Can you provide a few details about what ports and protocols are required for
communications between the koji-hub and the koji-builder?
For just builders, http/https. If we do a proxy to the existing setup I have,
the ports are going to be oddly numbered though. The builders that are in the
createrepo channel will need to have NFS read-only access to /mnt/koji, so
will need to be located on the same LAN for obvious reasons.
Builders often handle the build notification tasks and send the emails out,
however I don't have any of mine set up to do that at all right now.
And I guess knowing how much disk is needed on the builder would be
The builders I have:
quad 970 powerstation running F11. 25G free disk for building
Dual 970 Apple G5 running F11. ~16G free disk for building
Dual Apple PowerMac G4 running F11. Lots of random disk. This only builds ppc.
I have an iMac I'll probably configure soon too, with similar specs.
The requirements on the builders aren't really that much. They need to be
able to talk to the koji-hub, and use mock to create build roots. They also
need SELinux disabled apparently.
