Last modified: 2013-10-27 00:50:45 EDT
Description of problem:
The latest iteration of mock from EPEL5 (1.0.36-1.el5) seems to require a newer python. On run, it blows up immediately with a syntax error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mock (any options)
[thoraxe@rpmbuild ~]$ mock
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/mock", line 66, in ?
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/mockbuild/backend.py", line 237
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
mock should run
It's been about a month with no update/needinfo/etc. Anything going on here?

- fix python2.6+ syntax that crept in [BZ# 878989]
- update tests to work properly on i386 host
