Problems loading rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat


I am having problems loading this rpm:
"rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el4/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm"

The error message I receiving is: "curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404" then "error: skippiing rpm -Uhv http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el4/en/i386/rpmforge/RPMS/rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el4.rf.i386.rpm".

Can anyone please help?

1. 404 means not found; std http status code https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_HTTP_status_codes
2. do you really want RHEL4; that was discontinued from (regular) support in February

3.In any case, RH will NOT support non-RHN repos

Did you read the detail about 404??
In any case you can just google it or go to rpmforge's home site ....

Chris, I did try to get the rpmforge repo for CentOS 6.3 from several different sites and they all replied with '404 error' msg. It would work well with other packages. Please help.
