Redhat9:rpm dependency,


I am having redhat linux 9.0 with inbuilt kernel 2.4.20.-8 and installed ALSA 1.0.5. When I am trying to install my own application rpm (which actually uses ALSA 1.0.5 APIs), I am getting the following dependency errors:
[root@aims-pc-100 i386]# rpm -ivh tone-2.Release8_0_1.0-69.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by tone-2.Release8_0_1.0-69 is needed by tone-2.Release8_0_1.0-69 is needed by tone-2.Release8_0_1.0-69

How do I get rid of these errors?
In spec file nothing of these dependencies defined.

Experts, please help me.

Post rpm dependency error

Dependency r failed definitely bcz required files r missing to install the above package. Try this link to download the misssing "lib*" files from here OR on
U have to install the ur previous packages force ably by adding "--nodeps" option like:

rpm -ivh tone-2.Release8_0_1.0-69.i386.rpm --nodeps --force

"--force" option will install it forcefully even though the package is already installed..
