Where do rpm dependancys come from ?

TIMFOX123 asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-14
We are in an environment we can not just use yum to install stuff because in the past it has installed extra rpms that have crashed systems or were not approved.

Installing rpm's from the rpm -qvh command does not take care of dependencys very well ( it may install them our of order and fail a depenancy ).

How can I find out the discrepancys of an rpm without  actually installing it with Yum ?
