Fix Problem Installing Lotus Sametime 8.5.2 On unsupported Linux Distribution

    Well, if you are trying to install Lotus Sametime 8.x.x on an unsupported Linux Distro, just like how I did, you will come across this error, "This operating system is not supported."

    Thankfully getting around the system checks Lotus Sametime performs well and made things easy.

    Here is what you need to do, just type the following command on your terminal before running the installer:

    # export STSkipAllChecks=true

    Still having problem installing Lotus Stand Time, Just follow the below official troubleshooting methods.
