The YUM equivalent to apt-get build-dep

Written by James McDonald

September 25, 2011

I’ve been yo’yoing (a word only Words with Friends would accept) between Ubuntu and Fedora and during my periods at the Apogee from one or the other distribution I find I want to do something in one or the other that I know the command of in the other or vice versa.

So my question for today was how do I do an apt-get build-dep gimp in Fedora

The answer:

yum-builddep gimp

The reason I want to build Gimp from source is that Gimp 2.7.3 finally has one Window instead of the pallet explosion effect it has at the moment and I want to try it.

Later out.

PS. I’m thinking of entering the 1st sentence in the worst blog sentence of 2011. What do you think?
