pbuilder-dist overwrite OTHERMIRROR set in ~/.pbuilderrc

Asked by Aurélien Leblond on 2012-05-10


I was going to open a bug, but I just want to be sure that I'm not doing anything stupid first :)

My ~/.pbuilderrc looks like this:
     OTHERMIRROR="deb file:///home/blablack/pbuilder/precise_result ./"

In Oneiric, this exact configuration was working ok (I have the hook file as well).

Since Precise, it doesn't seem to take the OtherMirror into consideration.

I ran pbuilder-dist with --debug-echo and it looks like this:
['sudo', 'HOME=/home/blablack', 'ARCHITECTURE=amd64', 'DISTRIBUTION=precise', 'ARCH=amd64', 'DIST=precise', 'DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=', 'pbuilder', '--build', '--distribution', 'precise', '--buildresult', '/home/blablack/pbuilder/precise_result/', '--basetgz', '/home/blablack/pbuilder/precise-base.tgz', '--logfile', '/home/blablack/pbuilder/precise_result/last_operation.log', '--mirror', 'http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu', '--othermirror', 'deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-security main restricted universe multiverse|deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-updates main restricted universe multiverse|deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu precise-proposed main restricted universe multiverse', '--components', 'main restricted universe multiverse', 'suil_0.6.1~svn4338~ppa1.dsc']

Let me know if there is any other information I could provide that would be valuable,

I've got exactly the same problem (when you specify the othermirror again as command line option it won't be ignored, but that still doesn't change problem with the overwritten pbuilderrc option).
Have you already found a solution or opened a bug?

Aurélien Leblond (blablack) said : #2

No I didn't found a solution, nor opened a bug yet.

But if you experience the same issue, I'll open one straight away (I wanted to confirm first the issue wasn't just with me).

Can you help with this problem?
