Icom's G2 gateway software was based on Centos5 but their newer G3
gateway software uses Centos7. Here is a URL that might help
answer some of your questions:
It's worth mentioning that I understand that Icom has a new G4
software stack in Beta. I think it's been in Beta for a while now
and I have no idea when they might release it. There is also a
question around Centos's charter change around Centos 8 vs. Centos
Stream but we'll have to see what comes of that.

I'm probably off-base here, but hopefully someone can point me in
the right direction...
I have an Icom D-Star DV repeater (eg, ID-RP4000V and ID-RP2C).
The gateway software (which apparently requires Centos 5!) seems
to not have been updated in a decade or so....But I'm not finding
any other instructions on how to enable this perfectly good
hardware to participate in a D-Star network.
Can a component of DV Switch provide the IP interface that the
controller is looking for to allow this RF system to be fully
D-Star enabled (connected)? If not, is there another project or
direction I should look before trying to build a Centos 5 VM and
find the ancient versions of software that the Icom CD that
shipped with the repeater requires?
I greatly appreciate your help!
