Installing pidgin and wine on RHEL 6.3 Work Station


Hello,

I am trying to install pidgin and wine on RHEL6.3 WS and am having some issue.

[root@RFCHPCPRXY wtadmin]# yum install wine
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin, security,
: subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
Setting up Install Process
No package wine available.
Error: Nothing to do


[root@RFCHPCPRXY wtadmin]# yum install pidgin
Loaded plugins: product-id, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin, security,
: subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
Setting up Install Process
No package pidgin available.
Error: Nothing to do


I did try to add a centos repo as per some reading I did.


[root@RFCHPCPRXY wtadmin]# rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/x86_6....rf.x86_64.rpm
Retrieving http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/x86_6....rf.x86_64.rpm

not sure what that really did. Any direction would be helpful.

You can get pidgin from CentOS and Wine from EPEL.

This page will tel you about repositories
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRes...epositories%29

This covers the essential point about setting priorities
http://wiki.centos.org/PackageManagement/Yum/Priorities

These are good guides to finding software
