Hello,

You could enable the EPEL YUM repo file as mentioned in the previous post, however keep in mind it's not an officially supported repository. Thus, you may want to manually compile that software using the instructions under "Everyone Else" at the following page:

Home · rvoicilas/inotify-tools Wiki · GitHub

Thank you.
