Will EOS run on Ubuntu 18.04? In the docs 16.04 is explicitly listed, so am wondering if 18.04 is supported.
I've compiled and run it without any problems on Ubuntu 18.04, which is great because it's an LTS. We're asking for an DEB package (see https://github.com/EOSIO/eos/issues/1021) to make it easier to install. It's planed to be supported in the near future.
From the Dawn 4.2 release notes:
Following last week’s change to the token symbol, we added the ability to specify the core token symbol in the Dockerfile. We also switched to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS for the Docker builder image.
I have been running a testnet on Ubuntu 18.04 (w/out Docker) and haven't encountered any issues related to OS or version.
