Question OpenVPN - Dependencies Issues


Good evening all, my knowledge of Linux is "average" so you may have to bare wth me on some of the more advanced parts.

I have found myself in need of a private VPN, without ties to another company. Naturally, openvpn came to mind. I'm currently running CentOS6.5 x64. This is a new installation, after securing the server and locking it down, I am finding it dificult to continue with the OpenVPN installation.

To begin with:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/dag/redhat/el6/en/x86_64/dag/RPMS/openvpn-2.2.2-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
Retrieving ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/dag/redhat/el6/en/x86_64/dag/RPMS/openvpn-2.2.2-1.el6.rf.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        liblzo2.so.2()(64bit) is needed by openvpn-2.2.2-1.el6.rf.x86_64
        libpkcs11-helper.so.1()(64bit) is needed by openvpn-2.2.2-1.el6.rf.x86_64
Ok, fairly sure those would have been installed, however:
Code:
[root@localhost ~]# find / -name liblzo*
/usr/lib/liblzo2.so.2.0.0
/usr/lib/liblzo2.so.2
Not present in lib64... And nothing found at all for the libpkcs11-helper.so.1 library.

So install them right?
Code:
[root@localhost lib64]# rpm -ivh ftp://195.220.108.108/linux/fedora/linux/releases/21/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/p/pkcs11-helper-1.11-3.fc21.x86_64.rpm
Retrieving ftp://195.220.108.108/linux/fedora/linux/releases/21/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/p/pkcs11-helper-1.11-3.fc21.x86_64.rpm

Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]
   1:pkcs11-helper          ########################################### [100%]
Good.

Code:
[root@localhost lib64]# rpm -ivh ftp://195.220.108.108/linux/fedora/linux/releases/21/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/l/lzo-2.08-3.fc21.x86_64.rpm
Retrieving ftp://195.220.108.108/linux/fedora/linux/releases/21/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/l/lzo-2.08-3.fc21.x86_64.rpm

error: Failed dependencies:
        libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.14)(64bit) is needed by lzo-2.08-3.fc21.x86_64
Not Good. Chasing dependencies time..

Code:
[root@localhost lib64]# rpm -ivh ftp://195.220.108.108/linux/fedora/linux/releases/21/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/g/glibc-2.20-5.fc21.x86_64.rpm

warning: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.Yysequ: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 95a43f54: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
        glibc-common = 2.20-5.fc21 is needed by glibc-2.20-5.fc21.x86_64
And again

Code:
[root@localhost lib64]# rpm -ivh ftp://195.220.108.108/linux/fedora/linux/releases/21/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/g/glibc-common-2.20-5.fc21.x86_64.rpm
Retrieving ftp://195.220.108.108/linux/fedora/linux/releases/21/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/g/glibc-common-2.20-5.fc21.x86_64.rpm
warning: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.hMFof3: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 95a43f54: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
        /usr/bin/bash is needed by glibc-common-2.20-5.fc21.x86_64
        glibc = 2.20-5.fc21 is needed by glibc-common-2.20-5.fc21.x86_64
        libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.14)(64bit) is needed by glibc-common-2.20-5.fc21.x86_64
        libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.15)(64bit) is needed by glibc-common-2.20-5.fc21.x86_64
Okay, this isnt normal. "/usr/bin/bash is needed by glibc-common" what? And its dependency is glibc, the thing that was attempted installation before this but said that glibc-common was a dependency of that.

I must be missing something obvious, but my tired eyes cant see it and it's doing my head in. This shouldnt even be a problem, it should just install lol.

Running kernel version - 2.6.32-504.3.3.el6.x86_64
Although its just occured to me I ran a yum update not long ago:
Code:
[root@localhost lib64]# cat /etc/*-release
CentOS release 6.6 (Final)
CentOS release 6.6 (Final)
CentOS release 6.6 (Final)
So I'm now running 6.6 Final... I didnt realise it had updated to 6.6. However that shouldnt change this installation procedure. Little help guys?

Thanks, Dave.

Ugh, ignore me..

EPEL added and enabled and yum can now find the x86_64 openvpn.

Problem solved.
