Building MeeGo with OBS

Author: Rudolf Streif, The Linux Foundation

Building a Linux distribution from scratch can be a daunting task. To facilitate the process the MeeGo project leverages the strengths of the Open Build Service (OBS) for distribution and application development. In this whitepaper, we will provide a brief introduction to the MeeGo build infrastructure and how it is utilized to support the MeeGo development process. Then we demonstrate the use of the OBS WebUI and the command-line client osc with step-by-step instructions.
