NAME         top

       yum-builddep - install missing dependencies for building an RPM

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 list.

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 details:
