2.5.11.54. MockRebuildΒΆ

The MockRebuild step rebuilds a SourceRPM package:

Mock (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Projects/Mock) creates chroots and builds packages in them. It populates the changeroot with a basic system and the packages listed as build requirement. The type of chroot to build is specified with the root parameter. To use mock your Buildbot user must be added to the mock group.

from buildbot.plugins import steps

f.addStep(steps.MockRebuild(root='default', srpm='mypkg-1.0-1.src.rpm'))

The step takes the following parameters

root

Uses chroot configuration defined in /etc/mock/<root>.cfg.

resultdir

The directory where the logfiles and the SourceRPM are written to.

srpm

The path to the SourceRPM to rebuild.

Note

It is necessary to pass the resultdir parameter to let the master watch for (and display) changes to build.log, root.log, and state.log.
