openSUSE Build Service is a service provided by the openSUSE Project to allow people to create and publish packages of free and open source software as RPM repositories using RPM MetaData (rpm-md) format.

Getting set up with OBS

Note that the below steps are optional, and only necessary if you want to use the CLI tools. You can fully operate from the web interface at https://build.opensuse.org.

As the tools are not provided in Mageia's repositories, please forward issues to the openSUSE Build Service team.

First, add the "openSUSE:Tools" repository for Mageia 6 (substitute "6" for "Cauldron" if you're running Cauldron):
# dnf config-manager --add-repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/openSUSE:Tools/Mageia_6/openSUSE:Tools.repo

Then install osc package:
# dnf install osc

Then follow the tutorial from openSUSE on getting started.

Using a package you've built from OBS

First, add the the repository for Mageia 6 for your package (substitute "Cauldron" for "6" if you're running Cauldron):
# dnf config-manager --add-repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/<repository_name>/Mageia_6/<repository_name>.repo

Then install the package:
# dnf install <package>
