Some armv7 builds are failing with the following:

This appears to be a problem with the "armbuild04" node. The same packages build fine with e.g. "armbuild21".

This is an upstream issue, I have reported it in #opensuse-buildservice, and got the suggestion to add "binarytype: deb" to the prjconf as workaround, while this is being looked into. I did add the following, but the result is the same:

%if 0%{?debian_version}
binarytype: deb


#1 Updated by laforge 29 days ago

It has been one week and we're still suffering this issue. Osmocom users on ARM platforms as a result have a broken package feed for one week.

If we look at we see that this affects
  • Debian 10 / armv7l
  • Debian 9 / armv7l
  • Raspbian 10 / armv7l

They all fail due to the last successful osmo-gsm-manuals build is 20210818 while osmocom-nightly is already 20210819.

#2 Updated by osmith 7 days ago

  • Status changed from Stalled to Resolved
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100

We did not receive e-mails with that build failure anymore. However, the armv7l builders were always behind, and could not finish building packages before the next nightly sources were pushed. As discussed, I've disabled armv7l for debian 9 and 10 for the nightly feed.
