Did you try with --force & --nodeps ??

#rpm -Uvh <rpm-name.rpm> --force --nodeps

FYI...

--replacefiles Can Mean Trouble Down the Road

While --replacefiles can make today's difficult install go away, it can mean big headaches in the future. When the time comes for erasing the packages involved in a file conflict, bad things can happen.

What bad things? Well, files can be deleted. Here's how, in three easy steps:

   1.

      Two packages are installed. When the second package is installed, there is a conflict with a file installed by the first package. Therefore, the --replacefiles option is used to force RPM to replace the conflicting file with the one from the second package.
   2.

      At some point in the future, the second package is erased.
   3.

      The conflicting file is gone!



Adding --force to an install command is a way of saying "Install it anyway!" In essence, it adds --replacepkgs and --replacefiles  to the command. Like a big hammer, --force is an irresistible force [4]  that makes things happen. In fact, the only thing that will prevent a --force'ed install from proceeding is a dependency conflict.
