CentOS 8 Stream installation


I’m trying to put together a couple Zeek instances on hardware that doesn’t support CentOS 7. I could install el7, but am afraid of it being unsupported on the architecture and possible problems that may arise. As well as any potential issues troubleshooting with the vendor.

I saw in the documentation that el8 is supported with rpm packages, but the repositories are empty and there is failed builds on Show security:zeek - openSUSE Build Service stating unresolvable issues.

What would be the recommendation to work around this? Or is there work on a newer release that successfully builds for el8? Our infrastructure is built primarily around supporting CentOS, and to an extent, rhel, so although we can rebuild with another OS, we’d like to try an avoid that.
