Installation of packages in RHEL-5.3 using X windows menu Add/Remove packages


How to add packages using X-Window's add/remove packages option in RHEL-5.3 as it shows only the currently installed package and and does not show any thing when we click the button "available packages" ? Kindly help.

Why don't you just use shell prompt using YUM instead of using GUI.
sample:
yum install <package name>
yum search <package name>
