CSF on Rocky Linux

Hi all!

Now that Rocky Linux is at an RC1, I'd like to ask about getting officially supported by CSF as a distribution, similarly to RHEL and CentOS. It is built off of the RHEL source code, and is aiming to be binary compatible with it. i.e. if it works on RHEL and CentOS, it works on Rocky.

If someone could let me know what would need to be done in order to reach that goal, I would be very appreciative.

We can confirm that csf (and indeed cxs) work without issue on RockyLinux RC1.

You will likely need to enable the powertools repository and install epel-release. The only perl module required not mentioned in the installer is perl-Math-BigInt.noarch.

Ah, so it should pretty much _just work_ then. Faaantastic :)

I couldn't remember if CSF's installer actually did any checking for host OS, and if that checked the ID field in /etc/os-release or the ID_LIKE field, but if it should pretty much just work, that's brilliant!

Thanks for making such a robust and flexible IPTables script btw :)
