Installing PowerDNS


Hi,

I am trying to follow a guide to install Power DNS. I have a Virtual Server running CentOS 6 and I have done "yum update".

When I try to do the following command it says no package available:
Code:
[root@30005921 yum.repos.d]# yum install pdns
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirror01.th.ifl.net
 * extras: mirror01.th.ifl.net
 * updates: mirror01.th.ifl.net
Setting up Install Process
No package pdns available.
Error: Nothing to do
[root@30005921 yum.repos.d]#
I tried to find any packages with "dns" in the name and got the following:
Code:
[root@30005921 yum.repos.d]# yum list | grep "dns"
avahi-compat-libdns_sd.i686             0.6.25-11.el6                   base
avahi-compat-libdns_sd-devel.i686       0.6.25-11.el6                   base
avahi-dnsconfd.i686                     0.6.25-11.el6                   base
dnsmasq.i686                            2.48-5.el6                      base
mod_dnssd.i686                          0.6-2.el6                       base
sblim-cmpi-dns.i686                     1.0-1.el6                       base
sblim-cmpi-dns-devel.i686               1.0-1.el6                       base
sblim-cmpi-dns-test.i686                1.0-1.el6                       base
[root@30005921 yum.repos.d]#
How do I find out which repositories to add to yum so I can install PowerDNS?

I googled around and could not find anything, and all guides for how to install Power DNS on CentOS say I have to do it through yum.

Thanks

- Mark

PowerDNS is in the EPEL repo https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
> > http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...6-5.noarch.rpm

# yum install pdns


Finding the package / the repo : It's the first hit by Goggling PowerDNS :
> rpm.pbone.net redhat_el_6 pdns-2.9.22-10.el6 rpm →
→ A copy link location on the packages will reveal
"fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/epel/6/"


( Repositories for CentOS http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories )

Hi Mark,

the best source for CentOS PowerDNS packages is http://www.monshouwer.eu/download/3th_party/. I believe you can just wget http://www.monshouwer.eu/download/3t...erver.el6.repo into yum.repos.d or the like, and start installing.

Thank's both for your responses. I added the EPEL repo and then installed it via yum
