Help installing Glib and Gtk RPM's

Hi, trying to install the floowing RPM's in Fedora Core 3:



here's the one from the GTK rpm:

[matty@localhost Desktop]$ rpm -Uhv gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386.rpm
warning: gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
XFree86-devel is needed by gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386
atk-devel >= 1.6.0-1 is needed by gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386
glib2-devel >= 2.4.0-1 is needed by gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386
gtk2 = 2.4.14 is needed by gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386
pango-devel >= 1.4.0-1 is needed by gtk2-devel-2.4.14-2.fc3.i386

The Glib one is a bit differemt, it pretty much just says: error: failed to create transaction lock

Any hlep I could get would be appreciated.

Hey, hows it going?

Not sure exactly whats going on with the glibc package error.

The other just appear to be missing dependancies; you'll have to install more stuff to get other stuff to work.

Try going through and type in the specific file it wants. Download, install.

You'll need dev files...which I'm not entirely sure what they are for, but thats the basics. You need to install more stuff.

GLB has lot of dependencies, so better to install the Pakage from the CD.
