Question Software Installation Problem (Fedora 8)

I just installed Fedora 8 on my computer. Now the problem is that i can't install any software at all. Every thing that i try to install is giving some error:

warning: libstdc++-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY,
key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/__db.000

warning: xine-lib- Header V3 DSA signature:
NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by xine-lib- is needed by xine-lib-

And one software that i could install is not starting now:

/usr/local/RealPlayer/realplay.bin: error while loading shared
libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory

For this real player error, i tried installing libstdc++-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm but it says that it is already installed!

I have not yet configured my router in Fedora so i dont have net access on it.

Kindly Help...

Before you use a rpm from a particular repo you have to import their key. This will be much easier to do after you have the router up.

Have a look at "man yum". What you are looking for is "yum localinstall". But what you have to realize is that a lot of rpms will have 10+ dependencies that is the nice thing about yum (once you have the internet up), it will automatically grab those dependencies for you.
