How to tell BinDeps I don't have permission for package installer


#1

How can I tell BinDeps that I do not have permissions for yum.

I frequently have to edit a package’s deps/build.jl files to comment out the provides(Yum,...) line to get around lack of sudo permissions.

afaics you cannot. Editing the build description seems to be the only way.
But how do you run packages without solving the binary dependencies?


#3

I have been fortunate that the packages have always had a provides(Sources,...) entry
