Hello there,

At least for hours there are three schedules tasks (1) that are

Why scheduled tasks not run on ppc64le builders ?
Is there a scheduler problem in OBS ?
How to track the reason why those tasks are not processed ?


I see the same in openSUSE Factory staging areas, like for

The biggest worry is that even though I build disabled this

The dirty flag on the repository disappeared

This package currently has in the meta data:
<disable arch="ppc64le"/>

And status is scheduled for ppc64le... this can't but indicate an

The package does not have a _constraints file, so any ppc worker
be able to pick it up.


So, Dinar's issue is different - but how can it be that a package
has been marked build disabled in the meta for way > 24 hours is
marked scheduled (and has been scheduled for a long time before,
without being picked up)?

The typical situation for this are worker constraints which can not
fullfilled. Means the dispatcher never sees a worker which qualifies
be able to build it. Eg. by requiring a cpu type which does not

Unfortunatly, we do not have a propper error reporting for such

set as build disabled in the package meta, yet, the current status is
'scheduled'... (disabling was done in an attempt for the scheduler to
'see' some changes... which obviously turned out very unexpected).

it is not disabled for this project: it is a package which is only there
due to project link. In this situation all flags are ignored by default,
because they refer to the origin project.

I see at least two more packages in the Staging:E area with the exact
same behavior (the same packages do build in other Staging areas, so
the constraint theory sounds a bit simplified here)
