yum-builddep — install missing dependencies for building an RPM package


yum-builddep package


yum-builddep is a program which installs the RPMs needed to build the specified package.  The source RPM for the specified package must be available in a Yum repository (which will be automatically enabled, if it is disabled) or it can be a local source RPM or a spec file.


Download and install all the RPMs needed to build the kernel RPM:

yum-builddep kernel


As yum-builddep uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the information, it relies on YUM configuration for its default values like which repositories to use. Consult YUM documentation for details:

There are of course no bugs, but should you find any, you should first consult the FAQ section on http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq and if unsuccessful in finding a resolution contact the mailing list: yum-devel@lists.baseurl.org. To file a bug use http://bugzilla.redhat.com for Fedora/RHEL/Centos related bugs and http://yum.baseurl.org/report for all other bugs.
