Linux system requirements from

The recommended OS for operating a storagenode seem to be quite out of date :

CentOS - A maintained version of CentOS 7

Debian - 64-bit version of one of these Debian or Raspbian versions:

  • Buster 10
  • Stretch 9 (stable) / Raspbian Stretch

Fedora - 64-bit version of one of these Fedora versions:

  • 28
  • 29

Ubuntu - 64-bit version of one of these Ubuntu versions:

  • Cosmic 18.10
  • Bionic 18.04 (LTS)
  • Xenial 16.04 (LTS)

Its the minimum supported versions so keeping them up to date does not make sense. I know clients that still use Windows XP (irrelevant here) :slight_smile:

Yes and no. Instead of saying “Fedora 28 or 29”, I would just write “Fedora 28 or newer”


Well, in particular, CentOS 7 goes EOL June 2024. So no more updates.
Fedora is only supported for 6/12 months? So that should be versions 39 or 40
Ubuntu 18.10 isn’t an LTS version so it will be impossible to update it

I don’t know about debian, I’ll check … debian stretch is EOL too
