wireshark rpm installation thru yum on RHEL5


Hi,

I am using RHEL5 OS on Intel Core 2 Duo processor (64 bit processor).
I have a query regarding installation of wireshark on RHEL5.



Installed the repository release package from rpm
i updated the release package rpmforge-release-0.3.6-1.el5.rf.x86_64.rpm from " http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/rpmforge-release/ "


After setting the proxy information, i was able to install vlc package thru yum confirming my yum configurations are ok. But when i do
$sudo yum install wireshark the below error occurs:

Loaded plugins: aliases, changelog, downloadonly, fastestmirror, filter-data, : keys, kmod, list-data, protect-packages, protectbase, rhnplugin,: security, tmprepo, verify, versionlock
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.

* rpmforge: apt.sw.be

Reading version lock configuration
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Skipping filters plugin, no data
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package wireshark available.
Nothing to do

Upon going to rpmforge package directories found there is no wireshark package available. could that be the reason for the above message..


used the rpm wireshark-gnome-1.0.8-1.el5_3.1.i386.rpm from
for CentOS 5.3 from the link
"http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/3/srodzaj/1/search/wireshark".

Upon doing yum install gnome-1.0.8-1.el5_3.1.i386.rpm as root, got error messages of dependency :

Wireshark is already included in RHEL 5, why are you downloading from 3rd party sites ?

Redhat EL5 is unusable without the paid subscription.
The third party repo's like rpmforge will work only
when the basic repo is present and working.

Suggest : Install the free copy of EL5 : CentOS 5.4
