how to install dependencies during package installation in Centos 6.5 and change repositories

Dear experts,

Recently I was trying to install a package called dbf2mysql into CentOS 6.5. Unfortunately, this package doesn't come with yum install. Instead I have to install with rpm command. When I tried to install the package, the message popped up some dependency files that I need for this package.

I am wondering if there is a way for CentOS to auto install those dependencies as well or there are other methods to resolve it?

I also like to find out what other ways I can change my repositories with CentOS because I got stuck with the yum update/upgrade at one of the file which it may seem to be a broken link.

Thanks.

1. You can install rpm package with all dependencies (if they are available in repositories you use, of course) with
# yum localinstall package.rpm

Open in new window

2. CentOS repositories are defined in /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo files. If you want to disable repo, edit its configuration and set enabled=0 option. You can also disable repo temporarily with
# yum --disablerepo=reponame

Open in new window

Try getting the package listed in a repo, pbone seems to have a version but you need to register to get the repo (free)

once you install the repo you should be able to do yum install dbf2mysql (or possibly get a bit further along than you are)
