Why do we need centos 8 immediately?  I'd rather wait 6 months for all of the centos 8 bugs to be fixed.

I'll give you an example.

I recently upgraded my (bare metal) server, but unfortunately CentOS 7 uses a really old Linux kernel, so my 16-core CPU stays throttled because it thinks that each core is 50 degrees hotter than it actually is!

I looked into it, and the only solution is to upgrade to a newer Linux kernel above ______ (I forgot the version offhand) but as long as I'm stuck on CentOS 7, my CPU is going to run slow because the system thinks it's overheating. 2200 MHz per core instead of the usual max 3800 MHz per core!

So yes, we need CentOS 8.

Have you tried to upgrade to the latest Kernel?
As of this message it is at 5.3.11, which I am currently running on CentOS 7.7.1908 without problems and CWP.

That might resolve your problem with the CPUs.
Mine are running at 3792 MHz.

---
As of 14NOV19:

CPU Details: 1 Core (3792 MHz)
Distro Name: CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)
Kernel Version: 5.3.11-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64
CWPpro version: 0.9.8.918

It looks like you don't necessarily need a new Centos version, but a new kernel.

Check this:

It's fairly simple to install.

when centos 8 is released, we will have to test before we make of it.
But surely there will centos 8 version of CWP

Hi, it would be possible if CentOS can be upgraded from 7 to 8. For example, you are unable to upgrade CentOS 6 => CentOS 7

Hi "evansa" and "Igor S.", do you have any news regarding the release date of CWP and CWP Pro for Centos 8 ?

Thanks in advance for the support.

it's too new and still has many things missing...but if you need centos 8 then you can try to install it manually and enjoy many issues you will have with it...but you can look that as a project which would allow you to play and compile many custom service to get all working.
