You will find it here :

We as soon that we find where to host the 30GB tar of the MeeGo 1.2 boot strap, we will publish it as well.

We have fixed many issue related to the configuration of IP addresses changes during OBS appliance installation which shoudl help you.

Hi everybody

I've tried to start from scratch an OBS Private instance from the 2.2.90
appliance (64 bits) .
Preparing the Raid1 Disk Array and Writing the Appliance to a dedicated Disk
were fine.
The Appliance boot successfully and recognize my Raid Array a LVM .

Then I have updated the 2 following files
- /etc/sysconfig/proxy
- /usr/lib/obs/server/

In order to match my firewall settings
Then I reboot the appliance and everything were still fine

So I tried to my OBS instance to be Remotely linked to another using the WebUI
Whatever the target (opensuse or Meego) this failed . An I get :

OBS Web Interface Error:
Error Details:
Errorcode: unknown
Message: xpath for delete did not give exactly one node!"

Because, I have setup a Private instance with the 2.2.84 (32bits), I have a
copy of a working configuration file for this. So, I decided to create manually
the raw config File (using my backup):
<project name="Linked_Build">
<title>Remote access to OBS MeeGo Server</title>
<person userid="Admin" role="maintainer"/>
<person userid="Admin" role="bugowner"/>

This config was accepted by the WebUI.

Then I have created another project which id pointing to this one.
<project name="Applications">
<title>User applications with HMI</title>
<person userid="Admin" role="maintainer"/>
<person userid="Admin" role="bugowner"/>
<repository name="Builds">
<path project="Linked_Build:MeeGo:1.2:oss" repository="standard"/>

This was well accepted from the UI.

Then I upload a package in this project . This Package was successfully
building on my previous instance .
After uploading , nothing occurs (No Start building.)

then I walk in the UI and in the repository page, I found the "trigger rebuild"
button . When cliking the UI says :
remote error: access denied

To check my OBS connectivity, I've used osc from another computer with the
following .oscrc
apiurl =
su-wrapper = sudo
no_verify = 1


Where is the IP of my OBS server
When I'am launching the following command :

osc ls Linked_Build:MeeGo:1.2:oss

I can see the full listing for the MeeGo:1.2:oss packages. So the connectivity
of my OBS looks right (Correct firewall configuration)

What I'am missing in the configuration ? Do I need to some tweaking ?
Should I switch back to 2.2.84 (oups . Is there still some image online ?)
