I'm still on their mailing list although I haven't tried the 
distribution for years now (have been using Ubuntu Studio for some time 
but keep on meaning to try some others as not 100% happy...) Anyway, to 
the point. I remembered there being a post about getting it to work with 
CentOS 7 as the last officially supported version was 5. This was the 
thread, so it might be worth picking it up again to ask how he went on 
after some more time with it...
