@misc: Thanks! It's fixed now.

"vala[c] --version" should not result in "UNKNOWN", as it currently does. This causes many buildscripts to fail as they use this to check for a recent enough version.

A solution is to add "git describe --tag | sed 's/-.*//g' > .tarball-version" before the autogen line.

Please can we make the pkgver use git describe, so that the pkgver is comparable to the real release ver. e.g.:

pkgver() {
cd "${srcdir}/vala"
git describe --always | sed 's|-|.|g'
}

which will result in a version like:

0.20.1.52.g218650f

(52 commits ahead of 0.20.1)

The versioning scheme changed with the new PKGBUILD. Please manually install the latest version.

@yuyichao: Does make read MAKEFLAGS from the environment?

yuyichao commented on 2013-02-05 14:35

Please remove the ${MAKEFLAGS} from the make command line.
You seems to use it a lot in your PKGBUILD's, but it's really pointless and ridiculous.

@buergi: Thanks! I changed it so that vala-git provides vala 0.18.0.

buergi commented on 2012-05-01 16:44

Could we revert the provides line to vala or vala=0.18.0 which would be correct?
If there is an issue with cairo-compmgr which than it should be fixed there not here.
I got both compiled just fine by changing to vala=0.18.0 in vala-git and cairo-compmgr-git and replacing the version in sed commands in cairo-compmgr-git's PKGCONFIG from 16 to 18.
With the current vala-git cairo-compmgr just doesn't compile since it doesn't provide libvala-0.14.so (resp 16 in current versions) even if it pretends to do so.

I built it this morning, it worked just fine except you have to install vala for first time as comment below says.
