I am trying to install an rpm, namely the Oracle 10g database for CentOS 6 for testing an app.

The problem is that the machine the OS is installed on does not have access to the internet and there is a list of dependencies that the 10g needs which also have other library dependencies.

With 'yum' being unhelpful in this case, is there somewhere or a way dependencies for an rpm can be downloaded without having download each one individually?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do you have the required packages on a local medium (e.g. CD, DVD, etc.)? rpm -i --aid <main Oracle RPM> should help. – Mikel Aug 7 '12 at 23:39
Unfortunately I only have the 10g package and not the package for the dependencies. – dev_in_training Aug 8 '12 at 8:08
