Re: gnome unstable repository

Hey I saw a post I believe on the last page about notification panel. I am having the same problem. The application is there and working but the icon has disappeared. My cpufreq values keep resetting and on a gnome screen saver lock moving the mouse doesn't wake the box, just using the keyboard will. So far I love 2.28....

Hi! I'd like to ask where I can find pkgbuilds for this repo? I've tried ABS since it looked like semi-official repo but with no success.

I'd like to recompile some packages with PulseAudio support. BTW, are you planning pulseaudio as GNOME dependency?
It's official GNOME dependency now and I think it ought to be that people that don't want official dependencies for some reason should go that extra mile recompiling stuff not the other way around.

Whatever you decide I'd be happy just with PKGBUILDS for this repo. It's working O'kay - except empathy/telepathy and gdm that's not in it for some reason? Maybe some icons missing here and there.

Keep up the good work and thank you! smile

+1 would love for pulseaudio support to be enabled for 2.28 but if not just some pkgbuilds for the bits we need to recompile.
Thanks

I vote for PA too. I use it now on gnome 2.26 and it works perfect (Intel HDA).

Re: gnome unstable repository

I won't enable pulseaudio in the initial 2.28 release, maybe later during the GNOME 2.28 release. I don't have any need for pulseaudio, and I don't have time to maintain it at this moment. After GNOME comes Xorg and the regular updates, so I'm far from done.

I think the repository should be mostly finished now. i686 is lacking behind a few versions and packages, but x86_64 should be complete now. I also updated gdm to 2.28, which finally fixes the nasty duplicate popups when inserting memory cards and CDs.

When i686 is on par with x86_64, I'll have a look at what depends on testing and which packages in testing can be moved to core and extra. The remaining parts will receive a rebuild (mainly gtk2 because of libcups). I don't have any plans on sending these packages through testing, as that takes a lot of useless bandwidth from our mirrors.

Re: gnome unstable repository

Thats fine, I understand you have loads of packages to maintain so if you don't use/want pulseaudio theres no point maintaining it. Could you provide pkgbuilds for the parts that need recompiling to enable pulseaudio though. Thanks

Re: gnome unstable repository

Seems gnome-2.28 needs libcups 1.4 and once that one is installed from testing, then there is a buch of packages that are to be skipped, so I do not see how x86_64 could be complete now. All gnome upgrades seems to be half done and buggy as hell. I will put gnome and gnome-extra in Ignore Group, for at least some months still.

There are still problems with devicekit-disks and user privileges, I still can't mount ordinary dvd or flash drives... Everything else seem to work fine for now. Anybody else have this problem?

Per this article the shell was part of the release even though it was not part of the release notes.

Re: gnome unstable repository

I'm thinking about installing gnome one of these days. Should I install it before the upgrade to 2.28 and add it to IgnorePkg and IgnoreGroup for some time instead of waiting until 2.28 moves to Extra?

Re: gnome unstable repository

That depends on how functional is Gnome 2.28 when it reaches extra... For now as I've mentioned no problems except troubles mounting dvd's and metacity eating up cpu when compiz is enabled.

Re: gnome unstable repository

I upgraded my netbook to [testing] and [gnome-unstable]. I got Samsung-NC10 and it seems that everything works fine. Annoying thing is that I can't write anything on my ntfs partitions and there are many shity icons missing. I fix icons since there was an option to do it but still there is nothing new in this update apart pulseaudio and empathy. Cheese update was quiet nice since it looks much better and Epiphany works so fast!

Re: gnome unstable repository

i said in this thread multiple times, when gnome 2.28 is moved in testing, i will update empathy and upload it in community-testing.

Could you give some more information? All you've done until now is complaining about things not working or half done, but I haven't seen specific information from you about what specifically is broken and what needs to be done to fix it.
I have this repository running on 3 systems, one i686 and two x86_64. All work fine, though I can imagine there's some non-gnome software that fails because of unresolved dependencies or sobumps in gmime and poppler. With this release a lot of dependencies were restructured or dropped, so applications linking to these libraries could be missing libraries that used to be dependencies.

Re: gnome unstable repository

+1 for NOone being forced to use any sound system. I have no need for Pulse, dont want it. I was using alsa for quite a while after artsd disappeared. But now can do many more things with OSS4 and to me it makes everything sound better.

Still would like to know about disappearing icons in the notification area on the top panel.

The only problems I have ever had with automounts were policykit issues NOT devicekit. This forum has the quick one line solution for it and walll laaa all fixed!

Re: gnome unstable repository

Firstly, I am not complaining about your work. I am just so disappointed to see a half made gnome released every time there is a upgrade. The Gnome team seems more concerned about sticking to time schedules than to operability.

Secondly, here is the output when attempting upgrade:

Re: gnome unstable repository

OrangeRoot, Pulse is the upstream default. You won't be 'forced' to use it if it becomes part of the (gnome) group in Arch. Just like any other package, you can uninstall it and replace it with something else, OSSv4, alsa, your own bit-parser, whatever.

JGC, been using this on x86_64 off and on, haven't had any problems besides the compiz/metacity. Interesting thing is that, on startup, consecutive ps -e | grep metacity would show the process id of metacity increasing rapidly such that killall metacity would not find a running metacity process.

Re: gnome unstable repository

As said, this repository requires testing packages. If you're not using testing, you can't use this repository. I am sure that device-mapper will move to core shortly, but given the fact that cups is still in testing and people still having problems with it, I'll lower the dependency on libcups when this goes to extra. The device-mapper dependency will stay though, as devicekit-disks needs a hack to build with older versions (our package in core has a bug that causes a build failure).

Re: gnome unstable repository

Fair enough. Good answer. Even poor old linfan understands that one wink

Can I put something like this in IgnoreGroup:

IgnoreGroup = gnome-2.28 gnome-extra-2.28

or how should it be done?

Re: gnome unstable repository

@ngoonee  That is one of the big reason I like Arch. They use sane,  non meta packaged apps for the most part. Some things just have to fit together, but on the things that don't choice is a wonderful thing.

The only problems I have ever had with automounts were policykit issues NOT devicekit. This forum has the quick one line solution for it and walll laaa all fixed!

Can you give us a link to the one liner? I've tried to enable sudo on polkit-authorization but to no avail, it won't let me change the settings...

Re: gnome unstable repository

cat /etc/PolicyKit/PolicyKit.conf



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!-- -*- XML -*- -->

<!DOCTYPE pkconfig PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD PolicyKit Configuration 1.0//EN"
"http://hal.freedesktop.org/releases/Pol … config.dtd">

<config version="0.1">
<return result="yes"/>
</config>


I will do you one better because this is such a PITA for new installs and the fix isn't complicated.

The line <return result="yes"/> is the fix.

I think on this one I had to reboot because there so many layers involved. Hal, Dbus, kernel, udev, policykit.. blah blah then it ran fine.

Hope it helps you.
