Trouble with RPMs


I have some trouble with installing an RMP at home (k3b). I don't have Internet, so it's not simple. Anyway, I am trying to do a local install from a folder, and I'm saying yum localinstall /foo/foo.../foo.rpm. Also, I disabled all repos, but it's still looking for links to dependencies. Is there a way to disable dependencies? Without Internet, Linux is hard to work with (Maybe I should reinstall Windows ).

you MUST satisfy dependencies, if you didn't need to it wouldn't ask for them. in actual fact that's not *always* correct and you can manually force an installation with "rpm -Uvh --nodeps whatever.rpm" but there is no guarntee it will work at all. occasionally dependencies only provde some graphics, or a library that is not used the way you wish to use the app in question etc... but as a rule of thumb you must satisfy them.

How can I satisfy them? Are you saying without Internet I'm screwed?

you don't necessarily need direct internet access, but you need those rpm's from somewhere, either your distro cd's if they are on there, or the internet via a usb memory stick etc...
