Summary: osc build doesn't
Classification: openSUSE
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: BuildService
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: mmeeks@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: adrian@xxxxxxxxxx
Found By: ---

So, I checkout a repository, and do:

$ osc build
Building mingw32-libpng.spec for openSUSE_Factory/i586
**** Getting buildinfo from server
**** wrong repo/arch?

I get this acute feeling of powerlessness, and deja-vu reading this. It is the
moral equivalent of:

**** Something went wrong !!! ****

;-) any chance the software could elaborate ? clearly it knows a lot that I
don't but it would be nice if it could let on in at least a few ways:

What repo / arch values would it accept ? [ presumably it knows the valid
combinations by now ].

Why is my repo / arch not good enough ? [ surely this stuff is built in a
chroot jail, that should work ~anywhere ? ].

Where do I go to find help on this ? the manual or build --help is not so
helpful in this regard.

I know - almost certainly the answer is obvious - if you already understand the
build service; but ultimately I don't want to learn everything up-front,
incremental deepening of knowledge is fine for me :-) and this is one of the
key commands in the:


cycle, that could (perhaps) be more helpful :-)

[ thanks for putting up with my rant ].
