I am trying to rum my rpm package but getting this dependencies error.

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh /root/x86_64/asterisk- 
error: Failed dependencies:

To resolve the dependency error i used following command.

[root@localhost ~]# yum-builddep asterisk- 
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirrors.hns.net.in
 * extras: mirrors.hns.net.in
 * updates: mirrors.hns.net.in
Checking for new repos for mirrors
Error: No Package found for libsrtp-devel

I am using CentOS 5.6 which is installed in VirtualBox on Fedora-15.

The yum-buliddep command installs dependencies for building a package from source, not installing it. If you use yum to install the RPM, it will install dependencies from remote sources if the packages are available.

yum install /root/x86_64/asterisk-

On older versions of yum, you may need to use localinstall for a local file:

yum localinstall /root/x86_64/asterisk-

Thanks for making it clear, rpm which is created in Fedora will it work in CentOS as well? – juned Nov 6 '12 at 7:22
@juned In some cases it will, but in most cases, it won't. It is likely that it will be linked against library versions that are not available in CentOS. – jordanm Nov 6 '12 at 7:23
that means better idea is to create separate rpm's for different OS's – juned Nov 6 '12 at 7:25
@juned Yes, you can develop and test the spec files on any system you want, but it should always be built on the OS that you are targeting. There is a reason the version number in the RPM contains "fc15". If the OS you are targeting lacks dependencies to build, it will also lack dependencies to install. – jordanm Nov 6 '12 at 7:26
Thanks a lot,my last question is if i know particular rpm needs a specific dependencies so cant i package that dependencies with main rpm file? so while running a single rpm -ivh foo.rpm command package as well as dependencies will get install. is it possible? – juned Nov 6 '12 at 7:33
