At first do rpm -Uvh --test *.rpm in the directory with rpms. You'll see
broken dependencies etc... after it won't complain any more, run rpm
-Uvh *.rpm as root in the directory.

BTW you don't have to worry. RPM itself reorders files to be in correct

You should think about RedCarpet as well as it does a lot of work for
you (i.e. updating packages :-)).

Red Carpet also tends to install a lot of Ximian-specific versions of
libraries etc., which can get you into dependancy hell if you use other
package managers as well (apt, yum, ...). I last used it over a year ago
so maybe it's improved, but even the recent Fedora Core 2 Release Notes
warn you about this.

I use a combination of RedCarpet 2.x and apt-get (wonderful stuff--see for almost all my
package management with RH9, and have had no problems.  Note that to use
Red Carpet there is no need (or reason, that I can fathom) to install
Ximian Desktop 2.  That WILL send you into dependency hell, from my
experience, and I didn't like the way it looked anyway.

Note that I don't think Red Carpet (Ximian) has any support for Fedora,
so it's no wonder that the FC2 Release Notes say not to use it to try
and install RH9 packages or whatever.

And one last thing: if you're installing RPMs "by hand", once you're
sure you've got everything you need to satisfy the dependencies, put ALL
the RPM filenames on the same line after "rpm -Uvh" and RPM will install
them in the required order  (same thing happens if you use "*.rpm", but
I don't recommend that if you have any unrelated RPMs in the same
