RHEL 5: rpm --aid or rpmdb-redhat.rpm no longer supported


In rhel 4 if you do a rpm -ivh something.rpm and it has a dependency it kindly tells you what you are missing and which rpm you need to install. This was provided by the rpmdb-redhat. Rpmdb-redhat is no longer in rhel5 and there doesn't seem to be a replacement, am I missing something?

I know I can do a "yum" install, but if I don't have RHN configured or don't have net access I would like to fall back to something.

No, rpmdb-redhat is phased out, all moving to interactive depsolvers like Yum. At least that was posted on the RPM mailing list. If you have Yum but no 'net or RHN then maybe you could dump all installer CD packages in one dir, run 'createrepo' on it and use a custom --enablerepo config.
