Can't automate the Cortex agent for Linux install due to the RPM issues

We are having issues with rolling out Cortex using automation tools. Since the RPM doesn't take care of figuring out dependencies by itself, you need to manually go install those dependencies and then install the RPM. This makes installs messy and, since there are different distros and versions of Linux in the environment, this breaks the ability for us to automate this without creating our own installation scripts (for each distro and version) and maintaining them ourselves. 

Does anyone have any suggestions? We use salt.
