openSUSE:Build Service Installation CentOS

tagline: From openSUSE

CentOS

Introduction

We are currently trying to install the Build Service on CentOS 4.2 using the Fedora Core 6 RPMs. This document does briefly describe how to setup an openSUSE Build Service (OBS) with the rpm packages from the openSUSE project. By default, all service run on the same system, but they can get distributed to increase reliability and do load balancing.

Building OBS RPMs

At the time of writing, the build of the obs-server package fails for the Fedora Core 6 platform. If you want to build the obs-server RPMs yourself, you download all the code of the openSUSE:tools project to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES. Place your obs-server.spec file in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS.

The commonly used macros %insserv_prereq and %fillup_prereq are not supported on the FC6 platform, so I just comment out these lines.

Use the following spec file.

Build your RPMs with:

rpmbuild -ba /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/obs-server.spec

Note: I also made a few other changes to the spec file. See below for more information!

Install: backend

The backend hosts all sources, build packages and calculates the jobs. You need to install the "obs-server" package for this. Also add the user obsrun because it is needed to install the obs-server package

# useradd obsrun
# rpm -ivh obs-server-0.1-17.1.i386.rpm

Note: obs-server-0.1-17.1.i386.rpm has following dependencies

  • perl-Socket-MsgHdr => downloaded from the official CentosDistro
  • perl => downloaded from the official CentosDistro
  • perl-Compress-Zlib => downloaded from the official CentosDistro
  • perl-XML-Parser => downloaded from the official CentosDistro
    • perl-libwww-perl => downloaded from the official CentosDistro
    • perl-HTML-Parser => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
    • perl-URI => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
    • perl-HTML-Tagset => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
  • perl-Compress-Zlib => downloaded from Centos Extra Packages

Configure: backend

WARNING: The following starts services which are accessable from the outside. Do not do this on a system connected to an untrusted network or be sure to block the ports via a firewall.

 # rcobsrepserver start
 # rcobssrcserver start
 # rcobsscheduler start

The data get hosted inside of /srv/obs directory by default.

The problem is that these scripts use /etc/rc.status, which is typical openSUSE and not on a CentOS system. So I had to rewrite the scripts

Install: worker

The workers ask the backend for open build jobs and do the build. You need to install the "obs-worker" package for this.

# rpm -ivh obs-worker-0.1-17.1.i386.rpm

Note: obs-worker-0.1-17.1.i386.rpm has following dependencies

  • curl => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
    • libidn => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
  • perl-Compress-Zlib => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
  • perl-XML-Parser => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
    • perl-libwww-perl => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
    • perl-URI => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
  • perl-TimeDate => downloaded from http://rpmforge.net/user/packages/perl-TimeDate/
    • utempter => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
  • screen => downloaded from the official CentOSDistro
    • perl-TimeDate


Configure: worker

A worker can be started on the localhost by calling

 # rcobsworker start

Install: frontend

You need to install the "obs-api" package for this and a mysql server on this or a remote host.

# rpm -ivh obs-api-0.1-17.1.i386

Note: obs-api-0.1-17.1.i386 has following dependencies

  • ruby-1.8.5-1.el4.centos

=> downloaded from the official CentOSDistro

  • lighttpd

=> this was quit a pain in the ass. We downloaded the lighttpd from source: lighttpd-1.4.13.tar.gz and created an rpm using this script => also, make sure you have the pcre and pcre-devel package on the machine where you build lighttpd! Otherwise, you'll not be able to start your lighttpd!

#!/bin/bash

rm -rf build
mkdir -p build/RPMS build/SRPMS build/SOURCES build/BUILD build/tmp build/SPECS

rpmbuild -ta lighttpd-1.4.13.tar.gz --buildroot=`pwd`/build/tmp --define "_topdir `pwd`/build" --with lua

You should have these files:

  • rubygem-mysql

  • rubygem-rails

  • rubygem-rake

=> gem 2 rpm using a script

Now, you see lighttpd_mod_magnet is missing as a dependency. We didn't have this RPM and we didn't want to install it as the mod_magnet.c and mod_magnet.so were in our source code. So we had to rebuild the obs-server package using this spec file. We wiped out the mod_magnet dependency. We also had to change some of the gem packages' names. (See top of the page for spec file.)

Setup & configure: MySQL database

  • start your MySQL database
/etc/init.d/mysql start
  • create the root account
/usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'your-password'
  • configure your used mysql user in under the "development:" section.
/srv/www/obs/frontend/config/database.yml
/srv/www/obs/webclient/config/database.yml
  • create the database
mysql -u root -p
mysql> create database frontend_development;
mysql> quit
  • move to the frontend folder
cd /srv/www/obs/frontend/
  • fill in the database
rake migrate

Setup & configure: frontend and webclient

Afterwards the configuration of the frontend (and webclient) rails interface is needed. A configuration for accessing via http://127.0.42.1 and http://127.0.42.2 gets automatically installed into /etc/lighttpd/vhosts.d/obs.conf

We are using a different lighttpd. Our config files look like this:

  • /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf

#### external configuration files

## load enabled configuration files,
## read /etc/lighttpd/conf-available/README first

## files needed for OBS
setenv.add-environment     = ("LUA_INIT" => "@/usr/share/lua/5.1/compat-5.1.lua")
var.conf_dir = "/etc/lighttpd"
var.log_root = "/srv/obs/log"
include "vhosts.d/obs.conf"
Change /srv/www/obs/webclient/config/environments/production_slave.rb

If you changed the hostnames/ips away from 10.0.42.x, you need to configure also /srv/www/obs/webclient/config/environments/production_slave.rb (2 entries).

Restart lighttpd

Afterwards you can start the OBS web frontends via

   rclighttpd start  # use "insserv lighttpd" for permanent start

If lighttpd does not start you need to enable/disable IPv6

Setup: initial distributions

( I've never reached to this part :p )

Access

By default you can access the api via using any browser with the URL

http://127.0.42.2

The web interface is accessable via

http://127.0.42.1

The default user is "Admin" with the password "opensuse".

FIXES

Not using 127.0.42.2 for frontend

If you use, like me, another ip for your frontend, your BS will not run correctly. Therefore, go to: /srv/www/obs/webclient/config/environments/development.rb and change the FRONTEND_HOST to your other IP

This document has been created by Jochen Hebbrecht. I made this tutorial because I'm doing a project for school (stage) and we are planning to use the openSUSE buildtool. Don't blame me for the mistakes I made, but try to correct them. I know this tutorial is not quiet complete, I tried to note everything I did, but as you know, nobody does that perfectly.

Packages

I (martin-juhl) have implemented these instructions (along with some of my own) into a repository.. Everything should be working See here for repository and here for source.. Installation Instructions:

First of all, remember to setup either DNS or /etc/hosts to match hostname of the server...

RHEL6:

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/RHEL-CBS.repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/martin-juhl:/branches:/openSUSE:/Tools/RHEL_6/home:martin-juhl:branches:openSUSE:Tools.repo

or

CentOS6:

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-CBS.repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/martin-juhl:/branches:/openSUSE:/Tools/CentOS_6/home:martin-juhl:branches:openSUSE:Tools.repo

yum install obs-web-httpd obs-server obs-worker obs-api mysql-server

chkconfig iptables off chkconfig obsworker on chkconfig mysqld on service mysqld start

Edit: /etc/sysconfig/obs-server

Set: OBS_API_AUTOSETUP=”no” to: OBS_API_AUTOSETUP=”yes”

and: OBS_VM_TYPE=”auto” to: OBS_VM_TYPE=”none”

/etc/init.d/obsapisetup start

mv /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf.bak

chkconfig httpd on chkconfig obssignd on

reboot

Now go the servers IP-adresse/Hostname for the web-interface…

Login: Admin

Pass: opensuse
