I think it is safe to ignore lsb-release. In fact, there seems to be a
command "lsb_release" that gives information about distribution. On my
SuSE box, this is what I get:

marvin:~# lsb_release -i
Distributor ID: SUSE LINUX
marvin:~# lsb_release -d
Description:    SUSE LINUX 10.1 (i586)
marvin:~# lsb_release -r
Release:        10.1

sapetnioc, can you check if this command exists on your system and if
so, it's output? platform.dist() can check for this command's existence
and if present, can perhaps use it to glean distro information. Please
let me know if you want to write the patch. I will do it otherwise.
