There is hack to solve this when installing with Scientific Linux.

Edit the provided install script to include the the correct output for rpm -qf /etc/issue for your particular binary compatible distro

you will a case statement in the install scrip and this fails if it doesn't recognize your distro

for example chang the lines:

        redhat-release-server-6Server-6.3*|centos-release-6-3*)
        distro=rhel6.3
        dist_rpm=rhel6u3

to:

        redhat-release-server-6Server-6.3*|centos-release-6-3*|sl-release-6.3*)
        distro=rhel6.3
        dist_rpm=rhel6u3
