I don't have any rpms installed with "ipmi" or "IPMI" in the name, and no ipmi service defined.  It's just strange because I can't reproduce the need for this dependency, so I'm not surprised Dell hasn't defined it, yet it's clearly causing issues for folks...

there are other software packages that implement IPMI (freeipmi?)

There's something funny about this--none of my 1950/2950/610/710 hardware has OpenIPMI installed, yet omreport is working everywhere.
