I tried by following the instructions described here but they don't work. It looks like the repository mentioned in those instructions is actually not working:

http://fedora.vitu.ch/QGIS/7/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found

I was unable to find any other working method. This other repo I was able to find only goes up to CentOS 6: http://elgis.argeo.org/

  • The most recent centos installers are at: qgis.org/en/site/forusers/… Nov 7, 2014 at 12:15
  • @JohnBarça, that link leads to that "elgis.argeo.org" which I mentioned already and that is available up to CentOS 6 only so far. Thanks.

  • Sorry. Build from source then, it's not hard :D Nov 10, 2014 at 12:44
  • Unfortunately it is. I spent half a day building dependencies and all the like and I still can't make it. It is very frustrating to require to use a proprietary operating system to run an open source GIS because there aren't proper packages for it. :)

I used the following to successfully install QGIS with Python Plugin support on a CentOS 7 minimal install:

  1. Install CentOS 7 minimal
  2. Install a GUI Desktop

    yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop"

  3. Install QGIS+Python Support and supporting packages

    yum install qgis qgis-python python-devel PyQt4-webkit proj-devel geos-devel sqlite-devel gcc

  4. Python Requirement: Python 2.7 comes standard in CentOS 7

  5. Install pip

    wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py

    python get-pip.py

  6. Install pyspatialite (including /usr/include libraries)

    CFLAGS=-I/usr/include pip install pyspatialite


try to find qgis rpms in rpmfind.net and install them manually
