Debian 9 “Stretch” is the base kernel used for the edge agent container. It will officially exit LTS in 1 year (June 2022). I’m requesting an upgrade of the kernel version to Buster.
My specific use case would appreciate this primarily due to the factory version of Python available through apt with Stretch is 3.5 which is EOL. So I’m building Python 3.9 from source with a custom Dockerfile. It’s fine…but would certainly appreciate the speed gains from pulling the package from apt instead of building from source on every container image build.
Happy to answer any questions!
