Issues with OpenManage + CentOs 5.4

In OM 6.1 we removed many of the install blockages.  In the past, the installation scripts would prevent installation on any unsupported distribution or version.  In 6.1, these checks have been replaced with standard RPM dependency checks.  At run time, there are a few checks within our processes to ensure that we are running on Dell hardware that is not too old.  Note that the ability to install on a version/distribution does not imply that it is officially supported or that it will work.

The net of this is that you should be able to install OMSA on SELinlux if the RPMs we are dependent on are installed.  I believe there is a good chance OMSA will work, but no guarantees.  Try it and see.
