two dependent rpms


I am trying to install a dvdauthoring software via rpm. When i run the rpm command it says that libfribidi.so.0 is required so i tried to install that via rpm and that required fribidi so i tried to install fribidi and it said that libfribidi.so.o is required. So my problem is that two rpms are dependent on each other and I cant install one without having the other already on my system. Does anyone know what I should do, possible install one by source?

Put them both in one folder. Open a console and type (after doing su) rpm -ivh *.rpm or rpm -ivh <the first package>.rpm <the second package>.rpm they will then install together.
