But I can't seem to figure out how to configure remote workers.
I need a x86_64 remote worker and I need a x86_32 remote worker (in xen)

So I can install the obs-worker package on the different machines but
how do I configure all these different machines to be used in my build
system. Can you give me some pointers/examples?

This worked for me:

On the worker machine, set OBS_STORAGE_SERVER /etc/sysconfig/obs-worker.
Then on the scheduler machine, set $srcserver and $reposerver in

BTW couldn't the $srcserver and $reposerver default to

   http://`hostname -f`:port

or something like that? This would make switching from a single-host
installation to a distributed setup much easier :)

Yes , this seems to work. It took me a while to find out that the workers gets his configuration file from the central server and is therefore overwritten every time you restart your worker.

Another small question: Can my sles10 box also build the sles9 packages if a add a SUSE:SLES-9 repository or do I have to run a worker on a sles9 machine to make it work?

Kind regards,
