Hmm. Error message would be nice.

I suspect that the only thing that failed was "up2date -i
dell-hw-specific-repository", as that is the only thing that does
anything with up2date in the bootstrap script.

You can just do a "yum -y install dell-hw-specific-repository" instead
to pull in the correct RPMS.

I take patches, so if you see a way to cleanly support your setup in
addition to the default, I would welcome adding this.
