Don't take my word for this

but i don't see why you can't do ' rpm -Uhv *.rpm --nodeps --force '

this should work

well i used rpm -i kde.rpm but it gave me a lot of stuff which i have no idea what to do about. It gave me like 100 files that it said can't work together or something and then it said it needs library files and all that kind of stuff. When i tried to install kdelibs.rpm or something it gave me some other errors.
