Dependency fail for

Hi Everybody.

I use RPM version 4.3.3 on Redhat 4, and get an error while trying to install a package that requires java.

rpm -iv RPMS/i386/nds_vgs+-3.0.3-1_es4.0.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by nds_vgs+-3.0.3-1_es4.0.i386 is needed by nds_vgs+-3.0.3-1_es4.0.i386

I have installed jdk-1.5.0_06-fcs package, and JAVA_HOME seems to be set properly: /usr/java/jdk1.5.0_06/
The package doesn't seem to "provide" the required libraries:

[root at vgvs_7 rpm]# rpm -q --provides  jdk-1.5.0_06-fcs
jre = 1.5.0_06
j2sdk = 1.5.0_06
j2re = 1.5.0_06
jdk = 2000:1.5.0_06-fcs

I do not want to use --nodeps. Any ideas?
