Dell SNMP .mib files in Debian

Dear List,

Now that we are talking about Dell, Debian and MIB's, I was hoping one of 
you could help me with the following (I hope this is the right list for 

I've downloaded the Dell MIBs from the Dell website (DCMIB54.exe), which 
contains a bunch of .mib files. I've extracted these in 
/usr/share/snmp/mibs on both my SNMP server and the server running my SNMP 
client, but it still doesn't seem to pick them up properly:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public ligeti Unknown Object Identifier 
(Sub-id not found: enterprises -> dell)
snmpwalk -v 2c -c public ligeti
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892. = INTEGER: 5
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892. = INTEGER: 8
SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.674.10892. = INTEGER: 0
... (a lot of more lines)

All the installed mibs are being mentioned in /usr/share/snmp/mibs/.index, 
but when I strace the snmpwalk, I only see them being read once (the first 
time I've put them in the directory), and the next time(s) I run the 
snmpwalk, they aren't even touched.

It would be really nice if someone could point me in the right direction 
for this one.

Met vriendelijke groet / With kind regards,
