Paradox while installing Qt4 packages


Hi!
Can anyone explain why it happens as follows?

Quote:
[root@localhost qt4]# rpm -ivh qt4-common-4.3.2-1pclos2007.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libQt3Support.so.4 is needed by qt4-common-4.3.2-1pclos2007.i586
libQtCore.so.4 is needed by qt4-common-4.3.2-1pclos2007.i586

libQtNetwork.so.4 is needed by qt4-common-4.3.2-1pclos2007.i586
libQtSql.so.4 is needed by qt4-common-4.3.2-1pclos2007.i586
libQtXml.so.4 is needed by qt4-common-4.3.2-1pclos2007.i586
[root@localhost qt4]# rpm -ivh libqtcore4-4.3.2-1pclos2007.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:

Where is the trick?!? And above all, how can I overcome this enpasse?

You should be able to install qt4-common with synaptic package manager or apt-get. That should satisfy the dependencies automatically.

Yes, I agree with you. Unfortunately, I do not use Synaptic since I have no DSL connection available in my area... so, live updating are fairly impossible with 56K connection.
I download .rpm packages from my office and then "statically" install them into my computer at home.

Anyway, beyond my peculiar needs, I assume rpm command should have a certain system consistancy so as not to feature suche deadlocks...

You might want to consider this:

Its a bit expensive, but worth it.

And to fix your problem, you need to install both RPMs at once, like this:
Code:
rpm -ivh package1 package2 package 3

...Thank you! Indeed, I am quite ashamed, but this time solution was really a typical "Columbus' Egg": being Synaptic a GUI front-end, it was supposed to have a correspondent, working command-line.
