installing pptpd on centOs


Hi
I try to install pptpd on cent os :
Code:
[root@uk ~]# rpm -ivh pptpd-1.3.0-0.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        ppp >= 2.4.3 is needed by pptpd-1.3.0-0.i386
so I download the source of ppp package and try to install that :
Code:
[root@uk ppp-2.4.4]# ./configure

mkdir -p /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/share/man/man8
install -s -c chat /usr/local/sbin
install -c -m 644 chat.8 /usr/local/share/man/man8
But I can not install yet
Code:
[root@uk ~]# rpm -ivh pptpd-1.3.0-0.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        ppp >= 2.4.3 is needed by pptpd-1.3.0-0.i386

If you install by source, then that installed package will NOT show up in the RPM package database.
It you install an application by RPM, the rpm command will always check the RPM database package for dependencies.

To install 'ppp', run the following as root (when you are connected to the internet):
yum install ppp

Also, you can read this:
