Default hosts for rawhide build chroots - different rpm versions?

Hi,

AFAIK the build hosts are RHEL5 (or maybe F10 by now?). At any rate
the rpm used in rawhide is quite different than the ones from the
hosts, how has this been solved in the build hosts? Has the hosting OS
upgraded its rpm to be compatible to all hosted chroots? Or is the rpm
within the chroot used?

I'm asking in a double context: First I'd like to understand if smart
can properly handle chroots of rawhide/F11 on F10/RHEL5 hosts. Anders
Björklund (in the Cc, please keep him there on replies) has put a
great deal of effort to have smart working on F10 and F11, and a smart
version for managing F11 and later chroots on F10 or earlier would be
great.

And second I'd like to know how to setup a build environment for F11
for getting some ATrpms packages out.

Thanks!

we are running a version of rpm 4.6.0 on rhel5. This is only so mock can
populate chroots with rpms with stronger hashes rhel5's rpm doesnt support.
All srpm creation now takes place in chroots so features of the target rpm are
always available.

rpm in F-10 updates is compatible with the new rpm features. but rpm from F-9
and RHEL4 and 5 can not handle the new rpm at all. you cannot make chroots on
them with rawhide rpms.


you could use koji on F-10/rawhide or F-9/RHEL5 by replacing the hosts rpm to
build your packages.
