Resolve RPM Dependencies

I'm trying to install 11gR2 on Oracle's unbreakable Linux 64 bit.  In the documentation the pre-installation requirements include RPM(s) one of which is elfutils-libelf-devel-0.125.   When I try rpm -ivhelfutils-libelf-devel-0-137.3 el5.x86_64rpm, I get a message missing dependency elfutils-libelf-sevel-static-x86_64 = 0.137-3.el5 is needed by package elfutils-libelf-devel-0135-3.el5.x86_64 (/elfutils-libelf-devel-0.137-3.el5.x86_64)
Im trying to use the 5.7 of Oracle's Unbreakable Linux.  The more i try to resolve one the dependencies the more dependencies pop up.
Has anyone gone through that install and figured how to resolve and move on to the install short of just installing on Windows?? :-)

yum install elfutils-libelf-devel

Here is hot to setup yum repository if your yum doesn't work

Yum is installed on the machine, so that is not the problem.  If instead of rpm, i enter:
[root@localhost Server]# yum install elfutils-libelf-devel-0.137-3.el5.x86_64.rpm
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with ULN.

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package.


OK, so if i go for the *static* business, it puts me into some other loop.

1. Make sure internet connection

2. No .rpm, you are install from internet, not local rpm file, just
yum  install  elfutils-libelf-devel  elfutils-libelf-devel-static
