Pulled in the right one it appears this time:
dell-omsa-indep 49 M
I can assure you all I ever really do is the:
"yum install $(bootstrap_firmware)"
So as to how we ended up here, maybe I just caught the repo on an off
day :). Who knows, but thanks for working through this with me.
One question I have though, is how are we as mere mortals on a Dell
platform supposed to figure something like this out? Is there any method
to this madness? I mean I doubt I would have noticed a 235 vs. a 236,
often with these dell tools I start to feel a bit windowsish as I
un-install and re-install to correct an issue.
