[Rpm-maint] RPM chain installing

I have not understood the question. Perhaps it is my fault.

The order of installation of the RPM packages is defined from the
- file and package - that are defined in the rpm(s). The task of the
resolver of the dependencies - rpm, yum, smart ecc-
are that to construct an direct graph of these  dependencies for
installing/updating the package in that order.

Naturally the dependencies must be defined in explicit (e.g. Requires: in
the SPEC ) or implicit (e.g. shared lib) way
in the rpm.

So, what is the problem you are trying to solve ?

Best Regards
