how can I install libmcrypt libmcrypt-devel or php-mcrypt?

Post by Thilo » 2011/07/14 09:54:56

Hey,

when I try to install libmcrypt and libmcrypt-devel via yum install, yum complains that there are no packages libmcrypt and libmcrypt-devel are available.
The same is with the package php-mcrypt.

So is there any special repository which I need to add to yum so I can install the packages or how would I install them?

yum repolist:
[quote]
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: centos.bio.lmu.de
* extras: be.mirror.eurid.eu
* updates: centos.bio.lmu.de
repo id repo name status
base CentOS-6 - Base 4.558
extras CentOS-6 - Extras 0
updates CentOS-6 - Updates 783
repolist: 5.341
[/quote]

Ciao
Thilo

Looks like you'll need to install the [url=http://repoforge.org/use/]repoforge repository[/url]. I haven't done that myself yet, so maybe you want to look [url=http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/RPMForge#head-f0c3ecee3dbb407e4eed79a56ec0ae92d1398e01]here[/url] as well.

Don't forget to install and configure yum-priorities, or leave the new repository disabled by default.

Also available from EPEL if you prefer. Just beware of 3rd party repo mixing.
