Seems to be broken:

==> Starting prepare()...
sed: can't read depot-tools-auth: No such file or directory
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in prepare().
Error making: depot-tools-git

Looks like depot-tools-auth was removed a while back (, so the package is broken now.

Heads up, gclient sync mostly with --jobs 1 will corrupt .git repositories unless you have applied this patch:

for example: in chromium's src/ the remote (git remote -v) will get replaced from: origin (fetch) to: origin (fetch)

also seen that src/.git/index got truncated to 100k from 45meg

Dropped as I'm not using depot_tools anymore.

You're fast! Thanks so much @yan12125.

@clpwn: Thanks for the report. Those issues should have been fixed.

When building using this repo, I had two issues:

1) Needed to chgrp -R wheel /opt/depot_tools && chmod -R g+w /opt/depot_tools in order to run without root. 2) I think the patches are slightly incomplete, due to running into this error when building:

  File "/opt/depot_tools/", line 20, in <module>
    import urllib2
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'urllib2'

Thanks it should have been fixed!
