[vox-tech] resolving dependencies with XFree86-4.3.0-3

	I'm running Red Hat 8 and I am trying to upgrade from XFree86-4.2.0-72
to XFree86-4.3.0-3 and it seems that this site has
(ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/rawhide/1.0/i386/RedHat/RPMS/) has all the Red
Hat packages I need.

	However, when I try to install the newer XFree86 I get the following

[root@speedy gnome]# rpm -Uvh  XFree86-4.3.0-3.i386.rpm
XFree86-devel-4.3.0-3.i386.rpm XFree86-libs-4.3.0-3.i386.rpm
XFree86-libs-data-4.3.0-3.i386.rpm XFree86-xfs-4.3.0-3.i386.rpm
XFree86-xdm-4.3.0-3.i386.rpm XFree86-twm-4.3.0-3.i386.rpm
warning: XFree86-4.3.0-3.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID
error: Failed dependencies:
        kernel-drm = 4.3.0 is needed by XFree86-4.3.0-3
        Xft-devel >= is needed by (installed)
        Xft is needed by (installed) libgnomeui-2.0.3-3
        Xft >= 1.9.1 is needed by (installed) qt-3.0.5-17

unresolved dependencies on the Xft. I currently have 


installed. I'm not exactly sure how an rpm works, but my guess as to
what is going on is that one of the XFree86 rpms contains outdated Xft

	To resolve these dependencies should I find new XFree86 rpms or is it
possible to use the ones I have downloaded already? 

I'm afraid 'rpm -Uvh' is about the extent of my rpm knowledge and I
don't have a clue where to go from here.
