Hi Dennis,

we have problems doing a local build against our own OBS. It seems like osc

Can anybody tell me how this must be configured? I've already searched the
websides, but I don't find a solution to this.

Thanks in advance,


I am assuming that you *do* know a place where the package would be
found? There used to be a config directive for .oscrc which could define
URL templates that would be tried in order when downloading packages.
However, I can't find it anymore. I think nowadays the URL that the
client should use for downloading is not configured locally anymore, but
it is configured in the buildservice server and transmitted to the
client when it requests the "build info" for building. Therefore I would
presume that it is possible in your buildservice instance to define this
URL. If the URL is correct, it should lead to a working download.
