[CentOS] RasPi 3.x and RH-based Distro (Slightly OT)

I just today installed CentOS Userland on a Raspberry Pi 2B and have 
started using it as a firewall. It is fast and really works perfectly 
for this use case. I have an HDMI to VGA adapter and a PS/2 
mouse/keyboard to USB adapter to connect to my 16 port KVM switch. I use 
a Gb Ethernet dongle for the internal network and connect the on-board 
NIC to the external network.

I have a few more tools I want to install, because the CentOS ARM image 
is very minimal. And not everything I would like is available on the 
repo, but enough to make this very workable for me.


I hope this helps.
