I used this to get Vertica 6 CE working on Ubuntu 12.04. I would expect it to work for any Ubuntu/Vertica version combo as long as you edit line 8 to expect the correct text from /etc/debian_version. Thanks for posting this, really helped me out!

This patch helped me get past one error, but i hit another.
I have ubuntu 12.04 and had to modify the patch to SystemProfileFactory.py to match the contents of my
/etc/debian_version which was wheezy/sid

(status, res) = ssh.execute("grep "wheezy" /etc/debian_version", hide=True)

This fixed the UnsupportedOsException error, but then i got the following running install_vertica with and without any commandline options:
I added a print statement to SSH.py to see what json object was trying to load. It seems it might be missing a braces match.
Have to look into it some more...
