Therefore all scripts need to be updated to reflect the corresponding centOS commands in the script. So is there any scripts available for CentOS development environment as well so we can refer and run it.

We (Brian and I at Intel) initially developed the CentOS container
approach to building StarlingX because what we had available to do
builds were Ubuntu 16.04 systems.  You could conceivably just run the
build directly on CentOS systems without the container.  This in fact
is how many of the developers at Wind River work.

I can see where using the container build process may be desirable
even on a CentOS host, keeping things neat and clean, or if the
version requirements do not exactly match.  Generalizing the Ubuntu
scripts to work on other distros is desirable but just not something
that anyone else done before now.

We would welcome contributions that broaden the availability of StarlingX.
