I'm running F9 x86_64 and F8 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.

Please put your thinking cap on. If you visited the site referenced
above to get gimp-2.6 you might have noticed  multiple packages were
available for downloading. The other packages were put there for a
reason!  You need install glib2-2.18 to satisfy the libgio dependency.

sorry, my bad. I actually downloaded all of them into same directory and did
"sudo smart install gimp-2.6.0-1jv.fc8.i386.rpm" expecting that smart will
pickup the dependencies from right there. Didn't realize that you have to
put the names of all the packages as an argument.

thanks for being patient with me

Smart is a fine tool for updating, upgrading and managing packages.
However, you would have gotten faster results using rpm; e.g. "sudo
rpm -ivh *.rpm".


maybe, but smart has the advantage which I like. In case you have a local *.rpm with unsatisfied dependencies on your system, installing this rpm through "smart install" will make smart pull all of those from the repositories on the fly (provided they are available there), instead of spitting the angry error messages into STDOUT like "rpm -ivh" does. That was my motivation.
