Please provide more information. You don't say what version or distro of Linux you're running, so it's hard to tell you where to get it from.

A quick Google search says that this file is from the libmcrypt RPM. Either install it using the same command you gave above, or look on http://rpm.pbone.net, or get it from whatever distribution-repository your using.

Did you try the yum install libmcrypt, as suggested before?

Try to download that RPM file, and manually install it with "rpm -i <package name>" (as root). If you just can't get to the file, check the installation media you've got for RHEL, and it'll probably be on there, or you can contact RedHat support (since you've paid for it), and they can get you the file.

EDIT: I clicked the link you specified above, and I can save the RPM to my hard drive.
