SAPInst does not match RHEL 5

SAP Solution manager 4.0 SR3:

OS: Linux RHEL 5 (64bits)




during SAPinst the Prerequisites Checker does not match Linux RHEL 5:

The Prerequisites Checker found out:

/etc/redhat-release: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.1 (Tikanga),

whereas only Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (REHL4) is listed in the Checker als supported Red Hat Linux distribution

step 2:

so I modified:

/etc/redhat-release: Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant)

After this modification the Checker found the LINUX Distribution (RHEL4) ok, but missed now saplocales package that is required for RHEL4.

step 3:

I modified again, with the same result of unknown LINUX distribution RHEL5

/etc/redhat-release: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.1 (Tikanga)

What can I do to run the Prerequisites Checker now with the right LINUX distribution Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.1?
