Builddep Command

Synopsis

dnf5 builddep [options] [<package>...]

Description

Install missing dependencies for building an RPM package.

WARNING:

Build dependencies in a source package (i.e. src.rpm) might be different than you would expect because dependencies were evaluated according macros set on the package build host.

Options

-D "macro expr", --define="macro expr"
Define a rpm macro. Set the value "expr" to the macro "macro" when parsing spec files. Does not apply for source rpm files.
--allowerasing
Allow erasing of installed packages to resolve any potential dependency problems.
--skip-unavailable
Allow skipping packages that are not possible to downgrade. All remaining packages will be downgraded.
--allow-downgrade
Enable downgrade of dependencies when resolving the requested operation.
--no-allow-downgrade
Disable downgrade of dependencies when resolving the requested operation.

Arguments

<package>
Either path to .src.rpm, .nosrc.rpm or .spec file or package available in a repository.
