    proftpd does not seem to want to install for me using yum (or apt-get for that matter).

    Doing a : yum search proftp

    Yields nothing. HelP?

    Which distribution do you use? What's the exact yum output?

    Sorry, I'm using FC4.

    [root@match ~]# yum install proftpd

    what is the output of

    yum list installed | grep proftp
    rpm -qa | grep proftp
    did you add any other repositories? (dag or dries) ... they will provide you with a right version for FC4

    Neither of those give me any output worth posting (ie. nothing).

    It's defintetly not installed.

    How would I go about adding those other repositories? I know I added 3 for apt-get from the HOW-TO, but I don't know what the path might be for the others?

    What's in /etc/yum.conf?

    [root@match /]# cat /etc/yum.conf
    # Note: This file is no longer the entire yum configuration
    # for See
    # for details on how to set up your system with the new
    # yum configuration.
    # We don't want to gpg-check local, unsigned packages
    # Changed this because some mirrors go down and then
    # re-trying takes forever.
    # PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
    # in /etc/yum.repos.d

    Appears to work now that I've addedt he dries respository, but I didn't see anything about adding aditional respositories in the HOWTO.
