yum is installed by default on all Centos5 versions. Do you have root privileges?

yum is obviously installed on your system. Ok, the address you are trying to reach looks good. Can your reach that address through your browser? I can. Are you running through a proxy?

configuration failure for wireshark?

hi, i downloaded wireshark-1.2.4.tar.bz2 and trying to install.
When i given ./configure am getting below error.

configure: error: Header file pcap.h not found; if you installed libpcap
from source, did you also do "make install-incl", and if you installed a
binary package of libpcap, is there also a developer's package of libpcap,and did you also install that package?

When you compile stuff on RH based systems you need the -devel of all the dependencies.

Still waiting for replies on #7.

If you insist on compiling yourself, save yourself a lot of headache and grab the source rpm. You can extract the spec file which will show you all the files you need to build it, including patches. It will also tell you any other tricks that are required to build it properly. This applies to compiling any package.
