I'm trying to install Intel Beacon Mountain on Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) 64-bit.
But the installer complained about it is not a supported OS. The installer only supports 12.04, 12.10 and 13.04. I looked at the script, but eventually it runs another installer (binary executable), and it seems to check the Ubuntu version itself. I just gave it a try to modify
/etc/issue.net, but as expected, I had no luck.
I'm not sure what mechanism the installer use to check OS version. Maybe lsb_release?
Is there any general approach to trick the OS version?
Actually, I don't have much interest in installing Beacon Mountain, but I want to know the way to trick the OS version.
