osc — openSUSE build service command-line tool.

Synopsis

osc [GLOBALOPTS] SUBCOMMAND [OPTS] [ARGS...]
osc help SUBCOMMAND

Description

openSUSE build service command-line tool.

Commands

add

Mark files to be added upon the next commit

In case a URL is given the file will get downloaded and registered to be downloaded by the server as well via the download_url source service.

This is recommended for release tar balls to track their source and to help others to review your changes esp. on version upgrades.

usage:
osc add URL [URL...]
osc add FILE [FILE...]

addchannels

Add channels to project.

The command adds all channels which are defined to be used for a given source package. The source link target is used to lookup the channels. The command can be used for a certain package or for all in the specified project.

In case no channel is defined the operation is just returning.

Examples:
osc addchannels [PROJECT [PACKAGE]] Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-e, --enable-all
Enable all added channels including the ones disabled
by default.
-s, --skip-disabled
Skip disabled channels. Otherwise the source gets
added, but not the repositories.

addremove (ar)

Adds new files, removes disappeared files

Adds all files new in the local copy, and removes all disappeared files.

ARG, if specified, is a package working copy.

Usage:
osc addremove [ARGS...]

Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-r, --recursive
If CWD is a project dir then scan all package dirs as
well

aggregatepac

"Aggregate" a package to another package

Aggregation of a package means that the build results (binaries) of a package are basically copied into another project. This can be used to make packages available from building that are needed in a project but available only in a different project. Note that this is done at the expense of disk space. See http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Build_S… for more information.

The DESTPAC name is optional; the source packages' name will be used if DESTPAC is omitted.

usage:
osc aggregatepac SOURCEPRJ SOURCEPAC DESTPRJ [DESTPAC] Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-d, --disable-publish
disable publishing of the aggregated package
-m SRC=TARGET[,SRC=TARGET], --map-repo=SRC=TARGET[,SRC=TARGET]
Allows repository mapping(s) to be given as
SRC=TARGET[,SRC=TARGET]
--nosources
ignore source packages when copying build results to
destination project

api

Issue an arbitrary request to the API

Useful for testing.

URL can be specified either partially (only the path component), or fully with URL scheme and hostname ('http://...').

Note the global -A and -H options (see osc help).

Examples:
osc api /source/home:user
osc api -X PUT -T /etc/fstab source/home:user/test5/myfstab
osc api -e /configuration

Usage:
osc api URL

Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-a NAME STRING, --add-header=NAME STRING
add the specified header to the request
-T FILE, -f FILE, --file=FILE
specify filename to upload, uses PUT mode by default
-d STRING, --data=STRING
specify string data for e.g. POST
-e, --edit GET, edit and PUT the location
-X HTTP_METHOD, -m HTTP_METHOD, --method=HTTP_METHOD
specify HTTP method to use (GET|PUT|DELETE|POST)

branch (bco, branchco, getpac)

Branch a package

[See http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Build_S… for information on this topic.]

Create a source link from a package of an existing project to a new subproject of the requesters home project (home:branches:)

The branched package will live in
home:USERNAME:branches:PROJECT/PACKAGE if nothing else specified.

With getpac or bco, the branched package will come from one of
openSUSE:Factory (list of projects from oscrc:getpac_default_project) if nothing else is specfied on the command line.

In case of branch errors, where the source has currently merge conflicts use --linkrev=base option.

usage:
osc branch

-S"('osc bco' is a shorthand for this option)
--nodevelproject
do not follow a defined devel project (primary project
where a package is developed)

build

Build a package on your local machine

You need to call the command inside a package directory, which should be a buildsystem checkout. (Local modifications are fine.)

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output. BUILD_DESCR is either a RPM spec file, or a Debian dsc file.

The command honours packagecachedir, build-root and build-uid settings in .oscrc, if present. You may want to set su-wrapper = 'sudo' in .oscrc, and configure sudo with option NOPASSWD for /usr/bin/build.

If neither --clean nor --noinit is given, build will reuse an existing build-root again, removing unneeded packages and add missing ones. This is usually the fastest option.

If the package doesn't exist on the server please use the --local-package option. If the project of the package doesn't exist on the server please use the --alternative-project <alternative-project> option: Example:
osc build [OPTS] --alternative-project openSUSE:10.3 standard i586 BUILD_DESCR

usage:
osc build [OPTS] REPOSITORY ARCH BUILD_DESCR
osc build [OPTS] REPOSITORY ARCH
osc build [OPTS] REPOSITORY (ARCH = hostarch, BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
osc build [OPTS] ARCH (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
osc build [OPTS] BUILD_DESCR (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), ARCH = hostarch)
osc build [OPTS] (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), ARCH = hostarch, BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)

# Note: # Configuration can be overridden by envvars, e.g. # OSC_SU_WRAPPER overrides the setting of su-wrapper. # OSC_BUILD_ROOT overrides the setting of build-root. # OSC_PACKAGECACHEDIR overrides the setting of packagecachedir.

buildconfig

Shows the build config

Shows the build configuration which is used in building a package. This command is mostly used internally by the 'build' command.

The returned data is the project-wide build configuration in a format which is directly readable by the build script. It contains RPM macros and BuildRequires expansions, for example.

The argument REPOSITORY an be taken from the first column of the
'osc repos' output.

usage:
osc buildconfig REPOSITORY (in pkg or prj dir)
osc buildconfig PROJECT REPOSITORY

buildhistory (buildhist)

Shows the build history of a package

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output.

usage:
osc buildhist REPOSITORY ARCHITECTURE
osc buildhist PROJECT PACKAGE REPOSITORY ARCHITECTURE Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-l limit, --limit=limit
for setting the number of results
--csv generate output in CSV (separated by |)

buildinfo

Shows the build info

Shows the build "info" which is used in building a package. This command is mostly used internally by the 'build' subcommand. It needs to be called from within a package directory.

The BUILD_DESCR argument is optional. BUILD_DESCR is a local RPM specfile or Debian "dsc" file. If specified, it is sent to the server, and the buildinfo will be based on it. If the argument is not supplied, the buildinfo is derived from the specfile which is currently on the source repository server.

The returned data is XML and contains a list of the packages used in building, their source, and the expanded BuildRequires.

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH are optional. They can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output. If not specified, REPOSITORY defaults to the 'build_repositoy' config entry in your '.oscrc' and ARCH defaults to your host architecture.

usage:
in a package working copy:
osc buildinfo [OPTS] REPOSITORY ARCH BUILD_DESCR
osc buildinfo [OPTS] REPOSITORY (ARCH = hostarch, BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
osc buildinfo [OPTS] ARCH (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
osc buildinfo [OPTS] BUILD_DESCR (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), ARCH = hostarch)
osc buildinfo [OPTS] (REPOSITORY = build_repository (config option), ARCH = hostarch, BUILD_DESCR is detected automatically)
Note: if BUILD_DESCR does not exist locally the remote BUILD_DESCR is used

osc buildinfo [OPTS] PROJECT PACKAGE REPOSITORY ARCH [BUILD_DESCR]

Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-p DIR, --prefer-pkgs=DIR
Prefer packages from this directory when installing
the build-root

buildlog (bl, blt, buildlogtail)

Shows the build log of a package

Shows the log file of the build of a package. Can be used to follow the log while it is being written. Needs to be called from within a package directory.

When called as buildlogtail (or blt) it just shows the end of the logfile. This is useful to see just a build failure reasons.

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH are the first two columns in the 'osc results' output. If the buildlog url is used buildlog command has the same behavior as remotebuildlog.

Usage:
osc buildlog [ARGS...]

[REPOSITORY ARCH | BUILDLOGURL] Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-s, --strip-time

osc changedevelrequest PROJECT PACKAGE DEVEL_PROJECT [DEVEL_PACKAGE]

checkout (co)

Check out content from the repository

Check out content from the repository server, creating a local working copy.

When checking out a single package, the option --revision can be used to specify a revision of the package to be checked out.

When a package is a source link, then it will be checked out in expanded form. If --unexpand-link option is used, the checkout will instead produce the raw _link file plus patches.

usage:
osc co PROJECT [PACKAGE] [FILE]
osc co PROJECT # entire project
osc co PROJECT PACKAGE # a package
osc co PROJECT PACKAGE FILE # single file -> to current dir

while inside a project directory:
osc co PACKAGE # check out PACKAGE from project

with the result of rpm -q --qf '%{DISTURL}0 PACKAGE

automatically. Only works with write permissions in
target.
-r REPOSITORY, --repository=REPOSITORY
specify repository
-m TEXT, --message=TEXT
specify message TEXT

dependson (whatdependson)

Show the build dependencies

The command dependson and whatdependson can be used to find out what will be triggered when a certain package changes. This is no guarantee, since the new build might have changed dependencies.

dependson shows the build dependencies inside of a project, valid for a given repository and architecture. NOTE: to see all binary packages, which can trigger a build you need to
refer the buildinfo, since this command shows only the dependencies
inside of a project.

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output.

usage in package or project directory:
osc dependson REPOSITORY ARCH
osc whatdependson REPOSITORY ARCH

usage:
osc dependson PROJECT [PACKAGE] REPOSITORY ARCH
osc whatdependson PROJECT [PACKAGE] REPOSITORY ARCH

-r rev1[:rev2], --revision=rev1[:rev2]
If rev1 is specified it will compare your working copy
against the revision (rev1) on the server. If rev1 and
rev2 are specified it will compare rev1 against rev2
(NOTE: changes in your working copy are ignored in
this case)
-c rev, --change=rev
the change made by revision rev (like -r rev-1:rev).If
rev is negative this is like -r rev:rev-1.

distributions (dists)

Shows all available distributions

This command shows the available distributions. For active distributions it shows the name, project and name of the repository and a suggested default repository name.

usage:
osc distributions

enablechannels (enablechannel)

Enables channels

Enables existing channel packages in a project. Enabling means adding the needed repositories for building. The command can be used to enable a specific one or all channels of a project.

Examples:
osc enablechannels [PROJECT [CHANNEL_PACKAGE]]

getbinaries

Download binaries to a local directory

This command downloads packages directly from the api server. Thus, it directly accesses the packages that are used for building others even when they are not "published" yet.

do not show downloading progress

help (?, h)

give detailed help on a specific sub-command

usage:
osc help [SUBCOMMAND]

importsrcpkg

Import a new package from a src.rpm

A new package dir will be created inside the project dir (if no project is specified and the current working dir is a project dir the package will be created in this project). If the package does not exist on the server it will be created too otherwise the meta data of the existing package will be updated (<title /> and <description />). The src.rpm will be extracted into the package dir. The files won't be committed unless you explicitly pass the --commit switch.

SRPM is the path of the src.rpm in the local filesystem, or an URL.

Usage:
osc importsrcpkg SRPM

Options:

Usage:
osc info [ARGS...]

init

Initialize a directory as working copy

Initialize an existing directory to be a working copy of an (already existing) buildservice project/package.

(This is the same as checking out a package and then copying sources into the directory. It does NOT create a new package. To create a package, use 'osc meta pkg ... ...')

You wouldn't normally use this command.

To get a working copy of a package (e.g. for building it or working on it, you would normally use the checkout command. Use "osc help checkout" to get help for it.

usage:
osc init PRJ
osc init PRJ PAC

jobhistory (jobhist)

Shows the job history of a project

The arguments REPOSITORY and ARCH can be taken from the first two columns of the 'osc repos' output.

linkpac

"Link" a package to another package

A linked package is a clone of another package, but plus local modifications. It can be cross-project.

The DESTPAC name is optional; the source packages' name will be used if DESTPAC is omitted.

Afterwards, you will want to 'checkout DESTPRJ DESTPAC'.

To add a patch, add the patch as file and add it to the _link file. You can also specify text which will be inserted at the top of the spec file.

See the examples in the _link file.

NOTE: In case you want to fix or update another package, you should use the 'branch'
command. A branch has correct repositories (and a link) setup up by default and
will be cleaned up automatically after it was submitted back.

osc linkpac SOURCEPRJ SOURCEPAC DESTPRJ [DESTPAC] Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-N, --new-package
create a link to a not yet existing package

meta

Show meta information, or edit it

Show or edit build service metadata of type <prj|pkg|prjconf|user|pattern>.

This command displays metadata on buildservice objects like projects, packages, or users. The type of metadata is specified by the word after "meta", like e.g. "meta prj".

prj denotes metadata of a buildservice project. prjconf denotes the (build) configuration of a project. pkg denotes metadata of a buildservice package. user denotes the metadata of a user. pattern denotes installation patterns defined for a project.

To list patterns, use 'osc meta pattern PRJ'. An additional argument will be the pattern file to view or edit.

With the --edit switch, the metadata can be edited. Per default, osc opens the program specified by the environmental variable EDITOR with a temporary file. Alternatively, content to be saved can be supplied via the --file switch. If the argument is '-', input is taken from stdin: osc meta prjconf home:user | sed ... | osc meta prjconf home:user -F -

For meta prj and prjconf updates optional commit messages can be applied with --message.

When trying to edit a non-existing resource, it is created implicitly.

Examples:
osc meta prj PRJ

osc service disabledrun
osc service remoterun [PROJECT PACKAGE]
osc service merge [PROJECT PACKAGE]
osc service wait [PROJECT PACKAGE]

COMMAND can be:
run r run defined services locally, it takes an optional parameter to run only a
specified source service. In case parameters exist for this one in _service file
they are used.
runall ra run all services independend of the used mode
remoterun rr trigger a re-run on the server side
merge commits all server side generated files and drops the _service definition
wait waits until the service finishes and returns with an error if it failed

signkey

Manage Project Signing Key

osc signkey [--create|--delete|--extend] <PROJECT> osc signkey [--notraverse] <PROJECT>

This command is for managing gpg keys. It shows the public key by default. There is no way to download or upload the private part of a key by design.

However you can create a new own key. You may want to consider to sign the public key with your own existing key.

If a project has no key, the key from upper level project will be used (eg. when dropping "KDE:KDE4:Community" key, the one from "KDE:KDE4" will be used).

WARNING: THE OLD KEY WILL NOT BE RESTORABLE WHEN USING DELETE OR CREATE

Usage:
osc signkey [ARGS...]

Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
--sslcert fetch SSL certificate instead of GPG key
--notraverse
