It would have been a VERY good idea to have informed us in the FIRST post
that yum was working UNTIL you installed rpmforge repo and installed Dante
rpmforge is KNOWN to be incompatible with some rhel/cent base system files
now rpmforge on centos 6 is A LOT better than on 5
But it will still REPLACE base SYSTEM FILES with DIFFERENT versions
it would have been nice to know that AND AND
that you are sshing into a remote server in the first post
now autotools ( including make) are NORMALLY NOT NOT INSTALLED
on a server
and are only installed for as long as needed to build software then UNINSTALLED
so HOW did you install rpmforge ?
like this ?
yum install rpmforge-release
some other way
DID you also install AND CONFIGURE
and configure it!!!
adding a line to the rpmforge repo file to make rpmforge a lower prioritie
and heed all the warnings
or better yet on a remote server it is better to use "ProtectBase"
and lock the system from changing some files
( on my Scientific linux 6.3 os rpmforge wants to replace 1300 -- yes 1,300 programs with different versions)
contact your hosting company and use the tech support that they have
you will be needing to change system files that you might need to have physical access to do
or as has been suggested taring up extracted rpms and manually coping them over to the remote machine
and manually copy/paste them in the correct places
