failed dependencies whilst installing koffice


I'm trying to install Koffice 1.4 on SUSE 9.3 and I get the following dependencies failing...

rpm -Uvh koffice-1.4.0-3.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by koffice-1.4.0-3 is needed by koffice-1.4.0-3

I'm a newbie to linux and was kind of expecting YAST to let me know where these dependencies can be found and what I need to do to install them!

Can someone please advise me?

Hi absolute0,
try installing from source code instead using rpm packages. using source tar balls will resolve any dependencies automatically.

OK. Compiling from source isn't somthing I've attempted yet on linux and I'm concerned that this may cause me more frustration

I've had a look on RPMfind and have found an older version of koffice with the required dependencies. I will install this tonight to see if this resolves the problem.
