Mock » Plugin Chroot Scan

A 'simple' chroot build environment manager for building RPMs.

The chroot_scan plugin is used to grab files of interest after a build attempt and copy them to the ‘result directory’ before the chroot is cleaned and data lost.


The chroot_scan plugin is disabled by default. To enable it and to add files to the detection logic, add this code to configure file:

config_opts['plugin_conf']['chroot_scan_enable'] = True
config_opts['plugin_conf']['chroot_scan_opts']['regexes'] = [
config_opts['plugin_conf']['chroot_scan_opts']['only_failed'] = True
config_opts['plugin_conf']['chroot_scan_opts']['write_tar'] = False

The above logic turns on the chroot_scan plugin and adds corefiles and log files to the scan plugin. When the ‘postbuild’ hook is run by mock, the chroot_scan will look through the chroot for files that match the regular expressions in it’s list and any matching file will be copied to the mock result directory for the config file. Again if you want this to be enabled across all configs, edit the /etc/mock/site-defaults.cfg file.

When only_failed is set to False, then those files are always copied. When it is set to True (default when plugin enabled), then those files are only copied when build failed.

When write_tar is set to True, then instead of chroot_scan directory, chroot_scan.tar.gz is created with the directory archive.

The only_failed option is available since v1.2.8, write_tar since v5.5.
