A scratch build is a special type of build that is manually created by a developer. It is built in the online build service and serves multiple purposes:
In order to upload scratch builds it is required to have an account on the Pakfire Build Service that is enabled to upload scratch builds. Unfortunately, we cannot open this up for everyone because we fear attacks on the build infrastructure.
You'll need to install the
pakfire-client package (on IPFire) and set it up by editing the configuration file
/etc/pakfire/client.conf and provide your credentials.
The command line to upload a build is basically the same to when building a package locally, but instead of
pakfire-builder, you type
pakfire-client build beep/beep.nm
To build the package only for a particular architecture, you can provide this as well:
pakfire-client build beep/beep.nm -a i686
You will find the build on the Pakfire Build Service and you will be notified by email when it has been finished or failed.
