Thanks mnovick. I'll flag the package out-of-date.

Please arevert-warn-glib-compile-schemas.patch from the package in [core]. This avoids lots of useless warnings when installing packages that depend on glib2-git.

Or you could just rebuild...? (I get version automatically when I run makepkg)

@jazznaz, it's the git version. It should be buggy ;)

It should be fixed now. Please test and report.

Completely breaks Gnome 3 on my system with the error: " warning: undefined reference to <schema id=''/> "

Problem only fixed by reverting back to glib2.

Done. Thx.

Hi, consider adding 'git' to makedepends.

kfgz commented on 2011-03-17 20:31

Your PKGBUILD is not entirely correct: you need double quotes around your 'provides' string, otherwise ${_realver} will be included literally instead of being resolved. Moreover, in some places your braces were wrong: ${_gitname-build} will resolve to "glib", not to "glib-build"; use ${_gitname}-build instead. And why do you need that `for` loop in your package function? Wouldn't a simple chmod -x path/* suffice?
