Dear OBS list,
I've tried to find out how I can set environment variables while building dpkg packages via OBS. I would have assumed that maybe the project config would provide something like that, but I failed to find any.
The concrete usage example is to pass something like DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=parallel=N which then most sane debian packages turn into "-jN" during make.
I also grep'ed for DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS in the OBS source code, but there were no hits.
Right now I'm watching a 16-core machine building a Linux kernel with "-j1" since I cannot figure out what is the designated way in OBS to specify such environment variables.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
p.s.: I previously had to switch from public build.opensuse.org to a local installation of OBS due to the public build.opensuse.org workers consistently failing builds with "no space left on device" while trying to build a linux kernel package. And I already had stripped it down to only one variant + flavor + architecture. Not a complaint, just noticing it. I would have expected kernel builds not to be that uncommon.
