This week I had a need to install a self-compiled ooRexx interpreter on a 
64-bit Fedora Core
workstations. The installation package was created using the ooRexx CMake.

First "uname -a":

    Linux 5.0.14-200.fc29.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu May 9 10:46:15 UTC 
2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

When trying to install with rpm the following error message comes up:

    [rony@xyz xfer]$ rpm -i ooRexx-5.0.0-11875.fedora.x86_64-20190430.rpm
    error: Failed dependencies: is needed by ooRexx-5.0.0-1.x86_64 is needed by ooRexx-5.0.0-1.x86_64

Then trying to get information about the rpm content:

    [rony@blue-m xfer]$ rpm -qp --provides 
    config(ooRexx) = 5.0.0-1
    ooRexx = 5.0.0-1
    ooRexx(x86-64) = 5.0.0-1

    [rony@blue-m xfer]$ rpm -qp --requires 
    config(ooRexx) = 5.0.0-1
    rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
    rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
    rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1

Not having any working knowledge on rpm I would appreciate it a lot, if someone 
can advise how to
proceed from here.

If you need additional information then please advise how to fetch it from the 


P.S.: I could install ooRexx from the deb-package as dpkg was installed on that 
machine. The deb
package was created from the same sources.
