These are indeed equivalent. I have been tweaking the dependencies in

Are all of these error messages produced by RPM when you go to install?
If you can tell rpm to "force" or "ignore", you may well find gourmet
Alternatively, you might try installing from source, which is really
pretty trivial. You download the archive, then untar it (using tar
-zxvf NAME_OF_ARCHIVE). cd into the directory and type (as root):
python setup.py install
If you have proper dependencies, you should be all set.
