i have successfully installed opensuse 11.3 and some packages with yast.

i have also installed autodesk maya 2009 rpm package. now the problem is when i try to install autodesk maya rpm package it connects to the internet and download some dependency files.

but how should i do the process on a machine with no internet connection?? as all our workstations doesnot have internet connectivity can i download those dependencies manually and point yast to such from a particular location.

any help is much appreciated


update: i installed with without net connection and pointing yast to opensuse dvd and it installed but never search for any dependencies. and the application in being started too. but when i install the rpm with internet connected it downloads a lots of other files and marks them for installation too. you can check this image check the dependencies for the selected package(maya) too. will there be a problem if i only install maya without all the other pacages selected ?

If you can get rpm-packages for all those dependencies you can just install them via "rpm --install package-name.rpm" as root. See the man pages for details.
