I didn't know it was you. I follow your emails, but I had no way of
knowing that "guru" was you.

There is no

No, it isn't. But I'm not adding a new source to Yast and wait a full hour
for it to complete, in order to install a single rpm. I want to be able to
install rpms from the command line using the rpm command.

Normal rpms are built specifying the required rpms using the "requires"
token. That is probably missing.
