1. Download the dnssec-tools RPM binaries for RHEL
    • These are a little hard to find, here’s how :
    • Go to the download page : http://www.dnssec-tools.org/download/#gotoRed-Hat%20Enterprise%20Linux
    • In the upper right floating green box overlay, select “Linux” in the OS section. “Binaries” should already be selected. Selected ovals are purple, unselected ovals are white
  2. Confirm you have the epel yum repo configured as well as the rpmforge yum repo configured
    • Do this by installing both the “epel-release” rpm : http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/i386/repoview/epel-release.html
    • and the approriate “rpmforge-release” rpm for your architecture : http://repoforge.org/use/
  3. Use yum to install the dnssec-tools rpms you downloaded so that yum will resolve dependencies for you. Note, the “–nogpgcheck” option is because the dnssec-tools packages appear not to be signed
    yum --nogpgcheck localinstall dnssec-tools-*.rpm dnssec-tools-libs-*.rpm dnssec-tools-perlmods-*.rpm

On my particular system here’s what the yum dependency resolution looked like :
