HI All,

I have a question regarding the supported platforms for the diskimage-builder tool.

I’ve been using Ubuntu for image generation lately, and that seems to work fine.  

At some point, I had hoped to run DIB on CentOS (6.4), but ran into problems when I tried this.  In particular, the default Python version included in CentOS 6.4 is 2.6.6, and it looks like DIB requires at least 2.7.  

Yesterday, I saw the following bug posting: 


in which it looks like DIB may be running on CentOS 6.5.  

Has anyone had any luck in getting diskimage-builder to run on CentOS?  If so, is there any online documentation that explains the configuration/patches required to make this work?
