My guess is that you get failed dependancies because the RPM is built
against newer libraries. Libraries tend to depend on other libraries and
so on, so you'll end up with replacing your whole system.

The two easiest options are:
1. Upgrade to a newer distribution
2. Get the SRPM and compile the RPM yourself - it will then be built
against your libraries and should install without errors. (you will
probably have to install some additional development packages to compile
the RPM though).
