This will not resolve the dependency problem.  It requires all the i686 
packages not the x86_64 packages I do not think it is a true x86_64 based 
package.  I would have to run it each time to see what the next depency it 
would fail on and install that i686 package until I finnally got it to run.  
Friggin' pain in the butt.
