Linaro Open Build Service

To build packages for generic Linux distributions (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS, OpenSUSE) Linaro is now moving to Open Build Service created by SuSE. Typically it's known as OBS.

Building to overlays from

In case you have used for building Debian or rpm packages, using the build-package and build-rpm jobs, similar OBS jobs have been added. For DEB packages use:

Similar to the existing build-package job. Previously you would use parameters "linaro-overlay" and "stretch". In OBS you would target "linaro-overlay-stretch" to get your packages to

And for RPM packages use:

To observe and follow the build results, you can go to and select your recently submitted package from the "latest updates tag". Alternatively you can construct the URL to your build with

Using OBS directly

If you want PPA style personal or project specific repositories, you will need to create a OBS account.

  1. Select repositories and click on "add repository"

  1. Type linaro-overlay-stretch into project
  2. Select only the architectures you need from Armv7hl, aarch64 and x64_64.

  1. Click on add repository
  2. Observe the builds getting scheduled

use_keyring = 1

osc co home:firstname.lastname

cd home:firstname.lastname
mkdir hello
cd hello
apt-get source -d hello
osc add .
osc ci -m "initial import"

Building software locally with OSC

Sometimes it's more convinient to run builds locally before uploading to obs builders. The osc tool allows with with "osc build" command. In a typical workflow, you have an unpacked source tree. Update debian/changelog if needed and store source package

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -S -d
cd ..

If you changed package version, remove the old .dsc file, and add the new one

osc rm packagename_oldversion.dsc
osc add packagename_newversion.dsc
osc build -j`nproc`

Once you pass a successful build, you commit the changes to push them to server

osc commit

Using repositories created by OBS

The built packages get uploaded to

Install the Linaro repository key from:

wget -O -|sudo apt-key add - 

To add an Debian repository, create /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linaro-obs.list

deb ./
