Failed Dependency: KDE 3.2.3 Upgrade


When I have attempted to upgrade from KDE 3.2.2 -> 3.2.3 I get the following error:

linux:/home/matthewasmith79/KDE_Recent # rpm -U --force *.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by kdeaddons3-kicker-3.2.3-3 is needed by kdenetwork3-InstantMessenger-3.2.3-3

Any suggestions on a resolution? This is the first major issue I have ever encountered when upgrading KDE when using the "rpm -U --force *.rpm" command.
