Could not identify OS distribution
Hello,

I'm trying to install DSS on elementary OS (built on Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS), but I keep getting the following error

[+] Creating data directory: DATA_DIR
[+] Saving installation log to /home/katerina/DATA_DIR/run/install.log
[+] Using Java at /usr/bin/java : java version "1.8.0_161"
[+] Checking required dependencies
*** Could not identify OS distribution

[-] Dependency check failed

I have also tried -without-java, but it still cannot identify OS distribution.

Do you have any recommendations? Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Katerina.

Hi,

Elementary OS is not a supported Linux distribution for DSS.

You can try the following (run from the DSS installation directory)

* Install dependencies by forcing OS detection: sudo -i ./scripts/install/install-deps.sh -os ubuntu 16.04

* Then run the normal DSS installation procedure without dependency check: add "-n" to the arguments of installer.sh

Hello,

This command line did not work for linux mint 19.1, do you have other alternative?

Thanks

Hi,

You'll need to install dependencies substantially equivalent to the normal requirements on supported OS: see https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/installation/new_instance.html#red-hat-centos-oracle-linux-distri...for an indicative list

Then you need to run the installer.sh with "-n" flag to ignore dependencies check
