I deploy openmanage without its web gui. Openmanage consumes far fewer
resources when installed this way:

tar -xzf om_410_lnx_managed_system_A00.tar.gz
cd omsw
TERM=vt100 DISPLAY="" /bin/bash -license -noinstallweb -force

I create a trivial RPM with Dell's tarball and references to the
installer and uninstaller shell scripts. It's still messy in the sense
that rpm --verify knows little about the installed Openamage files but
at least an RPM carrier makes it easy to add to a distribution.
