Hi

I am trying to build in mock a new package I've created. Build succeeds for x86_64 but fails for i386, despite there is almost no config difference. The logs of the failed builds ends always with:


Try wiping out your root cache in /var/lib/mock/root-cache and starting over.
Tried that before posting, several times. Reinstalled mock, updated to latest version available in updates (the machine is running F7/x86_64 with all available updates installed, reverted my config to the default one, used standard mirrors instead of a specific baseurl, nothing works. I am facing the same problem each time: mock build for devel/i386 and F-7/i386 fail. Anything else I've tried (all x86_64 builds, FC6/i386) works.

Just started getting this myself. It was a self-inflicted problem. I originally had the following in /etc/mock/defaults.cfg:

config_opts['macros'] = """
%%_topdir	%s/build
%%_rpmfilename	%%%%{NAME}-%%%%{VERSION}-%%%%{RELEASE}.%%%%{ARCH}.rpm
%%packager	Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org>
%%vendor	city-fan.org repo http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/
""" % config_opts['chroothome']

I recently changed this to:

config_opts['macros'] = config_opts['macros'] + """
%%packager	Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org>
%%vendor	city-fan.org repo http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/
"""

Which should of course have been:

config_opts['macros'] = config_opts['macros'] + """
%packager	Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org>
%vendor		city-fan.org repo http://www.city-fan.org/ftp/contrib/
"""

(no need to escape % characters any more)

This only manifested itself as a problem that broke builds when a combination of two things happened:

1. My autocache file for devel was regenerated, resulting in broken /var/lib/mock/fedora-devel*/root/builddir/.rpmmacros files with too many % characters, and 2. A version of rpmbuild appeared in devel that refused to build packages in the presence of the broken rpmmacros file.

Builds for older releases still worked but didn't pick up the packager and vendor tags due to the macro file error.

Paul.
