LFS207 - Is Distribution Rocky8.5-x86_64-minimal.iso OK for this course?


hello everybody !! I recently joined this course . I will be using Rocky8.5-x86_64-minimal as a VM (using Oracle VM Virtual box). I just want to know if this is OK for the course. I know Rocky is somehow compatible with RHEL, which is one of the distros to be used during course.

Please let me know if Rocky is OK.
Thanks a lot!!

    While Rocky should be fine, I cannot guarantee "minimal" will be enough as I'm not sure what packages are in it. You are likely to need to install some more software as you go, but otherwise it should work. Oracle Virtual Box is well tested for this course as a hypervisor.
