Fedora Core 6 Oldies
Sometimes you'll want to install an old rpm or even an rpm from another distro. The library names will be the same but often the package names have changed. It can be done with some care. First try installing it with yum. There will usually be some non-existant dependencies listed. Don't worry about the ones yum can't find. Track down and install the ones you can. Now force the install of the rpm:

rpm -ivh packagename --nodeps

Find out what executablese are installed and try running them from a terminal
rpm -q packagename --filesbypkg | grep /bin
/usr/bin/runme

Here we have a binary file named runme. Try running it from a terminal:
runme
error: missing library /usr/lib/library-name.so not found (example)

There will be some missing libraries noted. Try to find them with yum.

yum provides library-name.so
packagename.x86_64 matches

yum install packagename

Now try to run the application again. You might have to repeat these steps several times to get all the libraries.
