Install qt-creator on Centos

Download qt-creator-4.1.0-4.el7.x86_64.rpm and run

sudo yum install ./qt-creator-4.1.0-4.el7.x86_64.rpm
Gets an error

Error: Package: qt-creator-4.1.0-4.el7.x86_64 (/qt-creator-4.1.0-4.el7.x86_64)
Requires: qt-creator-data = 4.1.0-4.el7
So I download qt-creator-data-4.1.0-4.el7.noarch.rpm and run

sudo yum install ./qt-creator-data-4.1.0-4.el7.noarch.rpm
Which returns this error.

Error: Package: qt-creator-data-4.1.0-4.el7.noarch (/qt-creator-data-4.1.0-4.el7.noarch)
Requires: qt-creator = 4.1.0-4.el7
It's a vicious loop.

As a work-around I try installing with rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest as recommended by yum. This runs with nothing returned to the terminal; no errors, warning, info, nothing. But after it runs there is no 'creator' or 'qt-creator' executable found and nothing new appears in the system menu.

How to install qt-creator on centos 7.6?

The trick is to provide both RPM files to yum at the same time. Try
yum localinstall qt-creator-4.1.0-4.el7.x86_64.rpm  qt-creator-data-4.1.0-4.el7.noarch.rpm
Perhaps it also works with install instead of localinstall.

EDIT: The yum man page says that install should be used instead of localinstall. One never stops learning.

It's in the epel repo, so you should be able to install it normally via yum if you have the epel repo enabled in yum's repolist.

You could also use the rpm command to force an installation if worst comes to worst.

Also, sudo is not used by default in CentOS.

Adding epel repo worked. qt-creator is running and also added to system menu.
