  1. All supported operating systems are tested with general access versions (GA). Ubuntu Hardware Enablement (HWE) is not supported. By default, HWE is disabled by Ubuntu Server versions and enabled by Desktop versions.
  2. Ubuntu Live Patch Service might apply kernel patches automatically. XRT is not tested against live patches. To prevent compatibility issues, turn off kernel auto-upgrade.
Note: During installation, the kernel-headers package is required. CentOS only provides the kernel-headers package for some releases. XRT only supports CentOS OS versions that provide kernel-headers packages.
Note: For details about OS versions tested by AMD and their kernel versions, see the XRT 2023.1 Tested Operating Systems Answer Record.
