It seems that your documentation is scattered and somewhat outdated. I was having quite the time trying to get everything to work under CentOS 7. If I compile a howto for that particular distribution and version, would it be beneficial to you?
I'm absolutely willing to assist (I'm sure I will eventually need to refer to it again).
Keep me posted.
