We discussed this on this same mailing list earlier today ...
Hmmm, I thought it was on this thread ... but apparently it was on a
similarly named list called cockpit-devel-owner which I didn't even know
So here's a summary:
The build failures one sees when building cockpit on RHEL 6 are just the
beginning. Yes, that's just the tip of the Iceberg. It would take some
one a couple months of work to get things in shape for running CentOS 6
or RHEL 6.
And once that work is done most of the actual user interface parts
would not be relevant ... due to missing system APIs, such as systemd,
NetworkManager, storaged, libssh ... and so on.
However it's possible and I don't know of anyone who's against this
work. It is possible to get to a point where Cockpit loads and displays
a rudimentary display and configuration, and a terminal.
For anyone who wants to drive this forward and doesn't want to wait, the
first steps to take are here:
