can't install iftop on Red Hat 5.5


Hello friends,

I can't execute iftop on Red Hat, take a look:

Quote:
root@OpenSIPS:/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386# rpm -ivh iftop-0.17-6.i386.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package iftop-0.17-6.i386 is already installed

root@OpenSIPS:/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386# yum list iftop
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
Installed Packages
iftop.i386 0.17-6 installed
Seems to be installed, but i can't execute it..../sbin/iftop doesn't exist, the executable doesn't exist...what should i check?

Thanks!

I've changed the PATH of my user in bash_profile to match the path of iftop, like this...but when i make sudo -s to change my user to become as super user (i have my user added into /etc/sudoers) and then i lost again the path...why is that?
