RPM Obstacles



I'm trying to install a new package I found on the Internet.  When I try
to install it from Nautilus it runs through the "Calculating package
dependencies" (or whatever that screen says), but when it gets to the
part where it should list failed dependencies or offer the Continue
button, it just shuts down.  When I try from the shell prompt with 
rpm -Fvh <packagefilename>.rpm and hit <ENTER> it doesn't give any kind
of output whatsoever but returns me to the shell prompt.  I see this
behavior with almost every rpm I try to install that doesn't come from
Red Hat.  Security isn't that important to me on the machine I'm trying
to install these on.  How can I get them to install???
