I'm try to install the sqlite-devel package on a Red Hat 4.1.2-51 x86_64 Linux server with rpm command:

# rpm -i
warning: /var/tmp/rpm-xfer.2rFvHg: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 217521f6
error: Failed dependencies:
        sqlite = 3.3.6-0.3.el4 is needed by sqlite-devel-3.3.6-0.3.el4.x86_64

When I chek the version I get this:

# rpm -V sqlite -v
S.5.....    /usr/bin/sqlite3
........    /usr/lib64/
S.5.....    /usr/lib64/
........    /usr/share/doc/sqlite-3.3.6
........  d /usr/share/doc/sqlite-3.3.6/README
........  d /usr/share/man/man1/sqlite3.1.gz

........    /usr/share/doc/sqlite-3.3.6
........  d /usr/share/doc/sqlite-3.3.6/README
........  d /usr/share/man/man1/sqlite3.1.gz

I try to install sqlite to local directory but unsuccessful:

# rpm -i --prefix=/home2/domain/soft/
warning: /var/tmp/rpm-xfer.VZmRAA: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 217521f6
error: package sqlite is not relocatable

How can I install this package?

Can't you just use the --nodeps option to install it without complaining? If sqlite-devel really does require sqlite however, you should download both rpm's in a folder and run rpm-iVh sqlite*.rpm so it auto-resolve its own dependencies.
