in fact this is 5.4.0 but on other machines I think we have 5.5
running, I'm using debian packages from sara.nl,
before instaling omsa you have to make sure ipmit is working, without
this sensors ect. won't work, enabling ipmi later won't help
(omsa sets it's own ipmi config during install, so reinstall wont help
if it was installed on a system without working ipmi, you have to
remove and install omsa again)

If You want only to monitor sensors, not configure anything ipmitool
might be simpler then omsa (ipmitool sel list, ipmitool sdr required
modules ipmi_si, ipmi_devintf)
