I am trying to install inotify-tools.x86_64 in a rocky8 linux machine. I am getting the following error. Any leads are much appreciated
~yum install inotify-tools.x86_64

No match for argument: inotify-tools.x86_64
Error: Unable to find a match: inotify-tools.x86_64
I tried to install it using dnf command but resulted in the same error.
I also tried to install it by cloning it from git but the autogen and configure shell script is not running in rocky8.
As far as I can see,
inotify-tools is offered by
epel-el-8 packages. If you have it enabled in
/etc/yum.repos.d directory, you should be able to install by
yum package manager.
Output from my machine..
