Rocky Linux available

Rocky Linux is available since yesterday and I took a quick look.
It is available a minimum ISO like CentOS and there is also a Docker image available.

I have installed it and it really looks & feels like CentOS 8.
And for the Domino Docker Community Image I just cloned the CentOS 8 dockerfile.
So now you can also build your Domino container based on Rocky Linux.
https://rockylinux.org/


At first glance it just works and if someone really wants to move to Rocky Linux, the support statement for Rocky Linux and CentOS 8 is the same.
It has not been tested by HCL but it meets the support requirements and should work.

If you want to build your Domino image with Rocky Linux you just have to switch to the development branch of our Git community image and use the following command-line

./build.sh domino dockerfile_rocky

The docker image they provide is properly labeled and the /etc/os-release file looks like this:

NAME="Rocky Linux"
VERSION="8.4 (Green Obsidian)"
ID="rocky"
ID_LIKE="rhel fedora"
VERSION_ID="8.4"
PLATFORM_ID="platform:el8"
PRETTY_NAME="Rocky Linux 8.4 (Green Obsidian)"
ANSI_COLOR="0;32"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:rocky:rocky:8.4:GA"
HOME_URL="https://rockylinux.org/"
BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.rockylinux.org/"
ROCKY_SUPPORT_PRODUCT="Rocky Linux"
ROCKY_SUPPORT_PRODUCT_VERSION="8"

Building a Rocky 8 server now, to install HCL Domino 12 on.

Not a production machine, but added to our existing 11.03 environment for testing (and hopefuly eventually migration)
