Mock » Plugin YumCache

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

This plugin pre-mounts /var/cache/{yum,dnf} directories inside chroot, so the package manager’s metadata don’t have to be re-downloaded between subsequent mock commands (the caches survive mock --clean for example). This plugin is needed because dnf (or yum) --installroot DIRECTORY commands store caches below the DIRECTORY.

It mounts directories /var/cache/mock/<chroot>/{dnf,yum}_cache as /var/cache/{dnf,yum} in chroot.

You can explicitly clean the package manager caches by --scrub=dnf-cache option.


This plugin is enabled by default and has the following values built-in:

config_opts['plugin_conf']['yum_cache_enable'] = True
config_opts['plugin_conf']['yum_cache_opts'] = {}
config_opts['plugin_conf']['yum_cache_opts']['max_age_days'] = 30
config_opts['plugin_conf']['yum_cache_opts']['max_metadata_age_days'] = 30
config_opts['plugin_conf']['yum_cache_opts']['online'] = True
