I am trying to build a custom kernel, following the guide on fedora wiki the error occurs when Im installing the build dependencies Code: [john@lunatech ~]$ sudo yum-builddep kernel-2.6.31.12-174.2.3.fc12.src.rpm [sudo] password for john: Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit Traceback (most recent call last):   File "/usr/bin/yum-builddep", line 196, in <module>     util = YumBuildDep()   File "/usr/bin/yum-builddep", line 64, in __init__     self.main()   File "/usr/bin/yum-builddep", line 93, in main     self.get_build_deps(opts)   File "/usr/bin/yum-builddep", line 173, in get_build_deps     for srpm in toActOn: UnboundLocalError: local variable 'toActOn' referenced before assignment Does anyone know the reason for this?
