Friends,

I need to install libdbi1 libdbi-dev libdbd-mysql using yum as a part of icinga installation on my CentOS container. Anyone know the repositories for these packages? It's not there by default. I have tried with epel, remi etc, but it was unsuccessful. Please help.

Have you tried "yum search libdbi"?

I get a lot of matches on my Cent 6.3 machine. It looks like you may be using the wrong package names for CentOS...for example "libdbi-dev" is a Debian-style package name, CentOS uses the full "-devel" suffix for dev packages. This may be why you're having difficulties finding matches.

Indeed the Icinga documentation suggests the installation of libdbi1, libdbi-dev and libdbd-mysql, but these package names are wrong. Specifically development packages on Red Hat/CentOS are named -devel and not -dev. Therefore, I guess there is an error in the Icinga installation guide (you might report it to the developer).

By the way - following the suggestion by suicidaleggroll above - if I try to install Icinga with IDOUtils using yum on CentOS 6.3, I get the correct list of dependencies and the repositories that provide the packages.
Code:
# yum install icinga-idoutils-libdbi-mysql

As you can see all the dependencies are provided by the base/updates repositories, except for icinga itself provided by rpmforge. Hope this helps.

Thank you very much friends. Some of the package names were wrong in Icinga documentation. Now I successfully installed all necessary packages.

Regards,
