Adding RPMForge to CentOS

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

http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/RPMForge#head-c02c679d2b90b89efe3ac7f36f212c87bb1c17ab

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 http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
2. rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt 
3. wget http://pkgs.repoforge.org/rpmforge-release/rpmforge-release-0.5.2-2.el4.rf.i386.rpm
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
