Get the latest version in our Git, and type "make install". It's still
experimental (I worked on it only since yesterday seeing how much this
is a need for many), but there should be so many things to fix now. I'd
appreciate help on finishing the work (which now is mainly testing...).

Then what??? We are talking about the dom0 support here, not at all
about the domU. Why do you think we took over the maintainership of the
yum package in Debian? Precisely to be able to bootstrap CentOS domU
from a Debian dom0.



I think you miss the point. I don't want to learn Debian, nor am I going to teach my client's a new distro either. I purely voiced my concerns as to why I won't use this program, it doesn't run on CentOS.
And even if I only need to install it on the dom0, and then install a CentOS domU, I would prefer to run it on a CentOS box since I know CentOS very well.
