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.

  • Thank you for the response:) I was looking for a good grafical gui for firewall to use at a demostration. So there arent any good-equilivement GUI for ipatables? – GorillaApe Apr 29 '11 at 20:11
  • What have you found to be missing from system-config-firewall (System -> Administration -> Firewall)? – user1295 Apr 29 '11 at 20:17
