You can safely ignore that dependency, tixwish is only used by a gui
frontend to coda (advice_srv), which is unnecessary for running a coda 
client. The tixwish->tixwish-rpm-version softlink is present on some of
our systems, and it manages to confuse rpm-dependencies.

Perfect, now you only need to do:

 rpm -Uhv --nodeps coda-debug-client-4.6.1-1.i386.rpm
 venus-setup 40000
 venus &
 tail -f /usr/coda/etc/console
 # wait for "Venus starting..."
 ls /coda

Please try, and mail me or linux-coda when you get stuck somewhere!
