Oracle Installation Issues:
These products are
derived from SUSE Linux Enterprise code base but
there are some minor package changes, which
causes Oracle Installer to think differently.

Derived Products
Example – SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for
VMWare

/etc/SuSE-release is same but /etc/issue has “for VMWare”
extra string:
Welcome to SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2
for VMware
(x86_64) - Kernel \r(\l).

Package sles-release is renamed to SLES-for-VMware-
release which provides above two files. This confuses
Oracle Installer (OUI) to think it's not an SLES11.

Fix:
Change “CV_ASSUME_DISTRID=SUSE11” in file

../database/stage/cvu/cv/admin/cvu_config

(Refer Novell TID 7008274 or Novell Bug#680159)
