    Hi,

    I just found out that my VPS hasn't yum installed. So I found this guide to install it: http://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/BrokenVserver

    After the step
    Code:
    rpm -Uvh *.rpm
    I got quite many dependencies errors.
    Code:
    [root@bg yum]# rpm -Uvh *.rpm
    warning: python-2.4.3-19.el5.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID e8562897

    [root@bg yum]#
    

    Seems to me that the hosting company have installed a minimal CentOS.

    Is there any way to use the rpm command to get all those dependent packages as well?


    Regards,

    You must download them to the directory from which you're running the rpm command.
