Re: [opensuse-buildservice] packages keeps in scheduled state in private OBS instance
Hi Hans-Peter

I can at least answer one of the questions ;-)

Do workers really need swap?

Yes, the build result is extracted from the worker via the swap volume (after
finishing, the build process writes the
results into the swap device inside the VM, then the obsworker extracts them
from "outside" the VM).
The reason for this is (at least I believe so), that the process is file system
agnostic (you could in theory run a
totally new VM with a fancy file system for building on a pretty old host with
a kernel that does not understand that
file system) and you don't have to mess around with loop devices, partitioning
etc.
