    Question RPM mutual dependency

    Is it possible to download rpm files from this k3b page for an offline installation? When I try to install k3b-1.0.5-0.pm.6.x86_64.rpm or lang-1.0.5-0.pm.6.x86_64.rpm the system says that they depend on each other

    Go with --nodeps switch... As far as i know... It wont be a proble using nodeps.. Unless there is no other dependencies

    Mutual dependency is not a problem, just install both in one go:

    rpm -i package1.rpm package2.rpm

    or whatever the equivalent is with repo tools on top of rpm.

    Thanks for answers!
    Both methods worked for me.

    But it's better to solve it without using --nodeps because that could cause other dependencies to be ignored.
