error: failed dependencies

Hi there,

I am trying to install an app using rpm on a Redhat-7.2, and I am getting the following errors:

rpm -i kannel-mysql-1.3.1-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies: is needed by kannel-mysql-1.3.1-1 is needed by kannel-mysql-1.3.1-1

I google for and download openssl-0.9.6b-32.7.i386.rpm that includes both,

I execute rpm -q openssl

So since a previous version of openssl is already there I am about to update it running

rpm -Uvh openssl-0.9.6b-32.7.i386.rpm
and getting back

error: failed dependencies: is needed by cyrus-sasl-1.5.24-C5 is needed by ucd-snmp-4.2.3-2C1 is needed by ucd-snmp-utils-4.2.3-2C1 is needed by lftp-2.3.9-1 is needed by bind-utils-9.2.1-0.7xstackguardC1

is there any alternative for upgrading those libraries?

Thank's in advance
