How to install dnssec-tools on CentOS 5

  1. Download the dnssec-tools RPM binaries for RHEL
  2. Confirm you have the epel yum repo configured as well as the rpmforge yum repo configured
  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 :
