Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Download on Demand

I have been using this for a while and it works ok :

<download arch="i586" metafile="primary.xml" mtype="rpmmd"

However for arm I had an issue with :

<download arch="armv7el" metafile="primary.xml" mtype="rpmmd"

because the arch in the primary file was called "armv7l", I had to sed
replace it with armv7el and symlink the packages directory, otherwise
OBS rejected the primary.xml

That worked because it is a local repository, but would it make sense to
have another attribute to set the equivalent arch to look for in the
primary.xml for cases of remote repos ?

Hi all,

A few weeks (or is it months? I have no sense of time these days) ago,
I asked where the download-on-demand patch was and was provided with
it. But it failed to patch, so that leads me to my second question -
has it been merged into master?

IIRC, Marcus Hüwe completed the support.

Please try it via specifing the following in project meta data:

<download arch=.. baseurl=.. mtype=.. metafile=.. />

However, the backend support for this is disabled on

And when you got it working, I would be happy to receive a text for our
book :)
