Description Allison Karlitskaya (desrt) 2014-02-12 00:02:37 UTC
This code:

    osx = commands.getoutput('sw_vers -productVersion')
    if osx:
        return 'Mac OS X ' + osx;

in results in seeing this on the summary page:

Distribution       Mac OS X sw_vers: not found

if the lsb/os-release checks above it fail.
Comment 1 Allison Karlitskaya (desrt) 2014-02-12 00:03:51 UTC
The output of 'uname' or the value of python's "sys.platform" would both probably make reasonable fallback values...
Comment 2 John Ralls 2014-02-12 03:37:31 UTC
sys.platform == 'darwin' is the right way to do it. Shelling out is expensive, and there's no reason to do so.
Comment 3 Allison Karlitskaya (desrt) 2015-01-03 20:33:32 UTC
Bug 742267 obsoletes this complaint.
