how to install rpm.

mandrake 10.0
i have iso files of all my cdroms.

they are cd1.iso &cd2.iso & cd3.iso &cd4.iso
i have mounted this in my /mnt.
now i can not install my tcpdump-3.8.1-1mdk.i586.rpm
because it has so many dependencies:

[root@localhost sound]# urpmi /mnt/2/Mandrake/RPMS2/tcpdump-3.8.1-1mdk.i586.rpm
To satisfy dependencies, the following packages are going to be installed (1 MB):

It could well be that urpmi is looking straight at the device /dev/hdc, rather than looking at /mnt/.... or wherever. If this is the case, then it's never going to work except by burning a CD and sticking it in /dev/hdc.

However, just check the output from mount that the 3 /mnt entries you mention are actually mounted, the permissions are right, and that you can browse them.

As a last resort, you could always locate libpcap and tcpdump yourself and install the 3 rpms by hand using rpm.

Have you setup those /mnt/1 etc. directories using the software sources manager in the Mandrake control centre? If so make sure you've disabled the CD sources - it may be giving preference to the CD sources for some reason.

Setup your URPMI sources:

could not be easier... Also you can use in root:

# rpmdrake

This will look for packages on the CD's
