Can any one tell me how to resolve the dependencies while installing any rpm? I am using RHEL5 (unlisenced). so cant run yum command. Before RHEL5 i was usign --aid parameter and if the rpm was in the same directory it resolve the dependencies.
Now sometimes i have to mention so many rpm in the same command but even then it doesnt work.

Does someone know how to resolve the dependencies while installing the rpm?

    copy the following and install the rpm
    rpm -Uhv
    then its done, you are ready to use yum with 9000+ rpm's in its repository

    I installed the rpm as

    rpm -Uhv

    Again, I am unable to install the packages with yum command

    [root@example ~] yum install mod_ssl
    Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    This system is not registered with RHN.
    RHN support will be disabled.
    Setting up Install Process
    Setting up repositories
    Reading repository metadata in from local files
    Parsing pachage install arguments
    No Match for argumnet: mod_ssl
    Nothing to do

    Any idea what should I do now?
    Many thanks.
