Hi C. L. Martinez,

About the CentOS5.x/RHEL5.x packages, Yes, there were a few hiccups (due 
to me packaging the wrong libpcap by mistake) but the packages are stable 
now and we'll most likely be using them at the place where I work.
You can get everything (binary packages + source packages) at:
As for RHEL6, if it's shipping with 1.0.0, then it might be easy to 
upgrade to 1.1.1 but it might have other side-effects.
