why does SlickStack only support KVM servers?

ss-installwizard is saying the KVM virtualization is required, why??December 4, 2022 at 2:35 pm #3240MarilynGuest
KVM is not “required” since SlickStack is just bash scripts… I mean you can run the setup script on any Linux server you want via SSH/shell
but just that KVM is strongly recommended instead of like Xen, OpenVZ etcDecember 4, 2022 at 2:40 pm #3242NancyGuest
Xen, OpenVZ, Virtuozzo… you can try any you want, but SlickStack community will not “help” you if you are having problems because of the non-KVM server
We don’t test non-KVM servers… we believe KVM is the future of cloud servers, at least for next several years.
If you find a bug or config in SlickStack that is causing problems with these other virtualizations you can open a GitHub issue and we are happy to make small changes if it means better support for other environments, but we just don’t prioritize testing them.December 4, 2022 at 2:51 pm #3243AndrewGuestDecember 4, 2022 at 2:52 pm #3244RonaldGuest
Xen is fine but if you are doing kernel-level optimization like SlickStack it certainly makes things easier to focus more on one environment (KVM)December 5, 2022 at 7:46 am #3249MarkGuest
KVM is awesomeDecember 5, 2022 at 7:48 am #3250LarryGuest
I think Amazon AWS is the only large cloud still focused on Xen.December 8, 2022 at 8:31 pm #3353AustinGuest
Vultr is 100% KVMJanuary 20, 2023 at 9:45 pm #3850GeraldGuest
so does Slickstack technically work fine on XEN boxes too?
