Welcome to LQ.

Make sure, the rpmforge.repo, dries.repo etc. are not used.
( rpmfusion* seems to do no harm.)
And take care that the 'epel.repo' is enabled.

# rpm -e cacti
# yum install cacti --disablerepo=<unwanted-repo-1> \
--disablerepo=<unwanted-repo-2>

The package with /etc/cacti/db.php
will now be installed.

Great this worked like a gem!

Can you elaborate on why we should not be using rpmforge.repo, dries.repo etc?

I am a newbie in linux!

When having the rpmforge / dries repo enabled,
a 'cacti' without /etc/cacti/db.php will be
installed, probably because the "release"
version number is higher. ( Or the "major" ).

'cacti-0.8.7d-1.el5' : '1' is the "release" version,
'0.8.7d' is the "major" version number.

Example rpmforge : cacti-0.8.7b-2.el5.rf.noarch.rpm
... and no /etc/cacti/db.php !
