os_mon depends on sasl, and the above error indicates that sasl hasn't 
been started.

All the rabbit startup scripts we ship do start sasl automatically, so 
it's strange that you see the above. What startup script are you invoking?

Without starting sasl? If I try that I get the following:

$ erl
Erlang R13B03 (erts-5.7.4) [source] [smp:2:2] [rq:2] [async-threads:0] 
[hipe] [kernel-poll:false]

Eshell V5.7.4  (abort with ^G)
1> application:start(os_mon).

which is exactly the same error as above.

By contrast, when starting erlang with sasl enabled (in the same way our 
startup scripts do) I get:

$ erl -boot start_sasl
Erlang R13B03 (erts-5.7.4) [source] [smp:2:2] [rq:2] [async-threads:0] 
[hipe] [kernel-poll:false]

[lots of PROGRESS_REPORTs ...]

1> application:start(os_mon).

[lots more PROGRESS_REPORTs ...]


So I suspect there is something wrong with your startup script.
