OMSA 2 deb

The Sara OMSA Debian/Ubuntu? package is a recreation of the Dell Open Manage Server Administrator package suit. From the Dell rpm packages we created one Deb based package suitable for most Debian/Ubuntu? systems.

For now we have two release:

  1. 5.5.0 works on debian distributions etch and higher, tested on 1850, 1950 and m600
  2. 6.0.1 works in debian distributions lenny and higher, tested on 1850, 1950, m600 and m610
