I'm new to openstack...just wondering if OpenStack Networking is supported on CentOS? If so, where can I find the installation guide for Quantum on CentOS?

RDO doesn't include Folsom packages because they were already available in EPEL.

In particular look at: (

Yes it is possible to run Quantum (Folsom) on CentOS. We are running it with openvswitch support. I've written down some tips here:

You can get the Folsom packages from the EPEL repository. Depending on the functionality you want from Quantum (e.g. GRE tunnels) you need to change to the upstream module instead of the openvswitch from Centos 6.4.
