How to Check if your Kernel is Supported by KernelCare

It is very important to know whether or not a particular kernel is supported by KernelCare. KernelCare supports a large number of distributions and kernel versions, such as CentOS/RHEL/CL 5.6 and 7, Debian, Ubuntu, Virtuozzo, and Proxmox VE.

To simplify the process, a simple script was created that you can run on your server to check if your kernel is supported.

It can be executed by running:

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iseletsk/kernelchecker/master/py/kc-compat.py|python

Or...

wget -qq -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/iseletsk/kernelchecker/master/py/kc-compat.py|python


The script will respond with:

COMPATIBLE -> kernel supported by KernelCare
UNSUPPORTED -> KernelCare does not recognize kernel
NON SUPPORTED; CONTAINER INTERIOR -> in the course of execution of the interior container, impossible to patch the kernel


If you still have questions about checking your kernel compatibility, make sure to contact us by opening a support ticket or by using our live chat feature.
