This test is designed to ensure that a proposed package update does not introduce any dependency problems into the targetted repository (
The test environment consists of any machine with depcheck script downloaded. When downloading packages from the fedora build system (koji), you will need to install the
package by typing:
yum install koji
How to test
- Download all builds (i.e. all RPMs from a build for every build) currently present in a Koji tag you want to test. For example to list all builds currently proposed to stable Fedora 13 updates, you can run:
koji list-tagged dist-f14-updates-pending
You can download them all e.g. like this:
koji list-tagged dist-f14-updates-pending --quiet | cut -f1 -d ' ' | while read BUILD; do koji download-build $BUILD; done
depcheckscript with the desired target repository (notice different syntax) and all the downloaded RPMs as arguments:
depcheck f14-updates *.rpm
depcheckoutput. Builds listed as ACCEPTED do not break dependencies. However, builds listed as REJECTED break them.
- Repeat this approach for all supported architectures - i686 and x86_64. (I.e. follow this test case on both 32-bit and 64-bit Fedora).
- All updates are listed as ACCEPTED. In other words, none of the proposed updates are listed as REJECTED.
