Unhappy gCompris RPM depencies problem...

if I type:
rpm -i gcompris-sounds-fr-6.1-2mdk.i586.rpm
I get:
gcompris = 6.1 is needed for gcompris-sounds-fr-6.1-2mdk

and if I type:
rpm -i gcompris-6.1-2mdk.i586.rpm
I get:
gcompris-sound = 6.1 is needed for gcompris-6.1-2mdk

It's a loop!!!!!!!!! How can I install gcompris RPM ?!?!?

Thanks for any help!

Check the man pages for rpm. In the section on installing, there's a -nodeps option which tells rpm not to check for dependencies.

You could also try using urpmi which handles dependancies quite well I guess.
urpmi gcompris
