Sorry for the lack of info.

I first tried with the bootstrap.cgi file.

I modified it to think the system is rh5.

From there, bootstrap ask for rhnplugin.

If I install it, I end at this point:

I also tested using the downloadable 400mb package (OM_6.2.0_ManNode_A00.tar.gz)

I modified setup.sh to also return red hat 5.

When I run it:

I only have one choice (Server Administrator Web Server

if I select it and ask for install, I get the following:


Installing the selected packages.

ls: cannot access libsmbios*: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access smbios-utils-bin*: No such file or directory
rpm: no packages given for install


Yum confirms it's there:


Package matching libsmbios-2.2.16-3.1.fc12.x86_64 already installed. Checking for update.
Nothing to do

Package smbios-utils-bin-2.2.16-3.1.fc12.x86_64 already installed and latest version

This is where I stand now.

Thanks a lot
