NAME         top

       yum-builddep - install missing dependencies for building an RPM pack‐

SYNOPSIS         top

       yum-builddep package

       yum-builddep /path/to/local/package.src.rpm

       yum-builddep /path/to/local/package.spec

DESCRIPTION         top

       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.

       Note, that only the BuildRequires information within the SRPM header
       information is used to determine build dependencies. This will
       specifically omit any dependencies that are required only for
       specific architectures.


       --target ARCH
              Set target architecture for spec parsing.

       --define 'MACRO EXPR'
              Define the rpm MACRO with value EXPR for spec parsing.

EXAMPLES         top

       Download and install all the RPMs needed to build the kernel RPM:
              yumdownloader --source kernel && rpm2cpio kernel*src.rpm |
              cpio -i kernel.spec && \
              yum-builddep kernel.spec

       The kernel includes specific BuildRequires dependencies for different
       architectures. In order to make sure that those dependencies are
       downloaded and installed, the SRPM should be downloaded, the .spec
       file extracted from it and used to determine the full dependency

FILES         top

       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
