Rocky Linux 8

Post by VAXman65 » 29 May 2021 21:35

With Rocky Linux (https://rockylinux.org/) arriving as the heir to the CentOS mantle (downstream community edition), will eFa be supporting this distribution?

I've been able to install it on Rocky Linux 8.

You need to modify the file /etc/redhat-release,
change the word 'Rocky' with 'CentOS' before running the installer.

The install works fine on my Rocky.

I've upgraded from CentOS 8 to Rocky 8.4 and 8.5. eFa4 works great. No issues. This is much easier upgrade/migration path then moving to debian. And Rocky 8 is with support until "Planned EOL: 31st May 2029".
The eFa installer script needs an addition to detect Rocky as OS and update eFa4 repo url to update CentOS in Rocky.
