Re: [opensuse-buildservice] cpio fails to build, why?

John Kelly napsal(a):
I started a small opensuse 11.0 base system and bootstrapped it. All
packages succeeded except cpio, which fails. Can someone please look
in my project home:a23d56:opensuse-11.0-minimal:self, and see why this
fails. I did not make any changes to the 11.0 package, so I don't see
why it should fail. The rpms were created, how can it fail? Here is
the end of the log:
RPMLINT report:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 293, in <module>
File "", line 97, in main
File "", line 166, in runChecks
File "", line 178, in check
File "", line 146, in readlines
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:
System halted.

The problem might be that rpmlint needs cpio to unpack the rpms
(rpm2cpio ... | cpio -id). And there is no cpio package when building
cpio itself ;-). Try adding

Keep: cpio

to the project config (osc meta prjconf <your project> -e). See
