Install basic toolchain:

yum groupinstall 'Development Tools'
yum install subversion cmake

Install the yum-utils package to get yum-builddep:

yum install yum-utils

On Fedora 16 kdesrc-build will complain about qmake being missing. It is located at /usr/bin/qmake-qt4. Simply create a symbolic for qmake:

ln -s qmake-qt4 /usr/bin/qmake

Fedora 12 (and less) still ship with KOffice 1.6.

yum-builddep will install dependencies for the KDE 3 version.

yum-builddep koffice-suite


It generally requires the following tools installed:

yum install doxygen graphviz qt-doc

Module prerequisites

To install prerequisites just run

yum-builddep module-name

Where "module-name" is the name of the module you want to install
