Hi, thanks for the 14.7!
Was trying a source build according to the insructions. prepare toolchain completed well, but prepare chroot had issues initially. It aborted because of a missing file.
For some reason, there is no /etc/mock/centos-6-x86_64.cfg after prepare toolchain, which seems to have yum installed mock in the first place.
So I tried the obvious, found that there is a default.cfg which points to something, and I linked centos-6-x86_64.cfg to the same thing. In /etc/mock:
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 17 Aug 3 09:44 centos-6-x86_64.cfg -> epel-6-x86_64.cfg
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 17 Aug 3 09:29 default.cfg -> epel-6-x86_64.cfg
After making this link, prepare_chroot worked! Now I am waiting for make to finish, seems to be chugging along quite nicely…
If there is a default.cfg already, why not use it instead of looking for the OS-specifig named cfg file?
I don’t know why /etc/mock didn’t have the proper config file, I’d like to know if anyone else had this issue. All the config filenames in /etc/mock are epel* or fedora* where most fedora* files are symlinks to similarly patterned epel* files. I suppose this may be reasonable considering the strong ties to centos. But a rose by any other name is no longer a rose in this case
