Vala and Plank dock

Postby rastersoft » Thu Mar 06, 2014 20:59

Hi all:

I want to install Plank dock, but I'm unable. First I tried with equo, but it is not available in the entropy database.

Then I tried to download the source code from the official page, but the ./configure command fails because it can't find the vala compiler. I fixed this by doing a symling from /usr/bin/valac-0.22 to /usr/bin/valac and from /usr/bin/vala-0.22 to /usr/bin/vala. But then I receive the error: configure: error: Vala must be built with --enable-vapigen

How can I fix this?

Thanks.

Ok, I found the problem: it needs not only the links for vala and valac, but also for vala-gen-introspect, vapigen and vapicheck.

I'm writting an eselect file for vala to avoid this kind of problems in the future.
