KernelCare supports many distributions, but does it work with your kernel?

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.

https://github.com/iseletsk/kernelchecker/blob/master/py/kc-compat.py

It can be executed by running:

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iseletsk/kernelchecker/master/py/kc-compat.py|python

Or ...

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

Kcarectl reports "Unknown kernel" for CentOS Linux 3.10.0-957.1.3.el7
Will this kernel be supported soon or should I revert to an older version?

Any plans to ever support OVH custom kernels?

We would love to add OVH custom kernel support, but OVH is not really interested in it at this point. Our experience is that vendor support is critical for such things. So, if you post a ticket with OVH that you would like to see KernelCare supporting their kernels in the future -- it will help us bring KC to OVH.
