centos & madwifi rpm madness (weird dependency issue)


yup it's me again with another madwifi issue

Ok, I went to atrpms to get wireless support on my fress install of CentOS. To my horror, the attempted attempt of installing madwifi went sour.

First I did the obvious:
Code:
[root@localhost mw]# rpm -ivh madwifi-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i386.rpm
warning: madwifi-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
error: Failed dependencies:
        madwifi-kmdl-1:0.9.2-28.el4.at is needed by madwifi-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i386
Ok, simple dependency, I'll just install that:
Code:
[root@localhost mw]# rpm -ivh madwifi-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i686.rpm
warning: madwifi-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i686.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
error: Failed dependencies:
        madwifi-hal-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL = 1:0.9.2-28.el4.at is needed by madwifi-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i686
Uh, ok, need a dependency for a dependency so I'll just grab that one:
Code:
[root@localhost mw]# rpm -ivh madwifi-hal-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i686.rpm
warning: madwifi-hal-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i686.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 66534c2b
error: Failed dependencies:
        madwifi-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL = 1:0.9.2-28.el4.at is needed by madwifi-hal-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i686
Ok, here's where I get lost. How can I install kmdl AND hal-kmdl if they both depend on each other?

Put those files in a subdirectory of its own and run the command like this.
rpm -ivh *.rpm

If you have a previous version installed try it as this.
rpm -Uvh *.rpm

D'hoh, I found my stupid mistake. All I had to do was put the two rpm files on the same command. So here's my easy fix.

Code:
[root@localhost mw]# rpm -Uvh madwifi-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i686.rpm madwifi-hal-kmdl-2.6.9-42.0.2.EL-0.9.2-28.el4.at.i686.rpm
In simpler terms:
Code:
rpm -Uvh file1.rpm file2.rpm
What I didn't realize is that I could do it ot two files at the same time.

Just being a newb.
