Once upon a time, long back around 24 months back, there was an issue with wget and fantastico. The Issue was that fantastico will get installed. At least it will tell you that it fantastico installation has completed. But later on when you try to adjust the feature set, it will fool you saying it is not installed. We thought it got solved in 5.2. but it looks like re-appeared in RHEL/CentOS 5.3. The issue is with the buggy wget.
So the solution is to install it from source. Source is the best. RPMs and Debs took all the fun we had in slackware age of floppy based linux 🙂
yum remove wget
tar xfz wget-latest.tar.gz
rm -Rf wget-*
You will also want to put wget* on /etc/yum.conf exclude= line so the OS doesn’t automatically reinstall the buggy version.
