OBS Mailing List Summary, Week 07

Here is a summary of activity on the opensuse-buildservice mailing list during week 07:


In the build_patchrpmcheck_scr: line 1: fg: no job control thread, Dmitriy asks about a “no job control” error in his build log.

  • The list noted that “no job control” usually means undefined macros. In Dmitry’s case he was missing BuildRequires: desktop-file-utils


Coolo announced that he extended the comment system in osc (the OBS command-line client). There are additional routes and comments now have IDs. See the announcement for details.


In this thread, Roger Oberholzer and Martin Koegler discussed the finer details of the mingw32 build environment.


Christian wrote that all packages in his private OBS instance (connected to api.opensuse.org) are ‘broken’ after modifying the repository configuration.

  • Adrian responded that it sounds like a (temporary?) DNS lookup issue, either on Christian’s system or on his provider’s DNS.
