After getting the jsdk and tomcat running, I didn't have
any trouble with the opennms rpms and setup.  And it
is worth it to have everything detected automatically
if it would catch all the linux snmpd's correctly.

I've already tried that, and the odd thing is that with
or without it, the snmp info shows up on the node screeen
but some systems are getting performance data collected and
some aren't.   Since this is all automatically detected I
think it may have something to do with timeouts.  Often
if I run snmpwalk against these systems it will return some
data then time out.  Usually if I repeat the command it will
complete the 2nd time.  Perhaps opennms is getting a timeout
and giving up on access.
