I am having trouble because when I try to install the Open Office RPM's I find that everyting relies on openoffice.org-core-01*.rpm being installed

so then I try to install this file but it won't install because openoffice.org-core-09*.rpm needs to be installed

so then I try to install openoffice.org-core-09*.rpm and it wont install becase it requieres openoffice.org-core-01*.rpm to be installed

And so I get stuck in an infinite loop trying to install one then the other

So is it actually possible to install the software?

You have to pass the names of all the rpm files together--rpm will analyze them as a set and find that all the dependencies are mutually resolved.

Here's the command I use:

$ rpm -ivh openoffice*.rpm

I used:
Code:

rpm -Uvih *rpm

But that's because I just followed the instructions at http://download.openoffice.org/common/instructions.html#linux

-U (update) do the same that -i (install) when the package is not installed: having both, U and i in the same command is redundant. I always use:
rpm -Uvh *.rpm
