Cent os 7.4 & flame 2022

Hi everyone,
Can I expect a smooth install of the latest version on cent os 7.4 ?
Any hiccups ?

I believe only 7.6 and 8.2 are supported now with Flame 2022. They do provide an “easy update” script to get you to 7.6

Hi @rohankhokar,

@Alan is correct. CentOS 7.4 is not supported with Flame 2022 (only CentOS 7.6 and 8.2 are).

Regards,
Yann

Definitely back up everything first before running that script though and have some buffer time. The easy update script left my system not being able to reboot.

FWIW I had good success updating systems from 7.2 and 7.4 to 7.6 with the Autodesk script, well worth doing to have a somewhat more modern OS.

The real question of course is where is Autodesk going to go now that CentOS is a dead end: AlmaLinux, Rocky Linux, or back to needing a RHEL license…

There’s no upgrade path, it’s an install-from-scratch.

It’d be nice if Ubuntu was the industry standard Linux distro for Post Production. I’m running a few bits of software that specify CentOs though and none of them seem to have a new Linux path. Hope it’s not a case of every developer waiting to see what everyone else does and therefore nobody doing anything…

I’ve got a feeling though that RockyLinux will basically pick up where CentOs was.
