Try:
Code:
Yum update
That should help.

If that doesn't help: see this thread that another member Solved with the similar situation as you.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...update-794627/

If that doesn't help than I will have to ask a Moderator to help because Yum should install anything unless you don't have those repo's that assist Yum to function.

Configure, make, and make install was the right thing to perform--

Besides that Red Hat 6.3 is the current stable version at this time.
But stay with your Red Hat 5 unless a Moderator advises you otherwise.

It looks like your repos are not setup correctly.
Can you show:
Code:
cat /etc/*release*
uname -a

cat /etc/yum.conf

ls /etc/yum.repos.d

# in the above dir, if there is a  '*Base*' or similar repo,
# please cat the content

# also
yum list repos

I don't know if i understand what you asked me , but this is the result of the commands:

Code:
# cat /etc/*release*
cat: /etc/lsb-release.d: Is a directory
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.6 (Tikanga)

# uname -a
Linux vm 2.6.18-238.el5 #1 SMP Sun Dec 19 14:22:44 EST 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

# ls /etc/yum.repos.d
mirrors-rpmforge          redhat.repo    rpmforge.repo.rpmnew
mirrors-rpmforge-extras   mirrors-rpmforge-testing  rpmforge.repo

# yum list repos
Loaded plugins: security
Error: No matching Packages to list

and this the content of redhat.repo if it can help :

[rhel-source]
name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - Source
baseurl=ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/linux/enterprise/$releasever/en/os/SRPMS/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-release


Thank you so much for your reply

on rhel5 you are missing the RHN.repo and it's uopdate repo

contact red hat tech support

and with rpmforge installed on RHEL5 there are very serious conflicts with the base red hat install ( mostly fixed with rhel6 )
the yum plugin " yum-priorities " or yum-protectbase are needed and need to be configured
also contact red hat tech support about this

and have a look through the red hat knowlage base
( you need to login the the redhat web site to use most of the search )

Contacting Red Hat is your best best.

I assure you that Chrism01 and John VV are right as they have always advised and taught me correctly as well.

yes

red hat is not a free operating system
you MUST 100% must buy the required license
-- no if's and's or but's ---

or

install one of the FREE rebuilds like
CentOS
( the older cent5 is CentOS 5.9 )
or the current CentOS 6.4

or
ScientificLinux 5.9 or 6.4

both CentOS and SL 5.9 are the very last minor upgrades
from now on it only receives bug and security fixes

with CentOS 6.4 and SL6.3 ( soon to be SL 6.4 )
as the current versions

they are both rebuilds of RHEL and are FREE
