Issue/Introduction

This list outlines all Symantec Endpoint Protection for Linux (SEPFL) 14 releases and which Linux distribution(s) and kernel version(s) for which precompiled drivers (modules) for Auto-Protect are included in the SEP for Linux version package.

This list is NOT meant to be used to determine if a specific Linux distro and kernel version combination are ultimately supported by the SEP for Linux client. If the SEP for Linux installer does not include precompiled kernel drivers for Auto-Protect for the Linux distro and kernel version, an automatic process will attempt to compile the specific kernel drivers for Auto-Protect during the install process.

Resolution

This list should not be considered complete and exclusive. Unless specified otherwise, kernel versions apply to both 32- and 64-bit kernels. Linux operating systems and kernels that do not appear on this list may successfully install and enable the Auto-Protect kernel module.

Before assuming the kernel isn't supported, test with the latest version of Symantec Endpoint Protection for Linux. If you find an issue with an auto-compiled AP module, open a case with Broadcom Support. The support team will work with Engineering to evaluate any compatibility issues on a case-by-case basis.

Note: Red Hat introduced RETPOLINE to their kernel starting with 3.10.0-693.21.1.el7.x86_64 to provide Spectre2 mitigation support. As of 14.2 MP1, our Auto-Protect startup script will not load pre-built AP kernel modules build with the CONFIG-RETPOLINE flag. Instead Auto-Compile will be triggered. This is to address an issue in which kernel modules not compiled with config_retpoline aware compilers will cause a kernel panic.

Linux operating system kernel versions

The following Linux operating system kernel versions have been tested and should successfully install and enable the precompiled kernel modules for Auto-Protect, or successfully install and enable the auto-compiled kernel modules for Auto-Protect:
