[solved] Circular dependency of Cinnamon-git packages. How to

Hello,

I try to make Cinnamon-git working on my box.
One of the things Cinnamon-git needs is cinnamon-settings.
So I downloaded this pkgbuild and try to make a package with it by unpacking and makepkg -sic.
But then I get a message that Cinnamon-setttings needs Cinnamon to build.

Is there a easy way to make this work ?

Re: [solved] Circular dependency of Cinnamon-git packages. How to

I see only https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/cinn … aemon-git/ and it doesn't need cinnamon.
I run into

==> Starting build()...
which: no gnome-autogen.sh in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/bin/core_perl)
You need to install gnome-common from GNOME Subversion (or from
your distribution's package manager).
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
    Aborting...

error though.

Hello Karol.

That's another package I'm talking about cinnamon-settings and not about cinnamon-settings-daemon.
Your error could I think be solved by installing gnome-common.

That's cinnamon-session not settings :-)

After installing gnome-common, it installed OK.
Please post your build log.

I don't see any packages by that name, where did it come from?

All packages I try to build are from AUR. The url you can find at remark #5.

Re: [solved] Circular dependency of Cinnamon-git packages. How to

Umm, no. Look at the names, you're talking about two different packages (session vs settings).

The version you reference is really old, too. Did you download these a year and a half ago or what?

Re: [solved] Circular dependency of Cinnamon-git packages. How to

And since there is no package called "cinnamon-settings-git" and the link you posted was to "cinnamon-session-git", what are you building?

Found the PKGBUILD https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ci/c … t/PKGBUILD
It does indeed depend on cinnamon-git - maybe that's why this package has been removed ;P

Re: [solved] Circular dependency of Cinnamon-git packages. How to

Correct, I did take a good look again and I confused the two packages.
The good package is session and that one builds very good.
Next time I write down this sort of things I have to look even closer at the names.

Sorry for all the confusion.
