How do I install the nagios NRPE plugin on CentOS 5 using yum?

I've tried yum install nagios-plugins but it's only downloading a fraction of a megabyte. Then if I do a search for one of the commands that was supposed to be installed, like check_users nothing comes up. When I look in /etc/yum.repos.d/ I'm only seeing three files


Do i need to add a source? If so, which one?


I actually fixed this by installing RPMforge, which just so happens to aim at DAG repository, and then all yum commands to install nagios worked great.

Try yum remove nagios-nrpe (etc), then see this page, install the update, then try the command yum install nagios-nrpe again and see if that works.
