@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 (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.

I received an email that Diego posted a comment that said "broken". Could you explain how it's broken (and provide build logs, etc)?

By the way, the out-of-date button is only for notifying maintainers that there's a new upstream button. Please do not click it when the build fails. I respond to all comments.

@donniezazen: Just install the regular vala. It's only needed the first time you install vala-git :)

./ line 10: valac: command not found

I'm taking over this package since no one wants to maintain it anymore. I've fixed the provides line so that it provides the latest version of vala in the extra repository :)
