Installers beware! This package is a fiasco and the upstream Git repository basically has bunch of binary blobs in it that do strange things. I'm working on cleaning up the packaging some but the upstream behavior is egregious. Wash your /opt/depot_tools directory out with soap and bleach when done.

depot_tools is installed in /opt/depot_tools/. This directory is not in $PATH by default, so make sure to export PATH=/opt/depot_tools:$PATH before using it. Also, this directory has root permissions, so either use it as root, or if you want to use it as your currect user:

# groupadd depot_tools
# gpasswd -a $(whoami) depot_tools
# setfacl -m g:depot_tools:rwX /opt/depot_tools/

Then re-login as your current user or log your terminal in to the newly created group:

$ newgrp depot_tools

@japhir You have a source clone from before some packaging changes. Clear your source directory and try again.

japhir commented on 2021-11-25 11:15 (UTC)

Apparently it checks whether it has the "correct" upstream url now...

The architecture on this should not be 'any', there are platform specific binaries being distributed in this package.

@caleb I don't see it as a conflict because depot-tools-git is not installed in $PATH, but rather in /opt/depot_tools/.

So no files would overwrite each other when both depot-tools-git and git-extras are installed.

Am I wrong?

alerque commented on 2020-10-02 11:05 (UTC)

This needs to mark a conflits=('git-extras') which also has an implementation of git-rename-branch.

Also it seems that many of the fixes/hacks are not needed:

  • cit, clang-format, clang_format_merge_driver, compile_single_file, download_from_google_storage, gn can all be run with python3
  • fetch, gclient and roll-dep even depend on python3 (through vpython3) now
  • git-runhooks calls gclient so it runs with python3
  • luci-auth does not exec python anymore
  • gclient.py does not import colorama anymore, instead there is a setup_color.py

hexchain commented on 2020-08-17 20:15 (UTC)

Is it possible to make vpython3 use system python3 too?

Doesn't seem to fully work when fetching WebRTC sources...

$ fetch --nohooks webrtc
mktemp: failed to create file via template ‘/opt/depot_tools/.cipd_client.XXXXXXX’: Permission denied
curl: (23) Failed writing body (0 != 1387)
/opt/depot_tools/bootstrap_python3: line 32: bootstrap-3.8.0.chromium.8_bin/python3/bin/python3: No such file or directory

/opt/depot_tools/vpython3: line 52: /opt/depot_tools/.cipd_bin/vpython3: No such file or directory

The /opt/depot_tools/ directory is owned by root. Maybe certain directories need updated permissions through PKGBUILD?
