LSI Megaraid Storage Manager Does Nothing

Installing Broadcom MSM for LSI Megaraid Cards

On a minimal CentOS install I found that MSM would refuse to load when I ran “/usr/local/MegaRAID\ Storage\ Manager/”.  It would just exit without an error.  If you cat the script you will notice java running into /dev/null, thus hiding useful errors—so remove the redirect!  At least then we can see the error.

Since this was a minimal install, I was missing some of the X libraries that MSM wanted.  This fixed it:

yum install libXrender libXtst
