Post rpm without dependencies


I m trying to install httpd package on RHEL 5
its showing me ...
rpm -ivh httpd-2.2.3-6.el5.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by httpd-2.2.3-6.el5.i386 is needed by httpd-2.2.3-6.el5.i386
hence i m not able to install , even i m not able to get
above packages (i.e libapr, libaprutil ).

can anybody tell what is the solution for this ?.
can i install httpd package without dpendencies.

Thx & regards

rpm --nodeps -ivh httpd-2.2.3-6.el5.i386.rpm

run rpm --help and you will get more info

if httpd needs those packages you might find httpd broken until those packages are installed, build them from source maybe?

try to find "Apache Portable Runtime library",

Go to and search for the missing files. You should be able to find the missing dependencies there using the 'Package contains file' search.

Or just install them from the Red hat discs since they are included on the installation media. Another alternative would be to download the rpms from wherever he got the httpd rpm.
