Help installing Vlc and other software


I guess you see a lot of these around here.I am a fairly new Linux user running Fedora core 5 with the kde desktop. When installing RPM's i encounter a lot of

dependency problems. Now I know for some this issue is solved by yum or the add/remove program packaged with fedora. However

I stay in South Africa and my Internet usage is limited so using yum is a bit of a problem.
When running a --test install of vlc (downloaded from their site with all dependencies allready included in the 80 odd meg

tar.gz file) i get these errors:

error: Failed dependencies:
libSDL_image-1.2.so.0 is needed by vlc-0.8.5-1.i386
libdbus-1.so.1 is needed by vlc-0.8.5-1.i386
libgnutls.so.11 is needed by vlc-0.8.5-1.i386
libgnutls.so.11(GNUTLS_REL_1_0_9) is needed by vlc-0.8.5-1.i386
libslang-utf8.so.1 is needed by vlc-0.8.5-1.i386
libImlib2.so.1 is needed by caca-utils-0.9-1.i386
libslang-utf8.so.1 is needed by caca-utils-0.9-1.i386

But when downloading the rpm's of these files and trying to install them i get an error telling me newer versions of the

software is all ready installed. So the dependencies are there my fedora just doesn't see them.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Did some more tinkering, mabe it helps to make the problem easyer to identify.

The error message i get whe trying to install the dependant pacages is something like this

Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
package libstdc++-4.1.0-3 (which is newer than libstdc++-4.0.0-8) is already installed
package libstdc++-4.0.0-8 is already installed
file /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 from install of libstdc++-4.0.0-8 conflicts with file from package libstdc++-4.1.0-3

In a other post someone sugested that one uses "rpm --ivh --force --nodeps <file-name>"
But executing that command i get this...

[root@localhost vlc-fc4]# rpm -ivh --force --nodeps fedora/4/i386/vlc/0.8.5/base /*.rpm fedora/4/i386/vlc/0.8.5/contrib/*.rpm

Now i get the Vlc shortcut under multimedia, but it just loads a while and then dissapears. This is properbly because most of the persentages above are below 90%.

Again any help would be aprichiated
