      Well, it's like with many software things, only the current is really
      supported, and older versions are left behind.

      >How come openssh was not made into an RPM for Redhat 6.x or lower?

      See above.

      What you can do is grab the source RPM (openssh-x.x-x.src.rpm), and as
      root, run the command "rpm --rebuild filename.src.rpm". This will build
      an RPM right on your system with your libs. I don't know if it'll
      install it as well, but if not, you can install the resulting binary RPM
      which will be in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/ after the rebuild.

      Hi again,
       
      I downloaded the source RPM for openssh-2.5.2p2-5.src.rpm
       
      But guess what...... I have version 4.0.2 of RPM installed on my Redhat 6.2.
       
      I guess I upgraded it at some point of time. There does not seem to be a --rebuild option. However there is an option called --rebuilddb, but I guess that is not what we're looking for right?
       
      Here is the output of rpm . Can you point me in the direction getting the source built via RPM?
       
      I also checked the /usr/src folder and there does not seem to be a redhat folder there.
