vte-0.11.10-1.i386.rpm conflicts its older version and gnome-terminal

Today I tried to install vte-0.11.10-1.i386.rpm and it gave me the following message:

[root@localhost rpm]# rpm -i vte-0.11.10-1.i386.rpm
file /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/ from install of vte-0.11.10-1 conflicts with file from package vte-0.8.19-1
file /usr/share/vte/termcap/xterm from install of vte-0.11.10-1 conflicts with file from package vte-0.8.19-1

So then I tried this instead

[root@localhost rpm]# rpm -F vte-0.11.10-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by (installed) gnome-terminal-2.0.1-5

When I searched for, it did exist. So I am guessing vte wanted to replace that file which is needed by gnome-terminal. Is my assumption correct? Is there anyway to get around this problem?
