Welcome to Linux way of things.

Most applications have a lot of dependencies, just download'em all and install.

Usually the package manager downloads all the necessary dependencies for you.
How did you try to install the software? If you use the Fedoras... yum I think it is, it should download all necessary packages.

Look at "man yum". The topic you are looking for is "yum localinstall"
