Hi KB,

I installed it successfully on a Centos+EPEL server; everything seems 
fine with the exception of VNC applet which for some reason I had 
problems accessing so I switched to the noVNC version.
Now everything is fine.

I created a Centos6 image that one can add to openstack:
glance -v add name=centos6_64bit is_public=true disk_format=qcow2 
root passwd is "password"
selinux on
iptables off
ntp on
swap is on, but minuscule as to avoid much I/O (64M, can be increased 
with e.g.: swapoff -a; fallocate -l512M /swap.IMG; mkswap /swap.IMG; 
swapon -a)
epel-release installed and active
cloud-init installed and active
size ~800 MB

I'm going to try a more distributed setup next week and report back.

Looking forward to Folsom tbh. :-)
