I am attempting to get OMSA running on Debian. I've run into a problem 
that has been encountered on the list before (titled "OMSA : unresolved 
symbol local_bh_enable) , but there doesn't seem to be a solution.
It is mentioned in the thread that using's kernels 
(2.4.24 and 2.4.25) solved the issue.
I've used both 2.4.25 from as well as 2.4.26 from Debian 
(unstable), no luck with either.
I get the messages below:
Setting up dellomsa-drivers (4.120-3925) ...

Building device driver for running kernel:                 [OK]

Loading Server Administrator Device Drivers:               [FAILED]

Running kernel is not supported.
See Dynamic Kernel Support in the Server Administrator readme.txt file.

Run rpm using the -e option to clean up the RPM database. Enter:
rpm -e dellomsa-drivers-4.120-3924

dellomsa-drivers-4.120-3924.i386.rpm: Upgrade was NOT successful! ERROR 

dpkg: error processing dellomsa-drivers (--configure):
  subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 44
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

ouput from `modprobe esm`:
unresolved symbol local_bh_enable

Any suggestions as to why it's not working?
