The install script triggers zcs_get_plat_tag.sh in bin to find the release version, and the script is hardwired to version numbers. To trick the script, the easiest is to edit /etc/lsb-release and change the DISTRIB_RELEASE to just 6.

(You can do something similar with, for example, Fedora Core 6 and 7 by lowering the version number in /etc/redhat-release.)

Just need to remember to revert the version number back to the original after installation. If you don't want to touch the config files, the alternative is to edit zcs_get_plat_tag.sh. For example, with Ubuntu, find the two lines:

       grep "DISTRIB_RELEASE=6" /etc/lsb-release > /dev/null 2>&1
       if [ $? = 0 ]; then

and replace them with:

       ver=$(grep "DISTRIB_RELEASE" /etc/lsb-release | cut -d= -f2 | cut -d\. -f1)
       if [ ${ver} -ge 6 ]; then
