Upgrading RPM package

I'd like to upgrade a package (called ORBit); although it says that there are dependencies that use this package and therefor I CAN'T UPGRADE!

Now, is there anyone who might tell me if I should dare to FORCE the upgrade?
(the thing is that there are A LOT of dependencies which have to work...)

no, update the dependencies as well. they are dependent for a reason. use rpmfind to get which packages you need

Hehe, I tried without and even GNOME refused to start up. But now everythings works again (and I've learned a lesson).
