quequotion: I haven't and probably won't because it would be meaningless. It is my understanding that bamfwatcher is only needed to prevent crashes in Unity, from which I try to stay as far as possible. I haven't experienced any crash with bamf without bamfwatcher, then again, only plank is using it.

I don't think my package should replace this one anyhow, as mine is really for testing a hack: moving bamf's cache to /var/


Have you tested it?

If you mean so that quequotion can take over, then the answer is no. Arch is about providing vanilla packages, adding a bunch of files in the tarball, including C and Perl code, is not possible.

Should you want bamfwatcher, the required files have to come from the upstream bamf tarball, or you become upstream and host those files somewhere (that also means assuming all the responsabilities upstream have).

alucryd can you orphan it?

Well, if you're using [testing] you should be able to solve easy issues like this.

3 solutions:
- Don't use [testing]. Recommended unless you have a valid reason to do so ([testing] is more cutting edge is not a good reason, that is not true at all except in rare cases, there are only 13 packages in [testing] atm, and count usually don't go much higher).
- Add 'AUTOMAKE=automake' to the configure line.
- Install gnome-common-git which should support automake 1.14.

I'm using [testing], and installed automake 1.14. Here's the error:

kebertx: Yep, issue solved upstream :) Updated the PKGBUILD, thx for the heads up!

kebertx commented on 2013-06-14 20:50

Hm. Looks like the file bamf-matcher.c is not even in the new revision, now. I got the package to build only by commenting out your patch! That's progress for you, I suppose :)

alucryd commented on 2013-06-11 08:09

Some of the issues were fixed upstream. Well, sort of, telling gcc to warn instead of throwing an error is not exactly a fix. Still one issue remains which the patch I sent them fixed, but they didn't want it apparently. That patch is still included here. Anyway, important thing is, bamf-bzr now builds again :)

I've got bamf-bzr to install after modifying the upstream code... Bit hacky but it seems to work. More information on request. I will post back results after pantheon-session-bzr got installed.
