I know this if very off topic and I don't mean to add fuel to the fire
or gang up on Dell but we're in the same boat.  We spent over a quarter
of a million dollars with Dell last year on Linux systems, all with
extended warranties, support and all that jazz, for nothing!  No one,
and I mean no one that you get on the phone seems to have a clue how to
deal with Linux problems.  Hell, half of them haven't even heard of
Linux and want you to reinstall Windows on the box.

Hmm. I don't want to sound like a whiner herre, but is there actually
anybody at dell who
supports this software? It seems that EVERY release is a major change to
how it works, and
functionality breaks.. Forget calling up tech support and asking for
help (spent $40k on tech
support licensing last year, it's worthless for our needs) .. How
exactly do we find documentation
on what does what with openmanage for linux?

it's no longer in the later OMSA releases.. i assume the functionality
has moved elsewhere.

i've found it in a older release (om33_linux*.gz) but it's definitely
not in om420*.gz
