Seahorse is Gnome app, and the latest version requires gtk-2.16.x ...
CentOS-5.x contains gtk2-2.10.x so I would imagine the latest seahorse
will not work with CentOS.

Karanbir does have a version compiled (seahorse-1.0.1-9) for centos-5 here:


I am not sure if that is the latest version that will work with CentOS-5
or if there are any security issues with that version.

Here is where you can find all the seahorse sources, so you can find the
highest version that will compile on gtk-2.10.x and use Karanbir's SRPM
as a template if a newer version is available that will work.
