We often get a question whether a particular kernel is supported by KernelCare. We support a large number of distributions and kernel versions, such as CentOS/RHEL/CL 5,6 & 7, Debian, Ubuntu, Virtuozzo & Proxmox VE. List of all supported distributions, kernels, as well as patches for them is available at http://patches.kernelcare.com.
Yet, to simplify the process, we have released a simple script that you can run on your server to find out for sure.
It can be executed by running:
curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iseletsk/kernelchecker/master/py/kc-compat.py|python
wget -qq -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iseletsk/kernelchecker/master/py/kc-compat.py|python
The script will respond with:
- COMPATIBLE -> kernel supported by KernelCare
- UNSUPPORTED -> KernelCare doesn’t recognize the kernel
- UNSUPPORTED; INSIDE CONTAINER -> running inside the container, unable to patch kernel
