If you absolutely have to install an older package, rpm has an option that lets you do this. I think you can just use "rpm -uvh --oldpackage name_of_file.rpm". But before you try that, you might want to try just creating a symlink to the newer library, that has the name of the older library. e.g., if you had opengl_library.so.2 you could type "ln -s opengl_library.so.2 opengl_library.so.3". I think sometimes new libraries totally support the older ones, they just have to be the same name. This has worked for me a couple of times, hope it helps you out.
