installation of rpm packages

ok, i know for sure this is a stupid question but
i tried to install an rpm - package
an my linux says:

# rpm -i evolution-1.2.1-SuSE.jeo.3.i586.rpm
Fehler: fehlgeschlagene Paket-Abhängigkeiten: wird von evolution-1.2.1-SuSE.jeo.3 gebraucht wird von evolution-1.2.1-SuSE.jeo.3 gebraucht wird von evolution-1.2.1-SuSE.jeo.3 gebraucht

so i understand, that this is a problem of my installation.
Some so files are missing.
How can i get them installed ?

You have to get the three files as rpms and install them before. If you have SuSE DVD or CD, you may find it there, [search *libgal*, etc] else... just google around a bit.
If you KNOW that they are installed, (perhaps not through rpm) you may try the --nodeps argument to the rpm command, so it will not check for dependencies.

nothing from cd-rom.
I have downloaded the rpm`s from the internet.
I have searched the internet and my cd`s for the missing rpm`s but i just didn`t find them.
Any idea.
They must be in the internet but i am just to stupid to find them......

Try - you should be able to track down all the rpms you need.
