Hi Mark, Hi Martin,
nope, to my experience, the hassle of setting up PyBOMBS' requirements
and then hand-fixing the non-working PyBOMBS recipes on CentOS6.5 is not
compensated by the trouble saved. This starts with ancient python on
Centos6, continues with under-circumstances-non-SSL-capable
python-requests, continues with build time dependencies and so on.
Mark, you can of course have a prefix (i.e. something that contains a
set of libraries, most of which you've build and installed yourself) in
your CentOS6.5 that can contain a sufficiently modern python, boost,
cmake, python-mako, and so on, but to be honest, that would be like a
manually managed distro within your CentOS6.5 installation. To be
honest, CentOS 7 has been out for 3 years and 12 days; I think it might
be safe to say that it might be time to update, if you're installing new
software on your system. Full update support of CentOS6 has ceased
mid-May this year. (Security updates will continue for years; this is
RedHat-land, where security-relevant updates are guaranteed for decades,
but you can't assume that new software will work with a decade-old system.)
