Cloudmin GPL install fails on fresh Centos 7 box

I have a fresh install of Centos 7. I have already installed Xen, using these instructions: https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Xen/Xen4QuickStart

I downloaded cloudmin-gpl-redhat-install.sh but it seems to want to install Centos 6 stuff.

Specifically, it says: "Enabling Xen kernel repo for CentOS 6 " which is not gonna work. The install script fails a few lines later.

Below is the result when I run the install script.

Please advise if there's anything I can do to help solve the problem.

Thanks! -Bob

Hi Jamie,

Thanks for your comment. Short story, different error but still failed. FYI I checked the bios, all virtualization is turned on. CPU is a Xeon e3-1270.

Just so you know I'm just kicking the tires on the box for now. If you want me to reload Centos 7 and let you log in and mess around, I'm fine with that.

Thanks, -Bob

Sorry to be shooting from the hip, but I think I'm set for now. I did an OS reload. Trying to install Xen had the same problem, but I got KVM to work without too much trouble.

So is Cloudmin for Xen not as ready for prime time? The offer to again reload the OS and have you debug the Xen install script is still on the table, but I get the sense that Cloudmin might be more robust with KVM.

For everyday use (mostly Linux and maybe windows guests) I'm thinking they are pretty much the same. Some articles even suggest an advantage for KVM with Linux guests. Thoughts?

Thanks, -Bob
