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

KernelCare supports a large number of distributions and kernel versions. List of all supported distributions, kernels, as well as patches for them is available at

However, to be absolutely sure your kernel is supported, we have a simple script that you can run on your server:

It can be executed by running either of these shortened versions:

curl -s | python


wget -qq -O - | python

The response will be one of:

  • COMPATIBLE: kernel supported by KernelCare.
  • UNSUPPORTED: KernelCare doesn’t recognize the kernel.
  • UNSUPPORTED; INSIDE CONTAINER: running inside the container, unable to patch kernel.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch.
