[csw-buildfarm] FW: just about...

Hello Dago,

I'm new to the buildfarm community and was asked to send a request here about verifying whether certain packages should be installed on login.

I was using skayser's mgar instructions and came across this output:

sjamal at login [login]:~ > echo $PATH
sjamal at login [login]:~ > mgar init ~/opencsw/ ERROR: Prerequisite command "mknmz" not found in your $PATH. Please make sure that these required packages are installed:

  findutils ggrep gmake namazu subversion

sjamal at login [login]:~ >

Any help in setting up or feedback will be much appreciated!

Thank you,

Actually, the mknmz isn't setup on login.  Try running this on
current9x instead.  Login is one box that I don't have admin rights on
so I can't fix it immediately, but if you mail
buildfarm at lists.opencsw.org with the request, Dago will either add it
or indicate that it's not meant to be there.
