OBS Mailing List Summary, Week 03
Here is a summary of activity on the opensuse-buildservice mailing list during week 03:
Hans van Maaren wrote that he installed the latest OBS appliance behind a proxy. The openSUSE proxy seems to work fine, but the proxy settings for OBS do not work. He based his proxy settings on http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Build_Service_private_installation. Yet despite best efforts, the Add Repositories page is empty.
- Martin Weber, who runs OBS behind a proxy, provided some pointers: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-buildservice/2014-01/msg00119.html
Roger Oberholtzer would like to change the name of an existing
project that contains packages. How to proceed, when
a rename option? The list suggested that he do something like this:
for pkg in $(osc ls oldprj); do osc copypac oldprj pkg newprj; done
Greg Banks posted a question regarding a package that requires a particular
header file (
valgrind.h) to build. He would like to build the package for
RHEL, but OBS cannot find the RHEL devel RPM containing this header file.
- A lively discussion ensued: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-buildservice/2014-01/msg00049.html
Flavio Castelli asked the list if there is a way to prevent OBS from stripping all binaries at the end of the build. His package contains two binaries, both written in Go, and the checksum (unstripped) of one is hard-coded in the other.
- A discussion ensued, but at the time this summary went to print, a solution had yet to emerge: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-buildservice/2014-01/msg00060.html
On January 15, Greg Freemyer asked if the old Hermes notifications (which have been replaced by the new notifications) will be turned off at some point, or if each person will have to log in and turn them off manually?
- Coolo responded that he has already disabled all default subscriptions of Hermes. (“If you still get Hermes notifications, you created these subscriptions yourself and you need to disable them yourself too.”)
