The following metadata was found in MoinMoin that could not be converted to a useful value in MediaWiki:

  •  : semodule -i mock.pp}}}

/usr/sbin/mock-helper yum --installroot /var/lib/mock/<config-name>/root install <your packages>

There's no such mock-helper, shouldn't it be /usr/sbin/mach-helper ?

obsolete section on SELinux?

Is the section:

now obsolete? Somebody said it was on #fedora-devel because this functionality is now integrated into mock out of the box. If so, it should probably be removed/modified. --Alexlan 20:59, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

On Fedora 13 at least the SELinux section still applies. After compiling the local policy it must indeed be loaded with sudo /usr/sbin/semodule -i /root/selinux.local/mock.pp before running the restorecon command. --M8ram 19:36, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Building packages that depend on packages not in a repository

I have never used the --copyin method. After installing the required dependencies I just did a

mock -r MOCK_CONFIG --no-clean /path/to/SRPM

and it's always worked.
