Installation fails on computers running Red Hat and SuSE Linux

The installation utility is unable to determine the correct target operating system that it is installing to and therefore, fails the installation on computers running Red Hat Linux and SuSE Linux.

To fix the problem

This problem may be the result of edits to the operating system release files. The installation utility uses information stored in these files to determine the target operating system. BMC recommends that you do not edit the release files, because the installation utility may be unable to read the edited files, thus causing the installation to fail. If you must edit the release files, do so by adding additional lines of text and not by editing the existing information stored in the file.
