I have tried it perfectly successfully using CentOS. This was CentOS 7 not 8 and an earlier version of MQ than V9.2.
The trick is to remove all traces of pacemaker and DRDB that you might have installed from elsewhere before you realised that you should not get them from elsewhere (I did the same thing the first time before I read the instructions too!) and then follow the instructions to install them from the MQ install media. It is very straightforward.
