Hello everybody,
I need to install a RPM while I'm build an RPM ... or in other words, I
want to write into the .spec:

rpm -Uvh aStrangePackage.rpm

But I'll give an error because I don't have root privilegies and rpm
installation fails.
How can I do that ???

You should use BuildRequires. If you add "BuildRequires: aStrangePackage" to
your specfile the obs will install the package before the build starts. So
if you need a package for building you have to add it to the BuildRequires.
