I’m playing around Docker and ERPNext, based on existing work and projects. I had troubles with Ansible playbook on Debian Jessie and CentOS7, somewhere around bench init. I had been successful with Ubuntu.
Problem with Ubuntu is that, as you may know, Ubuntu LTS versions only support a subset of available packages during 5 years. Many others are supported 3 years or, worst, only 9 months after the release.
It seems that few dozens of bench required packages are only supported 9 months, opening them to security flaws and issues (even on Ubuntu 16.04). I’ve not found a list of supported packages from Ubuntu and methods to list unsupported ones are tricky.
What do you think about that ? Maybe betting on Debian may be a good alternative (as Debian now has 5 years serious support for the whole repository…) ?
Thanks for reading.
