Same here for v2.7.11 on SLES 11. If you want to integrate as many modules
as possible at compilation time (we had to skip four unimportant ones in
the end) it may be painful with an older OS, but I assume CentOS is a bit
less recalcitrant than SLES.
We installed everything in home scheme, which requires proper setup of
environment variables like $PATH, $LD_LIBRARY_PATH, $PYTHONPATH, etc...
For us the trigger for switching the Python version was an issue with an
outdated OpenSSL (just days before the Galaxy announcement regarding the
coming deprecation of 2.6), so we included the reworked/conmpiled OpenSSL
libraries first. I would recommend the same for you, if your OpenSSL
package is <v1.0.2. Currently we are still testing, so we did not reply
yet to our own dev list toppic. Be prepared for recursive dependency
issues, if your repository software packages are old.
