Hi Ted, Hi Jörg,

Scientific Linux and Centos are both RedHat Clones. I also run OMD with
Oracle Linux and it works as well.

If you like you could move /opt/omd to someplace else and you only have
to point the symlink /omd/ to the new location.

> So I thought, maybe it just needs a symlink.  I created one with “ln –s /opt/omd /omd”.
That should be created by the preinstall scriptlet of omd.rpm.

What version of util-linux-ng do you use? You need 2.17.2-12.9_el6_4.3
because that fixes a bug with mount and it looks like you run into that.
