Re: [opensuse-buildservice] Linking another package from within the same home project

Hi, I have a question on OSC. I have two packages in my home: project on How do I set up a link or something so that when I build one
package it knows to grab or link the other package from my home: project?


Home Project

Package 1 (built and online)
Package 2 (working on it locally)

So I have a BuildRequires in my SPECFILE for Package 2 and when I try to do an
osc build it complains that it can't find that package. So it is looking in
Factory but it should be looking in my home: project instead. How do I add
that to the second package so it knows where to look?

Is this related to adding a _link file to the Package 2?
You can build the package in your repository with a _link file
Heres an example of our local OBS instance with a link to the outside
<link project='' package='python-opsi'/>
Replace the repository after to the package repository you want to link against and the packagename.
If you link on the official OBS instance you can remove the prefix
