rpm transaction lock problem


I'm trying to install xfce through RPMs. I don't want to compile it by source no matter what anyone says.

When I try the main binary it tells me that it needs more of them so I put more of them in.

rpm -ivh xfce, dep1, dep2

etc

It keeps asking me for more dependencies. When I finally add all of the dependencies to the list it says

"can't create transaction lock"

Is there a way around this?
