By the way, CentOS is the same thing as RedHat-anybody have it on RedHat?

Maybe you don't have the repo which provides Fluxbox. I got Core, Updates, Extras, Livna and Freshrpms as my repos. It was in Extras.

Also try out the home page
http://fluxbox.org/
http://fluxbox.sourceforge.net

Then try yum on those two, #yum install liblmlib2.so.1 pyxdg

If they don't show up, try #yum search liblmlib2.so.1 pyxdg

How have you set up and configured Yum on your system? If you go to the RH website and search for Yum it should have instructions for doing the basics. Or the CentOS website should.

Xavier, I did not do anything with yum, I simply installed CentOS, I did not configure anything.

I googled Fluxbox install, and found this:

http://www.linux-noob.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=13

Problem is, where it says make, what do I put after make? It says that I have not specified a file.
