Talk:Using Mock to test package builds
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.

On RHEL 7 the SELinux section is still mostly correct but insufficient.
1. /usr/bin/mock is now linked to consolehelper, thus you need to allow some from consolehelp
2. After following the instruction, you still need to do much more for staff_selinux --dchen 1:40, 21 Apr 2016 (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.
Setting up local mirror
If you want to set up a local mirror, refer Docs/Drafts/MockSetupUsingLocalMirror
Well, how do I know if I want to set up a local mirror? A local mirror of what? A little basic context would help here.
