Re: gnome-shell Build proccess

I say again and again that you must do exactly what i said it seems that you do something wrong !

i said that remove all of your precede code that had been download and fetch them!
also why you use force_checkout instead of checkout?

Hi, I've tied your way of building GS, but my journey ends here:

Is it only temporary problem, or I'm missing something?

System is 32bit Ubuntu 11.10.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Paul !

after i take one month for build gnome i found a good way for build it.
note : i use ubuntu and i suggest you to use it too!
1. get jhbuild from source code of it in
<>(i khow you have it so please update it to latest

version it is very very important!)
2. in jhbuild source find modulesets/gnome-suites-core-3.4.modules
3. copy content of to your .jhbuildrc in
your home directory and stick in your mind to change moduleset to the
modules you find in precede step
4. ensure that /opt/gnome have write permission
5. delete all of your ancient source code
6. run jhbuild update
7. run jhbuild build
8. run jhbuild shell
9. run gnome-shell --replace
*: i suggest you to don't change any step and do it what i exactly said
*: currently gnome-shell have some bug that run slow.for more
information check

   I'm also facing troubles each time I try to build GNOME Shell and I
   would be very happy if this would work seamlessly one day. I also
   work with Fedora 16 and one think I always do is to run the
   following command:

   sed -ri 's/gpk-install-package-name/sudo yum install liboauth-devel
   rarian-devel rarian-compat gobject-introspection-devel/'

   I would suggest that the uses yum instead
   of gnome-packagekit because the window with the needed packages that
   pops up is too large even for 24" screens. This is maybe also a bug
   of gnome-packagekit as you cannot hit the "install-button" anymore.
   The rest adds packages which are missing in the script for Fedora.

   Still, at the moment I got stuck with building gjs. I get the
   following error:

   configure: error: Package requirements (gmodule-2.0 gthread-2.0
   gobject-introspection-1.0 >= 0.10.1 glib-2.0 >= 2.31.0 gobject-2.0
    >= 2.18.0 mozjs185) were not met:

   No package 'mozjs185' found

   What can I do to workaround that? Is there anybody where building
   works out of the box?
