h1. _Nightly_ Builds

sysmocom has setup nightly Debian/Ubuntu source package builds for the current master version of the Osmocom GSM related software.

*NOTE: USE NIGHTLY BUILDS ONLY FOR DEVELOPMENT/TESTING*. The [[Latest_Builds]] are a more stable alternative.

Starting from March 18, 2016, there are daily builds for

* Debian 8 (i586, amd64)
* Debian 9 (i586, amd64, armv7l, aarch64)
* xUbuntu 16.04 (i586, amd64)
* xUbuntu 17.10 (i586, amd64)
* xUbuntu 18.04 (i586, amd64)

The Osmocom jenkins will build source packages once a day and upload them to the Open(SUSE) Build Service (OBS).

The OBS page is at

A nice status overview on the builds is available at

h2. How to use the _osmocom:nightly_ builds

The download repositories are at:


Adding the repository to your Debian 8 system:
sudo su
sha256sum Release.key
=> cbb03d32d144d45ba654ff9ed16361218d224a1bdffbdf2832c48e796b955aa8
apt-key add Release.key
rm Release.key
echo "deb ./" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/osmocom-nightly.list
apt-get update

h2. How are those builds created?

See for corresponding build job.

The script at is used to
* obtain a current clone of the respective git repository
* check out the current master in that repository
* build debian source packages
* upload them to the OBS *network:osmocom:nightlyt* sub-project.

It's possible to reproduce the nightly builds locally using
osc co
osc build

To test local changes with one can create local packages the same way jenkins job above does:
gbp buildpackage -S -uc -us --git-ignore-new --git-export-dir=/tmp
and than repeat build steps outlined above for local build.
