I think you should local yum repository setup in Linux... or can use
Code:
rpm -ivh <rpm-name> --aid / --force / --nodeps
For Local repo setup you can find number of docs in google.

Hi, unless you are installing your own software, you should use the repositories for the distro that you are using, for Ubuntu who is a derivative of debian, the application is apt-get and this installer took care of the dependencies.

I hope this comments will help you.

Regards,

That depends on the dependency, and the error. If you're installing from repos over the net, just typing in "apt-get <package-name>" should do it for you. Otherwise, download the missing file(s) based on the error, install them, and try again.

If your still having issues with it, please tell us what your trying to install, how your trying to install it. Also it wouldn't hurt to tell us what dependency its wanting.
