I wanted to install racadm on my local (non-Dell) workstation running Fedora 11. I tried installing via the repos as per the instructions, but without success. I eventually managed by downloading manually:
wget http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/OMSA_6.1/platform_independent/rh50_64/racadm/mgmtst-racadm-6.1.0-648.i386.rpm yum localinstall mgmtst-racadm-6.1.0-648.i386.rpm
The next problem was that racadm wouldn't run – it failed with the error:
ERROR: Failed to initialize transport
Running under strace showed that it seemed to be having problems finding a suitable ssl library – probably because racadm is i686 and I'm running it on x86_64. Using yum provides I determined that a suitable ssl lib was shipped with Adobe Reader, installed in /opt/Adobe/ on my workstation.
The following couple of symlinks fixed it:
ln -s ../../opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libssl.so.0.9.8 /lib/i686/ ln -s ../../opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.8 /lib/i686/
