I am feeling stupid. I have been searching for 3 hours with no success. I installed Fedora 14 and tried to do yum install firestarter but the package was not found. I also tried from a GUI and found nothing. It is at fedoras repository? Maybe I should configure the repository, but all I found are dated. Any help? Thank you.

Firestarter hasn't been in the fedora repository since Fedora 11. It's listed as a deprecated package on their wiki. It's recommended that you use system-config-firewall instead.

Do you have a particular reason for wanting to use firestarter? If you really want to install it you can try grabbing the source from sourceforge.

What have you found to be missing from system-config-firewall (System -> Administration -> Firewall)? – user1295 Apr 29 '11 at 20:17
