Well, thanks!
I'm afraid it will. If anyone know how to properly handle this I'm all ear.

OK thank you for clarifying what happened to me. It was a freak glitch. Will it happen whenever vala version number bumps?

I would still like the PKGBUILD to check deps before download/build steps. I'm not sure it's possible but it would help.

Thank you so much, you make Arch a happy place for us.

The PKGBUILD does work out of the box. When you tested vala had just been updated in Arch repos but the dependency check not changed in upstream source files. That is why it failed.

What I meant by more strict was putting something like "vala=0.18" but it would mean that whenever vala is updated in the repo you would not be able to install the update without uninstalling cairo-compmgr-git.

People using vala-git have to edit the PKGBUILD and only them.

@cgirard: I meant to communicate something else and think you even got strictness backwards, let me explain.

The PKGBUILD doesn't work out of the box, period, regardless of vala version, stock or -git. It should work with one or the other (or both). Any PKGBUILD should work without edits. This one needs edits no matter which vala is installed. So it fails to track the Arch ecosystem in any way at all.

Pick stock or -git vala and run with it, or allow any version of vala. If anything, I propose less strictness, not more. Thanks again!

@DaveCode: I could make the vala dependency more strict but it would annoy the user at each vala update. Not sure it is really better...

Thank you for maintaining the package. Here is my report. It fails with stock Arch vala 0.18.0-1, for maybe the same reasons as vala-git, I don't know. It builds against stock Arch vala 0.18.0-1 by changing the 0.20's to 0.18's in the commented-out sed commands, and uncommenting same. So whether one uses stock vala or vala-git one needs to edit this PKGBUILD.

Can the PKGBUILD check all deps first, avoiding so many download/build steps before bailing on a missing dep?

Thank you for your efforts in the AUR.

@cgirard: building with vala-git. thx for adding the commented section.

cgirard commented on 2012-10-29 10:53

Switched to a different git repo (more up-to-date). Please remove your src dir before rebuilding (or it won't switch remote git).

@hplgonzo: I've added a commented section that should do what you have asked (not tested).

not building with vala-git ( anymore since last update.
missing possibility to change version in the PKGCONFIG's sed commands from 16 to 20.
