Install iftop on the Endian Firewall

I love iftop, it is the answer, the inmediate answer, to the most asked question "who the fuck is turning the network to molases".
So after reading this Install VMWareTools On Endian Firewall Community 2.2 RC3, I decided to try and install some RPM extras on the firewall.

So, I got the iftop RPM package from DAG, this one:

http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/iftop/iftop-0.16-0.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm


Setup things a bit tidy on the Endian:

~ # mkdir local.rpms
~ # cd local.rpms/


And then used wget, that I already installed using the instructions from the first link, downloaded the RPM, and tested if I could install it or if there was a dependency:

~ # rpm --test -ivh iftop-0.16-0.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm
warning: iftop-0.16-0.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]


No dependencies, everything went A Ok, so simply install and enjoy:

~ # rpm -ivh iftop-0.16-0.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm
warning: iftop-0.16-0.1.fc3.rf.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 6b8d79e6
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]

Thanks for your posting, but when i tried to install the iftop, it saying can't create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES

Do you why?

Hey, Anonymous, that's a five year old post.
On what version of Endian are you trying to install?
And, are you doing that from a SRC package? I've done my install from a plain vanilla RPM, not a SRC one.
Hope this helps.
