I'm trying to install Synergy on Red Hat Linux 5.4 but I'm getting the below errors:

rpm -ivh synergy-1.3.8-Linux-x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies: is needed by synergy-1.3.8-1.x86_64 is needed by synergy-1.3.8-1.x86_64 is needed by synergy-1.3.8-1.x86_64

I have a Red Hat CD with me which may contain these dependencies but I'm not sure how to install them. I do not have a license for Red Hat, so I cannot use Red Hat support.

I tried creating a repo file which points to /media DVD and tried to use yum install synergy directly but that didn't work either.

If the CD doesn't contain these dependencies, what other options are available for me?

Why are you using RHEL if you don't have a license? You do have other options. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Nov 2 '11 at 4:49
I want to try out on Red Hat only since I've everything setup on my red hat & I don't want to switch to another OS for now. – Mike Nov 2 '11 at 4:51
Not having access to the repos will significantly cut down what you can try. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Nov 2 '11 at 4:53
You can use the Fedora repositories. – new123456 Nov 2 '11 at 20:35
