Whoa! Please don't create the false impression I would ever suggest
using "yast2 -i". ;-) I think one should either use

  yast sw_single

to invoke the YaST module "Install and Remove Software" (which, as a
default, does dependency checking/resolving) or use

  rpm -U ...

to install packages, as you suggested yourself.
