Fix package versions in the CI Dockerfile

Laurent Petre requested to merge bugfix/ci-dockerfile into main


This MR fixes a long-standing issue where the package version constraints were not taken into account by yum. Since the versions are checked by the build system, we just let yum install the most recent version.

Additionally, implement an host independent xDAQ configuration for simple tests on machines other than gem904daq04 (currently powered off).
