    Thank you very much for the post.

    I’ve been trying to install packstack on a Centos 6.6 and have experienced some issues due to epel repo. Thanks to your last Note on the Sample OUTPUT I have enabled the repo list for all the other packages since this was tough to do it for all the packages, and it’s working. I can see all of the packages installing.

    The Centos 7 URL above is for the pre-release beta which is now incorrect. The following command worked for me:

    yum install -y http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-2.noarch.rpm
