Re: Availability of RHEL build of Bexar release of OpenStack Nova
We (Citrix) are installing it on CentOS 5.5 at the moment, so it is possible. (I won't bore you with the train of thought that lead to that act of masochism.)
The main problem is that you need to have parallel Python 2.4 and 2.6 installations, because yum breaks if you try to make 2.6 the primary, but 2.4 is no good for Nova. This means that you end up doing loads of tedious repackaging.
