Unhappy automatically resolving rpm dependencies


hi everyone!

I installed fedora core 10 on my pc & now i have been trying to install samba. I dont have a network so i mount and use my dvd for installation. I lack exotic package management tools like apt or yum yet the system-config-packages tool does not make sense either. so am stuck with the rpm -ivh [package] command.

The issue however is that this command returns querries about missing
dependencies when I attempt to install. So is there a way (switch) i can add to tell the rpm command to automatically check and solve these dependecies using the Packages folder on my mounted dvd? - because i believe all these dependencies are on the dvd.

Thanks

Try this: http://www.city-fan.org/tips/YumRepoFromImages

There is also the --aid option for rpm itself, but that is really superseded and you can use yum just fine without the net.
