Dependencies and YUM


I would like to install TinyERP on my CentOS5 server. It appears that it's not possible to install it directly with YUM and the dependencies are a nightmare. Is it possible to install it using an RPM and force CentOS to use YUM to find the dependencies?

I'm pretty sure you can run "yum install foo.rpm" in the same directory as the earlier-downloaded foo.rpm.

No. That's not how it works.

AFAIK: TinyERP is available in the FExtras repo.

Thanks Simon. It's included with Fedora 8. Do I just point YUM to a Fedora 8 repository?

Make sure the fedora extras repo is enabled. Then yum install as usual.
