Currently, Ops support various forms of UNIX operating systems.

  • MacOS

  • Debian

  • Ubuntu

  • Fedora

  • Centos

Installing OPS

$ curl -sSfL | sh

If the script complain about missing HomeBrew on Mac, please install it from and re-run the command above.

On Linux flavors ensure that you have QEMU version 2.5 or greater installed.

Debian / Ubuntu (apt-get)

To install QEMU, run the following command:

$ sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm qemu-utils

Fedora (dnf/yum)

$ sudo dnf update
$ sudo dnf install qemu-kvm qemu-img


$ sudo yum update
$ sudo yum install qemu-kvm qemu-img

Verify the OPS Installation

$ ops version

Note: During the installation setup the PATH will be configured, and already open command shell windows may not be updated with these PATH modifications until the console is restarted or the user has logged out and in again.

If running ops version in the console fails, try source ~/.bash_profile or open a new terminal.
