Circular dependency for RPM installation
I have a PC that I've just installed Mandriva Linux 2010.2 KDE4 on. This PC has no internet connection, and I'm trying to install a few RPMs, so I'm downloading them separately from the /main/release and /main/updates/ online repositories.
However, I've realized that some RPMs have circular dependencies, in particular
pkgconfig(xproto) requires pkgconfig(xt) to be installed, which in turn requires devel(libX11) to be installed, which in turn requires pkgconfig(xproto) to be installed.
As you can see, there's no way I can install any of them since they depend on each other. How do I solve this?
Put all the rpms in one directory. Change to the directory and then do
rpm -Uvh *.rpm
You can give more than one package as arguments to rpm.You must always face the curtain with a bow.
