Other Operating Systems

The officially supported operating systems that Kasm Workspaces can be installed on can be found on the System Requirements page . However, Workspaces can be installed on any Linux operating system with bash, openssl, Docker-CE, and docker compose pre-installed. The installation script checks if docker and docker compose are installed, if all the requirements are met the script will bypass operating system checks. Generally, this means that Workspaces can be installed on any Linux based operating system that Docker supports.

RedHat 7

The following instructions show how to install Docker-CE, docker compose, and OpenSSL on RedHat.

sudo yum install -y yum-utils device-mapper-persistent-data lvm2 openssl wget
sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo
sudo bash -c "cat > /etc/yum.repos.d/centos-extras.repo" << EOL
name=Centos extras - $basearch
sudo sed -i 's#\$releasever#7#g' /etc/yum.repos.d/docker-ce.repo
sudo yum install -y docker-ce
sudo systemctl enable --now docker.service
sudo systemctl start docker.service
sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/docker/cli-plugins
sudo curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/v2.5.0/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m) -o /usr/local/lib/docker/cli-plugins/docker-compose
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/lib/docker/cli-plugins/docker-compose
