    How to skip the check of Operating System when installing SFX?

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: SFX
    • Product Version: 3

    I need to install a new installation of SFX on our in-house server. I have found the following error when trying to run the installation script.
    [ SFX Setup ]
    Installation directory: /exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx_version_3
    Log file: /exlibris/sfx_ver/sfx_version_3/tmp/setup.log

    [ 1 ] Operating System analysis.
    This system information:
    version:#1 SMP Wed Nov 7 14:08:51 EST 2007
    Data from /etc/redhat-release: Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 6)
    Unsupported 'Nahant Update' version '6' for release 'ES 4' at ./ line 495.

    Sorry, this system is not supported.

    ERROR: Setup failed
    What can we do?

    1. Verify that the operating system you are installing on is supported according to the installation guide.

    2. Run the installer program with the following syntax:

    ./sfx_version_3_<OS_NAME> -- --skiposcheck

    Additional Information

    OS Nahant Update --skiposcheck installation
