Installing Multiple RPM's at a time?


I just downloaded everything I need to get MPlayer to work. Now, I need to know how to install more than 1 RPM at the same time, because of the circular dependencies.


Thanks,
Matt

As the package manager also installs one item at a time even if there are dependencies you don't have to install them at the same time I think. You just have to have them all installed when you first run the program.

If there are circular dependencies, you should probably use
rpm -ivh *.rpm --force --nodep (see also man rpm)
to overcome the initial reluctance of rpm .
