Try something like 'rpm -Uvh gtk+*rpm' from the directory where you have all
of those RPMs.  That should upgrade gtk+, which should allow you to upgrade
everything else.

No, not really.  It's trying to upgrade GTK+ to a later version than
GTK+-devel is at, which it can't do.  Those two packages have to stay at the
same revision number.

If that suggestion doesn't work, can you send the output of 'rpm -Uvh *rpm'
from your october-gnome directory, so that we can take a look at exactly
what it's doing?  Thanks,
