I got an embedded device with RPM on (no Yum). The way I install packages now is by downloading the proper .rpm file from rpmfind.net and running rpm -i package.rpm. This process repeats for every missing library until the program finally runs.

There must be a better way to do it.
Can I automatically solve the dependencies on my desktop computer, copy .rpm files on the embedded device and install everything with a command like rpm -i *?

You may want to try new project MicroDNF https://github.com/rpm-software-management/microdnf This is just small binary and will resolve the dependecies and install them.
