The easiest way to try OSv locally is to use the Capstan tool to run one of the images from our public repository.
Copy the following bash command and paste it to your terminal
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cloudius-systems/capstan/master/scripts/download | bash
Capstan is now installed.
sudo yum -y install https://repo.cloudrouter.org/1/x86_64/cloudrouter-repo-latest.noarch.rpm sudo yum -y install capstan
