Making an installation without YUM


I'm trying to make a huge installation of applications on linux, (Red Hat), but without internet, i mean, i will have to download rpm's one by one and install them, the problem is that i've tried and is terrible, it always shows conflicts within versions, dependencies of dependencies, etc etc...

Is there any kind of tip to get this working? any kind of command that shows me the real dependencies that should be installed (with the right versions, etc) without conflicts?

I've tried the following:

rpm -qR package
But not sure if this is going to help me.

Hope you can help. Regards!

Most distributions use a system, like anaconda. Download an iso of some distribution and close this thread. Doing it any other way with rpm is a nightmare.

do a mirror of a distrib to a disk, then make that a repository that you use to install the machines.
installing from dvd as suggested above is a good idea, but does not cover the case of update installs

Installing one application on Redhat EL 5 ( No Internet ) :

Download a version of the application from a recommended
and supported repository : Like from Redhat directly.

And use : # yum localinstall <application>
Which will reply with a dependency list for the exact package names.

If this is about many complicated package installs, you will of course
have to download the complete repositories, and set them up locally.

And why not ask Redhat ? That's your paid support.
