Backup Exec System Recovery Linux Edition may fail to install on SUSE or Red Hat Linux systems with an unsatisfied dependencies error.
The symbdsnap rpm has a test in the postinstall script that checks the SUSE or Red Hat version in /etc/issue. Some sys-admins will replace this with some other text to hide the OS information, or to display custom text such as a login privacy disclaimer.
Placing the operating system information - i.e. "Red Hat" back into /etc/issue will allow the program to install successfully.
