I had the same problem. I found, though, the dependencies were on remote
machines such as the mirror at kernel.org. What I did was download the
missing dependencies and install them with 'rpm -ivh', then grabbed a2ps
and 'rpm -Fvh'. Things have gone smoothly since then, but I've not
figured out why 'yum' couldn't do this. Perhaps some bug ...
