Install gnucash centos 5


I would like to use gnucash under centos 5.
Doing this with yum gives me the next messages:

# yum install gnucash
Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
Package gnucash-2.2.5-1.fc8.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

Then I launched gnucash as:
# gnucash
No thing is happening. Why?

Hi Mazouz,
1. Have you checked in /usr/bin to see if gnucash is there?
2. You installed gnucash as root with yum which makes sense but why are you trying to run it as root?

If /usr/bin/gnucash exists then try running it as a normal user.
Cheers,

Then I would guess it's not installed which is why you're having problems running it. :-) unless CentOS puts stuff in weird places. I don't know anything about yum but does it have a reinstall command? or else can yum remove it and then you can try installing it again?

The problem might be that you are trying to use a F8 rpm on Centos. You cannot always use rpms from other distros(to be avoided when possible). If you look in the Centos Epel repo gnucash is in there(2.2.7-1).

Hi lazlow,
I installed gnucash by using these next commands:

# rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...5-3.noarch.rpm

# yum install gnucash.x86_64

Thank you both for helping me !
