Please use sugar-build instead of sugar-jhbuild

got errors as well

Command given on main page didn't work for me either, but I was able to get sugar-jhbuild from the http link (not git:) in the git repo page...

  • I just tried ./sugar-jhbuild update on a new fresh install. The first line of output seems normal Initialized empty Git repository in ...sugar-jhbuild/jhbuild/.git/ then it says fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly and gives a traceback. Any suggestions? --Grantbow 04:00, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Seems to be working now, the server must have been unavailable for some reason. --Grantbow 09:50, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Old info

Removed from the page:

  • In addition to the dependencies listed, you may want to install the gtk-doc-tools package (this allowed me to build hippocanvas on Ubuntu Hardy). Mchua 22:01, 15 May 2008 (EDT)
  • gtk-doc-tools is (now) listed as a dependency for Ubuntu 8.10. Hardy's not supported any more for jhbuild as its GNOME is too old. --Morgs 09:09, 21 January 2009 (UTC)
  • If you run into an error during sugar-jhbuild build that looks something like "aclocal: macro `AM_PATH_PYTHON' required but not defined" try installing or updating your packages for autoconf and automake and running sugar-jhbuild build again. (worked for me on Ubuntu Hardy) Mchua 17:10, 15 May 2008 (EDT)
  • automake1.9 is listed as a dependency for Ubuntu 8.10. It depends on autoconf, so this should be handled by jhbuild's dependencies. --Morgs 09:14, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

"ERROR: Dependencies information is missing (unknown distribution/version)."

This is a new error and doesn't seem very helpful. I'd much prefer the list of packages not detected that we used to get. ETA: was able to trick it into continuing by copying a file in config/sysdeps/ over and :

 export SJH_DISTRIBUTION='darwin-unstable'

Ubuntu 10.4 hints

There seems to be a conflict with GTK on Ubuntu 10.4. If you get an error message:

Error fatal de E/S 11 (Recurso no disponible temporalmente) en la pantalla «:30»

then check ~/.sugar/default/logs/shell.log to see if there is this error:

.../ undefined symbol: GTK_WIDGET_HAS_FOCUS

If so, try a clean rebuild of sugar-artwork. (I went to extremes to make sure everything built fresh.)

rm -rf ./source/sugar-artwork
./sugar-jhbuild buildone sugar-artwork

Note that there is a problem with hulahop, but this should not impact Sugar other than the Browse activity.

Thanks to Sascha for helping me with this minor roadblock. --Walter 09:54, 13 May 2010 (EDT)
