Adding RPMForge to CentOS

Base on the link, you will get enough information to add RPMForge to CentOS machine.

For me, I have some trouble on this as my Linux machine is text based only

1. My VM cannot use RPM to download the those listed RPM file directly.
2. RPM parse PM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt with error.
3. My Window machine cannot download those list RPM as well (I really have no idea why???)

If you encounter the above issue, this small tips may help. And, it is so naive....

Use wget!!

1. wget
2. rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt 
3. wget
4.  rpm -i rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el4.rf.i386.rpm or rpm -Uhv rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el4.rf.i386.rpm 

That all. You can test your yum by yum install vpnc
