My rpm needs to install first in a list of RPMS


I have a custom made rpm. I need to install my particular RPM in a list of rpms which are part of a program.
Say I have around 20 patch rpms which needs to be installed I need to install this through yum command. My particular RPM namely
Patch-list. needs to be installed as the first rpm in the total list of 21 rpms. I can modify my spec files and Makefiles as per my wish.
Can anybody suggest what needs to be changed so that my rpm Patch-list. will be installed first.

If I understand you right, you can use rpm --nodeps -i Patch-list.

The nodeps option will disable dependency checking (just for that package). Then when you've installed the known dependencies, try re-installing Patch-list. without the nodeps option. If all the deps are installed, you should get no warning messages.

Thanks Andy Alkaline for your reply. I will be using yum command as this should be installed form a repository. I will be using Patch-list. for backing up the configuration files before the installation of the other rpms. On issuing yum command My rpm Patch-list. needs to be automatically installed as the first rpm so that I can have the configuration backup
