Thread: does chromium-desktop-* package belong to openSuse or Google? want to edit software description

    I just tried that, like this (the latest building had succeeded), hoping that osc would pick up the files at openSuse's servers without my downloading them to my laptop:

    osc ci --noservice http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...885.1.i586.rpm http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...-885.1.src.rpm http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...5.1.x86_64.rpm

    What came back, right away, was this:

    Error: "/root/http:/download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/NickLevinson/openSUSE_13.2/i586" is not an osc package working copy.

    In other words, I supplied 3 URLs but osc took only the first URL, truncated it, changed a double-slash into a single slash after the http protocol, looked for it in my local root directory and not in a remote server, and didn't find it.

    I changed ci to commit but that got the same result. I also tried the Web interface again and got the 404 again.

    I don't see an instruction for osc on how to get it to read a remote server and commit from there and Googling didn't show me anything.

    Is there something else I can try before I go home?

    Hi
    Your doing it all wrong..... osc builds and uploads the files (spec file changes source etc), it doesn't 'upload' binaries, you can download bianaries if required, but you build it locally, fix and upload, then submit.

    Some people doubtless do it locally, but openSuse implies it's not necessary ("[s]ometimes, it can be faster to build your package on your local machine instead of waiting for the results from the Build Service" (https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Bui...ackage_locally)). They're treating both building locally and building on their machines as acceptable ways of working and their website has much other content to that effect.

    If, in my case, I have to build locally, then we're talking about approximately 21-27 hours during most of which I have to stand in one place and mostly without interruption, and that assumes that building on my laptop is not much slower than doing so in 3+ hours on their servers and it also assumes that I have or can get (for free) the software for compiling/interpreting/translating. I hope the OBS instructions for doing it through their servers (https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Bui...orial#Workflow) are not that far wrong or I won't be able to do this. I've already spent some 12-18 hours trying to change three short texts without the downloading/uploading.

    I emailed the build service asking about the 404/403 errors that are blocking me. There has to be some workable solution.

    Progress in the Web interface: The 404 error stopped appearing and I got a proper dialog. The request was submitted and is pending as #407543.

    Solved, apparently.

    The Web interface works; the link that was giving me a 404/403 error was doing that because I was trying to open it in a new tab, whereas it links to a dialog, not a URL; it probably should be a button or have some other code behind it, and not behaving as normally expected is a user intervface problem, but at least it works somehow. So, osc and a long download/upload round trip are not needed.

    My edits to *.gnome and *.kde were accepted and the one for *.gnome has appeared in a recent openSuse update. I won't wait for the *.kde update to appear to assume that everything on point is now working as intended.
