[CentOS] Why libnetfilter_queue is missing from CentOS, but available in, Fedora?

Simply put, it's likely not in RHEL, either. CentOS is, essentially, a
clone of RHEL, so if it's not in RHEL, it's not in CentOS.

Keep in mind, as well, that the latest Fedora releases are as closely
related to the current RHEL/CentOS release as you and I. RHEL/CentOS6 is
closer to Fedora 12, as I recall...someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

cancer victims and their families/friends. If you'd care to donate, please


Thank you.
