Hi, I am trying to install php-mcrypt and when I run
yum install php-mcrypt

Open in new window


I get the following error:

Does anyone have any ideas of getting the mcrypt working and/or working around this problem so that my client can run Magento?

The server is running CenotOS 5, with PHP 5.3.

Thanks
