I use './ -license -noinstallweb -noweb' to install OMSA
om410_lnx_managed....tar.gz  (aka OMSA v1.9.0) on our systems with no X.

Try adding the -noweb option to your command line.

I am having trouble getting om420_lnx_managed_system_A00.tar.gz to
install in a silent manner from the machine's console.

I'm using the command line:
  dell/omsw/ -license -silent -nosnmpsets -noinstallweb

First it fails because the script tries to open an XTerm.

When I set TERM=screen to avoid that issue, the install fails because an
X library ( is not present.

If I copy an old from the 4.0.1 System Mangement cd (latest
I had handy), and create an installer, I avoid the first problem.
However, there is still the X library error.

Any one know of a workaround to avoid installing the X libraries?
