When is CDP going to support Rocky Linux?

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.

Hi ! I tried to install CDP 7.4.4 trial version on an Rocky 8.7  but installer refuse.

Did you do any trick to "bypass" the installer os check ? its on an x86-64 machine/s

I have checked this internally currently it's not supported for CDP as of now but we have an internal Jira to test and certify this in the future.

if you want to force cdp onto rocky8:

echo "ID_LIKE=\"Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.7 (Ootpa)\"" >> /etc/rocky-release 
this fixes install-agents hang

echo "ID=\"rhel\"" >> /usr/lib/os-release
this fixes install-parcels hang
removing this ID var from os-release after deployment will cause hadoop to fail restart
