In my script, before attempting to install rbldnsd, I FIRST run:
yum -y install epel-release
...I had forgotten why, but what you said makes sense - that explains
why I was running that command - and that mirrors the instructions found
where it says:
*NOTE for CentOS users*
You can install EPEL by running*yum install epel-release*. The package
is included in the CentOS Extras repository, enabled by default.
HOWEVER - after doing that - when I run "yum list", I see MANY packages
that are labeled as a part of "epel" - but "rbldnsd" is missing. I think
for whatever reason, rbldnsd is suddenly missing from the EPEL release?
(whereas it was previously there?)
Thanks for looking into this! Any suggestions?
