cannot install bmon on centos?


I downloaded the rpm:
wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/bmon/bmon-...l5.rf.i386.rpm

However, when I issue the install command I just ge thelp files instead:
[root@jason ~]# rpm ivh bmon-2.1.0-5.el5.rf.i386.rpm
RPM version 4.8.0

What does 'rpm --test i ./bmon-2.1.0-5.el5.rf.i386.rpm' return? Shouldn't you use 'yum install bmon' instead? It has 1 dependency.

yum install bmon doesn't work on 6.2 - it cannot find the installtion form the repo.

.. ? Or : # yum localinstall --nogpgcheck bmon-2.1.0-5.el5.rf.i386.rpm

Then the dependency rrdtool is installed from CentOS-Base.repo.
( And dejavu-lgc-sans-mono-fonts as dependency for rrdtool.)

That works, thanks.
Doesn;t quite do what I thought it would though, I'm trying to test the bandwidth of my server, bmon only seems to show current usage of bandwidth not the maximum it could do.
