On a system that is currently running a Linux* operating system, follow the instructions below to determine if your system’s processor and EFI firmware is capable of running Clear Linux* OS. Otherwise, run Clear Linux as a Live image and then perform the steps below.

Note

This does not check other system components (for example: storage and graphics) for compatibility with Clear Linux OS.

  1. Download the clear-linux-check-config.sh file.

    If a browser is not available, use:

    curl -O https://download.clearlinux.org/current/clear-linux-check-config.sh
    
  2. Make the script executable.

    chmod +x clear-linux-check-config.sh
    
  3. Run the script.

    1. Check to see if the host’s processor and EFI firmware is capable of running Clear Linux OS.

      ./clear-linux-check-config.sh host
      
    2. Check to see if the host is capable of running Clear Linux OS in a container.

      ./clear-linux-check-config.sh container
      

    The script will print a list of test results similar to the output below. All items should return a SUCCESS status. This example indicates the host’s processor and EFI firmware support running Clear Linux OS.
