Hi Johan,

When we started the CentOS port/build for armv7hl, our initial goal
was "Minimal" (aka being able to install the @core group). Obviously
we had much more packages built directly, but it's true that some
packages are still missing. That's where you can help : apart from
http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7/os/armhfp/ (signed packages with
repoclosure), you can view all the build attempts, and also the
packages that are actually built, but not pushed to mirror.c.o due to
lack of dependencies.
All packages built are available here : (raw format, unsigned) :
While all logs are available here : http://armv7.dev.centos.org/rpmbuild/

So if you can have a look at the packages you need, and verify if they
built or not (or if they have dependency on some other packages that
failed to build), feel free to report that here, and you can also ask
for access to test builds in your own env there (see

I've myself not attempted any gui install/setup on rpi2/cubietruck
