problems with rpm install


i am a little confused by something. i am trying to install an rpm package but i need to resolve some dependencies first. this is where i run into problems:

when trying to install libfontconfig i get the error "fontconfig is required by libfontconfig"

so i try to install fontconfig but i get the error "libfontconfig is required by fontconfig"

i checked the dependincies and sure enough one is required by the other. how could this be possible? anyone know how to get around this circle jerk of dependencies?
cheers,
justin

just install them at the same time, in one command.

thanks for the help ak but since i didnt know the syntax of how to install 2 packages at once on the command line i found another way to get it to work. i installed one and had it ignore dependencies and then installed the other and it seemed to work fine. now i have another problem.

Anyone know where to get libkutils?
cheers,
justin

the syntax? you just type both file names one after another... not exactly cryptic.

check rpmfind.net for packages not on your distro cd's. failing that, google.

found it on google. it is part of the kdelibs package.

i figured that is how you did it but to tell the truth i figured out the no dep check solution before i read your post.
cheers,
justin
