Hi there,

It will depend on the level of engineering work, if any, Canonical would need to do in order to make it available, when available.

Hi @andreserl,

Thanks for the answer I’m looking forward to see Centos8 available in MAAS.


CentOS 8 still hasn’t been released. Upstream expects it is still a month or two away. Once upstream releases it we will start looking at adding support.


Any updates on this? CentOS 8 has been released now, and I imagine folks have probably had a chance to play with it a bit. Just curious about how it’s going.

I’m finishing up creating a Packer template for CentOS 8 pending on a patch to Curtin. Still waiting on upstream to release official cloud images at http://cloud.centos.org/centos/ so they can be included in the default MAAS stream.


I have posted an update on CentOS/RHEL 8 images.

Hi @ltrager,

UPDATE: After i ask you about template i see this post thanks mate!!!
