Hey Guys,

Having some trouble with building Network Manager on two different 
distros (Ubuntu and Arch).

On Ubuntu, the error seems to be that it can't find the NetworkManager 
module in
I can do from gi.repository import NetworkManager in a python session 
from my regular shell, but with the jhbuild shell's python sesison I cannot.

On Arch, it can find the module, however I receive this error instead 
(again with

gi.repository.NetworkManager object has no attribute 'SettingDcb' 
seemingly in response to a __getattr call.

When I drop to shell and run make, I get a similar error:

the step GEN settings-docs.c gives the error: 
../../libnm-util/nm-setting-docs.xml:98: parser errror: Premature end of 
data in tag nm-setting-docs line 5

Could very easily be my own fault that I'm encountering these errors 
although I believe I've done everything correctly.

Thanks for any support you guys can offer.  I would really like to get 
NM to build so I can build the modules it depends on and start hacking 
at them :)

I have now a similar issue:

On Fedora, if I remove the gobject-introspection-devel package, the
following fails:

$ git clean -fdx && ./ --enable-gtk-doc && make
Making all in api
make[3]: Entering directory `/data/src/NetworkManager/docs/api'
  DOC   Preparing build
  DOC   Scanning header files
  DOC   Introspecting gobjects
  DOC   Rebuilding template files
  DOC   Building XML
/bin/sh: -chmod: command not found
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `../../libnm-util/nm-setting-docs.xml', needed by `settings-spec.xml'.  
make[3]: Leaving directory `/data/src/NetworkManager/docs/api'

But it does not fail during configure, but during make.

I think this was broken by commit

The workaround is to install gobject-introspection-devel, or configure
with --disable-gtk-doc.
