OBS Mailing List Summary, Week 16

Here is a summary of activity on the opensuse-buildservice mailing list during week 16:


Nico Kruber reported a dependency conflict in Arch (i586 only), resulting in “have choice for” errors. He suggested that it be fixed globally, and Michael complied.


Darin would like to quickly check out an entire repository – the one he is interested in has over 3,400 packages and checking out with osc will take a very long time.

  • a brief discussion ensued on how to speed up osc file transfers – Coolo noted that osc parses and recreates huge XML files all the time.


Matwey asked about his kiwi configuration. Coolo responded with some caveats.


Guillaume has a package that depends on another package in the same project. This latter package is actually a subpackage. Can someone look to see why the former package is still unresolvable?

  • Adrian posted some suggestions.
