Supported releases

This branch supports:

Building the SIMP ISO

NOTE The following examples use CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1511.iso as an overlay source.


  • You must first:
    • Set up your build environment
    • Download an appropriate source ISO to overlay (in this example CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1511.iso)
    • If building the release tarballs from scratch:
      • ~70GB free in the mock root directory (generally this is /var/lib/mock)


The minimum necessary command to build SIMP from scratch is:

bundle exec rake build:auto[6.X,path/to/CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1511.iso]

If building from published release tarball:

bundle exec rake build:auto[6.X,path/to/CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1511.iso,path/to/SIMP-DVD-CentOS-6.0.0-0.tar.gz]

Full procedure

There is full procedure for compiling the SIMP tarball and ISO in the SIMP Development documentation.
