What dependency errors are you getting? You may need to download some 
additional RPMs that your new X RPMs require.

You can use yum-arch command to create a repository from a local dir.
Then use file:/// URL in /etc/yum.conf to point to that repository. Look
at man for yum-arch and yum.conf to get the details.
