Hits portage a [edit]month[/edit] later? You mean as non-'~'? Lame. I really want to have the ebuild ASAP.

If you want to use masked packages go ahead. But I prefer to use stable releases, and I'de be prepared to wait for it, so long as I can expect it to work.

With 2.6 there was more significant improvement.

Seems as if most changes are under the hood again with 2.10.

[edit]
I am happy about the release anyway. Just had hopes for more than this.

PostPosted: Wed Mar 09, 2005 12:37 pm    Post subject: ebuilds out, but masked Reply with quote

Hi all,

the ebuilds are out and masked.

There's an error in "libglade-2.5.0.ebuild". A required patch has the wrong version number. Either the patch in gnome-base/libglade/files is wrong, or it's got the wrong version in the ebuild.

Regardless I changed the following in the ebuild:
Code:


epatch ${FILESDIR}/Makefile.in.am-2.4.1-xmlcatalog.patch


to
Code:

epatch ${FILESDIR}/Makefile.in.am-2.4.2-xmlcatalog.patch


..and it compiles OK.

Obviously whether this works or not is another matter!! Fingers crossed.

Normally I'd wait at least a few days after the ebuilds come out, but I'm bored, as at home sick..... So here goes.......!

Cheers
Ferg

PS i suppose I should look into submitting this as an ebuild bug.

You know it just occurred to me that a reason for masking ebuilds as well as for testing purposes, is when all the dependencies are not met.

So I'm expecting that quite a few packages are not quite ready.

Doh! Serves me right for doing things when I don't feel quite well.

Cheers

Another package that fails to build: libgnomeprint....
While emerging:

Code:
checking for libgnomecups-1.0 >= 0.2.0... Requested 'libgnomecups-1.0 >= 0.2.0' but version of libgnomecups is 0.1.14

configure: error: Library requirements (libgnomecups-1.0 >= 0.2.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.


Anyone an idea how to fix this one ?

I got the same libgnomeprint problem. Seems they haven't included a new ebuild for that dependancy.

Yeah it's exactly what I meant earlier. I know with previous major Gnome releases they kept it all masked until all ebuilds were in there. I , stupidly, jumped the gun!!! :-)

Incidentally there is a much newer ebuild for libgnomecups, 0.1.8, although not recent enough to work for this.

Looks like waiting........!

This samba shares manager looks kick ass! Would be cool if some of you who test 2.10 leaves a statement about it :)

Just copying libgnomecups-0.1.14.ebuild to my overlay and rename it to libgnomecups-0.2.0.ebuild, seems to work allright.

I just unmasked and emerged evolution-2.2
It emrges fine and seems to work well with my gnome-2.8, so if anyone needs to try the new version it's possible without upgrading the whole gnome.

well apart from the two minor ebuild issues mentioned above, and the fact that I could not get bug-buddy emerged (I had to manually upgrade a few packages, rather than simply emerge -u world), it all seems fine.

The menus have been reorganised. Call me stupid, but it took me a while to find preferences...... and what on earth is Edutainment? :-)

Otherwise a fairly painless upgrade. Nautilus "seems" to be faster, especially at previewing. Although this is a purely subjective opinion and I also switched to Gamin recently, so the speed increase could be due to this.

It's overwritten my mouse cursors settings, and left the default X one in there. I'll have to remember what setting I need to add in the gconf registry.

Otherwise cool! Well done Gnome ebuild maintainers!

It takes a few weeks to get to just "~". Foser, the ranking Gentoo GNOME developer, waits until bug reports and brown bag/followup patches from upstream both dry up.

I appreciate it, because GNOME is production-ware for me.

It's declared "stable" when the condition above persists for another few weeks.

I've been pretty following a lot of this on planet over the past while. While this release is nice i'm more looking forward to 2.12. There is great focus on memory reduction and I'm pretty sure that tools like gstreamer and dbus etc. will be more mature and widely used. Same deal goes for cairo's use in gtk and the deprecation of libgnomecanvas and others.

I believe they've removed bonobo layout stuff from from nautilus to speed it up, though I'm not totally sure.

Any chance there's a "power user" option yet? I miss the pre-simplified Gnome. I have no problem with the simplification, just the elimination of configurability.

Yeah, the memory reduction stuff seems pretty cool (I was thinking about chasing after one of those bounties ;-)). The Gstreamer and D-BUS intergration should be cool and hopefully the gstreamer docs get a little better (I know what you're going to say, but I don't have the time to do it), cause I tried messing around with gstreamer and the docs were horrible. Cairo is also going to be effing sweet. You should check out the development versions of Enlightment too, to see what is possible for a 3D backend toolkit :-D

I don't think they are going to deprecate anything until they fork the 3.x branch. The point being they have to maintain ABI/API stability across all 2.x releases.
