I'm using y2pmbuild for the first time. I'm trying to build a package for tellico. I did the configurations for y2pmbuild using the tutorials available on the Wiki. My question is: when I do `y2pmbuild tellico.spec` the y2pmbuild script begins to install packages, even if they are already installed. Why?
Because it is not building the package inside the running system, but in a "special environment", to assure consistency and to be able to build packages for other (older) distributions.
