Good afternoon,

I've got Dell OMSA 6.1 install on a PowerEdge 1950 running CentOS 4.8,
however when I go to start OMSA I get the following messages at startup.

Starting ipmi driver: Unsupported version                  [FAILED]

Do I need to install DKMS and install a different version of openipmi?
