News in Mock v3.5:
For cross-arch builds (see manual page for the
--forcearchoption), Mock tries to detect if the (potentially missing)
qemu-user-staticpackage is installed. Since Fedora 37, the package got split into a set of packages arch-specific packages (like
qemu-user-static-ppc, etc.). The Mock v3.4 does a better check, and raises more useful error if the package is missing.
In Mock v3.5 we further enhanced the related error message(s).
We also fixed a bug in the detection mechanism — mock no longer fails-hard for a missing architecture (not configured in
config_opts['qemu_user_static_mapping']). Mock in such situation newly just tries its best and continues the build, even though failure is likely.
