Yes, there is! You can borrow them for Redhat and just install the HIPL binaries.

If you want to build the HIPL binaries yourself, follow these instructions:

1. yum install libnetfilter_conntrack-devel libnfnetlink-devel libmnl libnl

2. Install the following RPM packages for Redhat:

Note: you need different packages for 64-bit machines!

3. Create a couple of links to avoid compilation errors:

ln -s /usr/include/linux/netfilter/nfnetlink.h /usr/include/libnfnetlink/linux_nfnetlink.h
ln -s /usr/include/libnetfilter_queue-1.0.2/libnetfilter_queue/ /usr/include/libnetfilter_queue

4. Follow the rest of the instructions in the INSTALL file for Fedora.
