Package dependencies

Hey dudes, Is there an easy way to solve package dependencies?

Let's say i want to install xyz.rpm and it needs 4 rpms. Then the software should download them from some pub mirror.

Does that kind of apps exist?

man urpmi

Mandrake uses urpmi tools for its software installer, so you may be able to just use the urpmi addmedia command to your current urpmi setup. Im not sure about the .cz files though.. I guess it depends on the mirror.
