Thanks for the summary of your experience. In my case I created a build
environment much as you laid out but I am still doing everything as
rpmbuild --rebuild rather than a Mock environment. I ended up with 36
packages not building and did have to import a couple of fedora packages
to get it to that number. In comparing my list to yours, you have
solutions to 11 of those on my list. I will be attempting those when I
have the time. My question is this. Are these the only packages you
were unable to rebuild, or do you still have some left to resolve? I
noticed a few of mine failed with unpackaged elements so I assume those
may be resolved with a change in build options. I used to believe that
if I just found the right environment all of RedHat's sources would
rebuild. I now have found out that, this belief was very naive.
everything else build, except that i've to find the reason why yum
wouldn't like to install 32 bit packages into a 64bit system in mock
(but this is bot an rh problem).
