I'm trying to install DataFabric Manager, but it won't install:
This is extremely annoying:
[root@dk-aar-toal-laptop tools]# uname -srvm
Linux 184.108.40.206-91.fc14.i686 #1 SMP Tue May 3 13:36:36 UTC 2011 i686
[root@dk-aar-toal-laptop tools]# ./dfmsetup-4-0-2-linux.sh
Unpacking files needed for the installation ...
error: This is not a supported platform.
[root@dk-aar-toal-laptop tools]# cat /etc/issue
Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
Kernel \r on an \m (\l)
Even though Fedora is not supported, it should not just exit like this. I'm not going to run RHEL or any other old-fashioned release on my work laptop, it's just too restrictive. I understand that for a production environment it is necessary to to be sure that everything works, but it should be enough to just make a statement about it not being supported so that people won't use it for production. Right now I have a test environment with 12 filers in it, and no way of using Operations Manager.
Is there any way around this?

Try this as a workaround:
1) cp /etc/redhat-release /etc/redhat-release.old
2) overwrite /etc/redhat-release with something supported like "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Tikanga)" or something similiar.
