Datafabric Manager on Linux

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 #1 SMP Tue May 3 13:36:36 UTC 2011 i686

[root@dk-aar-toal-laptop tools]#  ./

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)

[root@dk-aar-toal-laptop tools]#

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.

Thanks Jakub, that did the trick.
