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

Synopsis

yum-builddep package

Description

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.

Examples

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

Files

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:

/etc/yum.conf
/etc/yum/repos.d/
/var/cache/yum/
