didn't work exactly for me on x86_64

I had to use:
$ (echo config gpgcheck 0; echo localinstall java-1.5.0-sun*.rpm; echo run) > yum-cmd
(as root) #yum shell yum-cmd

to resolve some dependancies (libXp.x86_64 0:1.0.0-8
unixODBC-devel.x86_64 0:2.2.11-7.1
) that failed to get resolved using the centos howto's directions of:

Install the RPMs as user root: 

su -
cd /home/<username>/rpmbuild/RPMS/i586
rpm -Uvh java-1.5.0-sun-
rpm -Uvh java-1.5.0-sun-alsa-
rpm -Uvh java-1.5.0-sun-plugin-
