I started on a second computer last evening to try Centos/Allstar as a base.
I used the Acid disk.  I was able to get a lot of the prerequisites
installed but a few are eluding me. I added the repoforge repository to my
machine which houses a bunch of the general linux program parts that are
needed. Most were able to be installed with yum.


I ran out of time so still have more to build. I am keeping notes on what
was in Acid and what I had to add
I am scraping build information from a
couple places. CentOS without a GUI does make it more difficult to build
some of this but in the long run will probably be a better more compact


I saw that ACID has a python 2.4 directory as you noted
 I will be running
into the same issue I am sure. What the answer is I found notes about making
a symbolic link to point the machine path to the correct python directory (
kind of an alias thing) so it can find the correct version. The notes were
relative to python 3. Something relative to newer builds on Arch Linux which
is a bleeding edge version of RHEL of which CentOS is a clone. 

                I do agree that the build docs need some updating and more
concise details if versions are an issue.. I see they are circa 2009-2010
ish so makes for some stumbling along the way.

I started with ACID, figuring it has to work there, so... 

If we want this to work with the most popular Allstar distro, someone has to
get it built on there and then publish how. While not quite a novice, I am
not experienced enough to get it working. I also find that people that write
instructions for building things on linux tend to assume their audience
already knows how to build it!
