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 http://patches.kernelcare.com.

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

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

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

curl -s https://kernelcare.com/checker | python

Or

wget -qq -O - https://kernelcare.com/checker | 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.
