okay I have googled, but...I am unable to find anything on the net on how to install privoxy on my centos machine. I have tried yum install privoxy, I get: No package privoxy available.

I dont know if I am supposed to add any additional repo's or what.

Please help. Thanks, Louis

These commands are more easier and manageable

wget http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
yum install privoxy -y

In future if you want to update

yum update privoxy -y

Shouldn't he be using packages for centos-6 rather than 4? – Journeyman Geek Jul 23 '12 at 15:17
    
if you research centos6 you'd discover, a lot of redhat Ent 4 packages are fully qualified since they are based on the same base install. Also note before providing this answer I ran it in Virtualbox on fresh install of centos6 without issue. – tao Jul 24 '12 at 17:35
    
Hi @tao thanks so much for the answer. I installed it with the exact instructions as you put them above, except for the sudo, since I am logged in as root, and I get sudo: command not found. Trying to run the service, I get: unrecognized service. Could you possibly help me solve this please. thanks in advance. – louis_coetzee Jul 28 '12 at 21:43
