When is CDP going to support Rocky Linux?

Rising Star

Hello everyone.
Since CentOS 8 has been discontinued more than a year ago, and Rocky Linux / Alma Linux have been left occupying the same role as free RHEL's mirror distributions, I would like to know if Cloudera has already a date scheduled in the near future to start supporting any of these distributions as a base operating system for CDP base and related products.


Thanks in advance

They will announce the general availability of Rocky Linux 8.7 soon. This release is currently available for the x86-64 and AArch64 architectures.
