Install a bunch of dependencies at once?

Post by skyler440 » 2014/11/18 04:08:17

I am looking for a spreadsheet program for CentOS 5. I downloaded the RPM file for gnumeric and ran rpm -ivh.

Quite a few libraries that I needed were shown:

error: Failed dependencies:
libgda-3.so.3 is needed by gnumeric-1.6.3-5.Nau5x.i386
libgnomedb-3.so.4 is needed by gnumeric-1.6.3-5.Nau5x.i386
libgnomedb_graph-3.so.4 is needed by gnumeric-1.6.3-5.Nau5x.i386
libgnomedb_handlers-3.so.4 is needed by gnumeric-1.6.3-5.Nau5x.i386
libgnomedb_parser-3.so.4 is needed by gnumeric-1.6.3-5.Nau5x.i386
libgnomeprint-2-2.so.0 is needed by gnumeric-1.6.3-5.Nau5x.i386
libgnomeprintui-2-2.so.0 is needed by gnumeric-1.6.3-5.Nau5x.i386
libgoffice-1.so.2 is needed by gnumeric-1.6.3-5.Nau5x.i386

Is it possible to install all of these packages without trying to find the website for each, and then running them , only to find that each of them have dependencies.

Use yum
libreoffice includes a spreadsheet.

gnumeric is in the EPEL repository. Don't download random rpms for other distros and try to install them on CentOS.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!

I can't find a repo for libreoffice, and only see the .rpm file online when it says download. Does anybody know what repo libreoffice is on, if it supports 32 bit, and what would it be named "ex. yum install libreoffice"
