From the web client :
click on your project link (mine is surfzoid one):

near the "Build Repositories" click on the "+" to add some target

After what, i suggest you to use MonoOSC, it have some wizard for
write your first SPEC file and add your first package ....

I have an altered yast2-qt-pkg complete with original spec files that I
would like to build and make available in my home directory. My home
directory doesn't seem to exist yet also. I have already used rpmbuild
on it and it works. My account name is "plater"
I will explore MonoOSC later with a kde package I'm using to learn with.

I see it.

I've only built on obs project, but I found it easiest to start using
the web interface to create your project and initial setup. The more
advanced users seem to use the cli.

For a very simple package that builds look at my open2300 package.

To make an rpm, all you need is the tar.gz file and the .spec file.
The other 4 files are for building debs.


Hi Greg, I'm stuck on how to load or point to the package to be built in
either the web interface or osc. I'm now trying to use monoOSC from
contrib but that either refuses to connect or crashes. At least I have
managed to use rpmbuild to build a yast2-qt-pkg with a size column
modified to display => 1000.0 KiB in full. Anyway perseverance and
hacking always pays off.

Looks like you created a subproject and a package.

Now you just need to add your *.tar.gz file and your spec file.

Clicking add files at

Should take you to

Where you upload those 2 files.

Then on
you click add repository and tell it which distros you want to build


Thanks Greg I've completed all those steps and it's tried to build, now
I have to figure out how to link the dependencies to it, ie. libzypp,
satsolver-tools etc.
Thanks again
