When i go to the link, it does not dispaly anything.

My operating system is as below:
hadoop@ubuntu:~/biginsights-basic-linux64_b20121203_1915/installer/bin$ uname -a
Linux ubuntu 2.6.32-38-generic #83-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jan 4 11:13:04 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux

Is it a problem with my OS. I have followed all steps as per the installation video. Please help.

    BigInsights has been tested on RHEL and SuSE platforms. Ubuntu is not in the list. CentOS is very similar to RHEL except that there are few minor differences.

    This is an old thread, but I ran across it and found my answer in a SO thread.  As mentioned above, Ubuntu and CentOS are not supported, but if you want to get past this you just need to run "bash start.sh" instead of "./start.sh" and the installation server will start.  The problem has to do with the version of the shell that is run automatically by the different OSes.
