Using mock to build RHEL packages (take 2)

19 October 2006

It turns out that some kind soul added buildsys-build and buildsys-macros packages to the Fedora buildgroups repository. That considerably simplifies setting up a mock buildroot for RHEL, much simpler than my previous entry. All you need to do now to create a mock buildroot for, say, RHEL4 is:

  • Create a local yum repository with the RHEL4 rpms (as described previously)
  • Download the simplified [mock config file]( and point the `[base]` repository at your local yum mirror.
