OBS Mailing List Summary, Week 20

Here is a summary of activity on the opensuse-buildservice mailing list during week 20:

§§§

Damian had a problem with the tar_scm service checking out bazaar repos from launchpad, but he solved it himself after finding an example on OBS using bzr tar_scrm service. See the thread for details.

§§§

Liquider has a subproject where he is building binaries, but he wants to have these binaries published elsewhere (in the main project, in this case).

  • Roman suggested that he look at osc aggregatepac

§§§

Rick noticed that allow_anonymous and new_user_registration were moved into /configuration API as anonymous and registration. But he cannot seem to configure these settings via the API.

  • Stefan pointed him to the correct osc api incantations.

§§§

Ruediger wants to know if it is possible to run a command from the %build section as root.

§§§

Ruediger also wants to know if it’s possible to BuildRequire a package without installing all its dependencies? He just needs some headers.

  • Jan and Andreas both answered that this indicates a need to split the package into subpackages. If there is a subpackage containing just the headers, this could be BuildRequired.

§§§

Michael announced that new build repository handling has been enabled for home projects. OBS maintains an internal repo used for building (the “:full tree”). The useforbuild flag can be used to configure if built packages are copied into the tree or not.

§§§

Andreas thinks something is wrong with the i586 Arch_Extra image – it is continually in “unresolvable” state with “nothing provides gcc-libs = 4.9.0-2 needed by gcc”. The 64-bit version looks fine.

  • Michael found the issue and triggered a re-sync.
