FWIW, we have OMSA 6.5.0-1 working on a lot of systems with Debian 
Squeeze and various kernels (but mostly 2.6.32-5-amd64). We find OMSA 
valuable in that it provides data for monitoring (we use 
check_openmanage with Nagios), and allows configuration of BIOS options 
and similar. However, for RAID monitoring and management, we mostly use 
MegaCli/megasasctl, rather than the OMSA provided stuff.
