Reciprocal RPM Dependencies

I'm sure this is a common problem, but I haven't been able to find any info about this issue. It's happened to me many times before and I've never figured it out. Now I'm trying to install libimlib2_1.0.6-2mdk.i586.rpm One thing it requires is libimlib2_1-devel-1.0.6-2mdk.i586.rpm. However, The second package requires the first package. They are both looking for versions 1.0.6 of each other. How do I fix this? If it matter, my installation method is double clicking the files on Konqueror.

install one with the force or no-deps argument. at the root prompt > rpm -ivh <filename>.mdk.i586.rpm --no-deps. then install the other one the normal way.

You can also do the following at the command prompt:

"rpm -Uvh libimlib2_1.0.6-2mdk.i586.rpm libimlib2_1-devel-1.0.6-2mdk.i586.rpm"
