@pnorcks: should be OK now, thanks for the report

When trying to use mock 1.4.7-1, I run into an exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/mock", line 79, in <module>
from mockbuild import util
File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/mockbuild/", line 41, in <module>

@Duologic: I'm not sure what you mean by "collaborate". Can you clarify?

I really prefer to run mock with 'sudo', both for reason I mentioned in my previous comment, and also because it makes clear that I'm running the program as root. Running mock with 'usermode' blurs that distinction...

Duologic commented on 2016-03-13 14:25

Can you collaborate on getting it running in 'usermode'?

pnorcks commented on 2015-06-04 22:46

I adopted the package.

Note that I removed the 'usermode' dependency from this package, since I prefer running mock with 'sudo', and it simplifies packaging.

@roheim: Thanks!

I'm now seeing an install failure. Error output is below.

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)

@pnorcks: done.

Also upgraded to newest version.

I recommend passing '--sysconfdir=/etc' to ./configure so that the mock's many configuration files will live under /etc/ instead of /usr/etc.

This package is currently broken, but will be fixed.

I suggest to use mock-git which I just uploaded and let this package rest in peace.
