Good afternoon,

I'm having a hell of a time trying to get Dell OMSA 6.1 installed on a
PowerEdge 1950 running CentOS 4.8 x86_64. When I run the bootstrap the
following happens.

# wget -q -O - | bash

No handlers could be found for logger "trace.libsmbios_c.smbios"


If I then try to install the meta packge srvadmin-all via yum, it just
says "Nothing to do" and exits.

I'm also having the same issues trying to intall OMSA 5.5 which I know
should work. Is there something with CentOS 4.8 maybe thats preventing this?

Thanks in advance for advice anyone has.
