    After rebuilding rpm database on my Centos 5.7 x86_64 server; I installed all 'tetex' packages listed under:
    WHM > Software > Install a RPM

    But I realy need a Tex package called: Circuitikz

    Please help me add that to my server as some of my clients are requesting it.

    Hello abdoh,

    The circuitikz package is part of texlive rather than tetex one. Here's a discussion on that:

    linux - Installing TexLive on CentOS5 via SSH - Stack Overflow

    Since the CentOS rpms don't exist that I could find (only the Fedora Core ones), you can install via source:

    Code:
    cd /root
    wget http://mirror.ctan.org/systems/texlive/tlnet/install-tl-unx.tar.gz
    tar xzf install-tl*
    cd install-tl-20120403
    ./install-tl
    i
    A huge number of packages will be installed, including circuitikz one:

    Code:
    Installing [0330/2435, time/total: 04:21/23:37]: circuitikz [306k]
    Thanks!
