gdesklets repository


Hi,
I'm trying to install gdesklets, but wont show up on yum. Is there anything wrong with my repositories? Thanks!

Code:
[morton@mortonlx yum.repos.d]$ ls
atrpms.repo  CentOS-Base.repo  CentOS-Media.repo  mirrors-rpmforge  rpmforge.repo
[morton@mortonlx yum.repos.d]$ cat rpmforge.repo 
# Name: RPMforge RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise 5 - dag
# URL: http://rpmforge.net/
[rpmforge]
name = Red Hat Enterprise $releasever - RPMforge.net - dag
#baseurl = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/$basearch/dag
mirrorlist = http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/mirrors-rpmforge
#mirrorlist = file:///etc/yum.repos.d/mirrors-rpmforge
enabled = 1
protect = 0
gpgkey = file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-rpmforge-dag
gpgcheck = 1
priority=11
[morton@mortonlx yum.repos.d]$ cat atrpms.repo 
[atrpms]
name=EL $releasever - $basearch - ATrpms

If the package is not in the repositories, it could be that nobody packaged it for your distro. You can either compile from source or look for a Fedora Core 6 rpm.
