If you’re looking for a package on CentOS and can’t find in the main repos then there’s a good chance that you can find it, in the RPMforge repository.
RPMforge is a collaboration of packagers and is not part of Red Hat or CentOS but is designed to work with those distributions.
Download the rpmforge-release package:
- i686 http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.i686.rpm
- x86_64 http://packages.sw.be/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
I am using x86_64 server, so I will download the x86_64 package:
Install DAG’s GPG key:
sudo rpm --import http://apt.sw.be/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
Verify the package you have downloaded:
sudo rpm -K rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm
Install the package:
sudo rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el6.rf.*.rpm
Try to install some package, that failed before installing rpmforge repository:
Hope this will help you!
