All you should need is "--replacepkgs". The "--replacefiles" option that is part of the "--force" options can turn around a bite you if you are not careful. On the other hand, if there are still dependencies problems, "--force" is not going to help with that. One final note - the format is "rpm -i --replacepkgs <rpms>" - if you try to use install it is going to treat install as an rpm to be installed. (You can use --install) Personally, I like to use -ivh when installing, so I can see what is going on...
