Hi Adrian,

A couple of questions inline to clarify what I have to do:

Thanks for your response Philipp,

To confirm, yes my local instance is connected to
Can I have my local obs connected with and at the same

time create another project that tracks packages locally ?

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "If you want to hold the

project including the packages locally".

Doesn't creating another project and adding rpm/deb manually mean that

I'm holding the packages and and the project locally ?

If you want to binary import some packages, create some repo somewhere via
osc or webui. Ideally in an empty project without sourceshe

Afterwards, you can create the :full directory in


and copy your binaries inside. Last, you need to tell the scheduler to
scan it via

obs_admin --rescan-repository <project> <repository> <architecture>

If this new repo has the Ubuntu repo inside it's path, it is enough to
build against your new repo in your projects.

Let's see if I understand this correctly:

- create a project with the desired repository

- I've created
/srv/obs/build/home\:stefan\:localubuntu/xUbuntu_13.04/x86_64/\:full on
the obsserver


- I do a osc co of home\:stefan\:localubuntu on my laptop
- I add miro as a package inside this project + osc add and commit

no, you should not create packages or build in that project. It will work,
but you will always have the problem to sort out what is injected and
what not.

- do I run rescan-repository after adding the miro packages ?

just copy the binaries you want to inject into that :full directory and run
the rescan.

- Where should I add the ubuntu repo ? "If this new repo has the Ubuntu
repo inside it's path..."

If your home:stefna:localubuntu/xUbuntu_13.04 repo has a path pointing
to the standard Ubuntu:13.04/standard repo, you can use your repo in other
projects as path. It will get packages from both projects, but prefer the
packages from your :localubuntu

Hi all,

I'm trying to build miro 6 for ubuntu 12.04 ubuntu 13.04 using my

self hosted version of OBS.

My self hosted version of OBS is 2.3.8.

The problem with miro is that it needs python-support which exists

only in the ubuntu universe repositories.

Reading the opensuse buildservice mailing list I saw that you can't

add ubuntu's universe to opensuse because of legal issues.

How can I add ubuntu universe to my self-hosted version of OBS ?

You interconnect your self-hosted OBS with the SUSE one, right?
In this case you can't add RPMs to the repository because the
rpms are directly downloaded from the SUSE OBS. I can provide you one
(not the only?) solution. You create a project in your instance with
prj information, prjconf and the packages
in /srv/obs/build/$DISTRO/$ARCH/:full/ to build without the suse OBS
interconnect. Here you can add the rpms/debs you wish. Maybe the most
from an Install DVD and the additional packages from a repository (for
ubuntu the universe repository). But you need a bit free space per
distro. For example for Ubuntu you need about 10GB space (all
packages twice for i586 and x86_64 arch).

If you want to hold the project including the packages locally, I'll
answer you with the steps to do that.
