Supported Linux distributions

There are two officially supported Linux distributions:

  • Debian 11

Users have reported that PyStan works on several other Linux distributions. If you use an unsupported distribution and find that the PyPI wheels do not work, try installing httpstan from source. Once httpstan is installed, PyStan should work.
