Hi there list

i have followed the instructions from the sara site added the repositories
and at the installation i got the following error
and this /etc/init.d/instsvcdrv is not starting
from a little search i made i think the error has something to do with the ipmi

Starting ipmi driver: *
invoke-rc.d: initscript instsvcdrv, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing dellomsa (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

i believe this is not the right list im posting but if someone could help.

basically what i need is just the snmp temperatures to work
i don't need the omsa stuff
am i moving to the right direction?
from what i read its the only way for snmp sensors to work is to install omsa.

Thanks in advance
Parastatidis Nikos
