That's not true, and already discussed on this threat. I'm on Debian and my
user agent doesn't include nothing about Debian, please put
more attention to the thread the next time before talking.

Would it be possible for systems that are not fully identifiable, to add
a button 'Determine My Distro', that initiates a system command (like
'uname -a' or something), of course warning the user what will happen
beforehand... ?

If not, why not just ask the user: "We have detected that you are
running [Linux][xBSD][whatever], but cannot determine the Distribution -
please select from the list, or enter it here:"

And/or then present the user with a list of choices, one of them being
'I know what I'm doing, let me pick from the available packages'
