This script will build python-2.7.x on a centos 6.x box. Tested on vagrant.
# This works on vagrant rather well particularly with the passwordless sudo
# Tested on a Centos 6.5 box file
# Thanks to for
# specfile and install logic
# Set this to the version of python you want to build.
# As of this writing 2.7.6 is the latest

This document contains some notes I have gathered while I was trying to setup a redis service using boot2docker running on OS X. This won't cover what Docker is, see Docker website for details.

Installing boot2docker

First, install Virtualbox and follow the steps at

Unit 1: God's Will and Your Life

"I am the vine; You are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." -John 15:5

Day 1: Jesus Is Your Way

  • As I follow Jesus one day at a time, He will keep me in the center of God's will.
  • Jesus is my Way. I don't need any other road map.

Day 2: Jesus is Your Model

  • The Bible is my guide for faith and practice
  • The right question is, What is God's will?
