Istalling rpm INCLUDING dependencies via command line?


I wonder if there is a way to install a rpm INCLUDING all its dependencies (as well as there dependencies, the whole tree...).

I know that the graphical tools can do this, but I would like to be able to do it from the command line. I can make sure I have the full sets of RPMs available and accessible.

Also, I know this can be done by a number of "add-ons", but I wonder if there is a solution that can be done with the tools coming with a minimal install (e.g. Red Hat 9 Server option).

I would like to know this because I am thinking on automating things as well as using remote rented servers which may have only this setup and I am only able to configure via ssh.

Any comments are deeply appreciated,

I think you would need to:

put all the rpms into one folder
cd into the folder
type "rpm -ivh *.rpm" w/o the quotes and they would all install together.
