Core version, only Red Hat Enterprise and Suse Enterprise distributions.

Subject: LCD access on PowerEdge 1950 with Fedora 6

I have read the email on
and have a simular problem - perhaps anyone can give me a hint:

I run Fedora 6 on our PowerEdge 1950 and I would like to see the load
average on the lcd-display. Therefor I installed OMI-50-MN-LX_A01.tar.gz
and tried:
    omconfig chassis frontpanel lcdindex=1 config=custom text=Hallo
But the result is the error-message:
    Error! LCD options are not supported on this system.

Does anyone has any idea what I have to do to make this work?
