Obs-build package for RockyLinux_8

Hi, I installed the osc package for RockyLinux_8 from https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Tools/RockyLinux_8/noarch/ but there does not appear to be an obs-build package there, to be able to run “osc build”. I use this package on CentOS_7 and it looks like there is one for RockyLinux_9. Is there a reason why it is unavailable for RockyLinux_8? Is there a workaround?


@arghness it’s just osc that’s needed.

If I run “osc build” (to test a build locally before committing to OBS), I get the message:

Error: build (‘/usr/bin/build’) command not found
Install the build package from http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:/Tools/

This was the same on CentOS 7, before I installed the obs-build package.

Package fails to build due to missing prerequisites.

bor@bor-Latitude-E5450:~$ osc buildinfo openSUSE:Tools build RockyLinux_8 x86_64
<buildinfo project="openSUSE:Tools" repository="RockyLinux_8" package="build" downloadurl="https://download.opensuse.org/repositories">
  <error>unresolvable: nothing provides perl(Date::Parse)</error>

You can build it locally or branch and add additional repository/import required package into your project.

@arghness Hi, does RockyLinux have command-not-found, have you run cnf build?
