resolving dependencies

Using OpenSuse 10.2 and Gnome.
Resolving Dependencies is very, very, very slow. Once it took more than an hour before I got discouraged.
It finds one missing dependency then stops. I install the missing dependency then the process starts again (resolving) and takes a long, long time. It finds another missing dependency that gets installed and the resolving starts again.

Am I missing something?
Why does it not find all missing dependencies with one pass?
Can it not use the search engine to find the missing dependency and install it?

So much time!! Its very tempting to go back to Windows and I do not want to do that.
Any suggestion is welcome. BTW I was trying to install DVDRip

Always try the package manager first--on the major distros, MOST common SW will be available there (you might have to enable extra repositories).

On this system (PCLinuxOS 2007) dvdrip is available in the package manager.
