Description John N. Laliberte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-19 19:23:24 UTC
target keywords: alpha, amd64, sparc, x86

This is a stabilization bug for gnome-2.12.2

Some reference links:
package.keywords file -
Release Notes for 2.12 -

Some things in the package.keywords are already stable ( such as gtk, cairo, pango, etc )  The package.keywords file should help you test 2.12.2.

What we have already done ( using the package.keywords file ):
1.  Upgrade install to 2.12 with a current stable machine
2.  Clean install from 2005.1-r1 media

Bugs left on the tracker you may have questions about:
107784: is resolved.  it is still open so I remember to update the upgrade guide.  ( will happen tommorrow )
116372: cannot reproduce, if any of you can, please comment on the bug.  It is by no means a hard blocker, but would be nice to resolve before stabling.

This bug depends on the hal stable bug ( which depends on the dbus stable bug ).

I have been in contact with wolf31o2( for releng purposes ) over the past week or so about stabling 2.12.

Before stabling the packages, I ask that you talk to someone in the gnome herd just so we are aware. ( or perhaps you want us to actually mark the packages )

Please contact us you have any issues when testing GNOME 2.12.2.

Thanks, we really appreciate it.

sparc done, except for gnomemeeting that needs some more testing (and we don't have any rev stable anyway).
Comment 2 Joshua Jackson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-21 01:09:05 UTC
There's a problem with dbus stablizing for gnome 2.12.2. If you have mono set you have to install >=dev-util/mono-tools-1.1.9. As none are stable above that version, we can't go anywhere with this upgrade until mono-tools and monodoc are both stabalized

I was working with compnerd on this for x86 and that came up. So until that is resolved gnome can not go forward on x86...nor any arch that has said mono abilities.

Readd x86 when the above issues are resolved.
Comment 3 Tobias Scherbaum (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-21 08:09:11 UTC
Any reason why the ~ppc keyword has been dropped from gnome-2.12.2?

I upgraded (most of) my gnome-2.10 installation to gnome-2.12.2 without any problems so far.
Comment 4 Peter Johanson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-21 12:39:02 UTC
Joshua: I've just readied the tree (with fixes to muine, gtk-sharp, gtksourceview-sharp, etc) for moving to the new monodoc/mono-tools split, and informed compnerd that he can go ahead with stabilizing those. I'm suggesting the 1.1.10 versions of both of those for stabilization, but have not had time to test those on the stable mono.
Comment 5 John N. Laliberte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-21 13:19:28 UTC
re-adding x86 per latexer's comments above.
Comment 6 John N. Laliberte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-21 13:50:30 UTC
@dertobi123: looks like it was added back to 2.12.0, but not .1, so it wasn't carried through when we made the 2.12.2 ebuild.

re-added in cvs.
Comment 7 Joshua Jackson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-21 20:54:03 UTC
stable on x86
Comment 8 Tobias Scherbaum (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-22 09:43:56 UTC
Stable on ppc.
Comment 9 Anonymous 2006-01-22 09:59:59 UTC
When is gnome-light going to stable? I think it could be marked stable now also, as it has fewer deps then gnome.
Comment 10 Markku 2006-01-22 10:27:50 UTC
I found out that emerge -uaDvN wants to flipflop between media-libs/gst-plugins 0.8.10 and 0.8.11

Reason for that is that some plugins are still version 0.8.10, version 0.8.11 shoukl be masked stable.

Following plugins were outdated on my machine:

They are stable on sparc, but not in others.
Comment 11 Daniel Gryniewicz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-22 12:44:26 UTC
amd64 done
Comment 12 Lares Moreau 2006-01-22 16:52:24 UTC
(In reply to comment #11)
> amd64 done

pls update digest
Comment 13 Luis Medinas (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-22 17:39:28 UTC
it's fixed for amd64
Comment 14 Andrea Ratto 2006-01-23 10:08:28 UTC
gnome-base/gnome-light-2.12.0 needs to be declared stable on x86 and amd64.
Comment 15 Nak Yeon Hwang 2006-01-27 01:34:01 UTC
Are there no gentoo people using both of gnome-2.12 and mathematica? When I run mathematica, the desktop switching applet freezes. mathematica version I'm using is 5.0 or 5.2. And hanyang fonts (i.e. gulim.ttc and batang.ttc) don't appear in my gnome menu and any other gnome programs (maybe gtk+2 applications). I wonder whether these two problems are related to each other or not. Temporarily I masked gnome-2.12 and gtk+-2.8, and came back to gnome-2.10. Any people to give me some hope?
Comment 16 Nak Yeon Hwang 2006-01-28 23:19:38 UTC
Never mind what I said about mathematica. It is not gentoo specific and has already been reported into gnome bugzilla.
Comment 17 Zaheer Abbas Merali (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-03 11:21:18 UTC
why is gstreamer@ cc'd, it looks like an arch issue re: flip-flopping
Comment 18 John N. Laliberte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-02-03 11:26:56 UTC
other people were cc'd just to keep them informed as to what was going on.
Comment 19 Thomas Cort (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-21 14:10:16 UTC
gnome-2.12.3 has been marked stable on alpha wrt Bug 126321, so there isn't much point in marking 2.12.2. I'm closing this bug since alpha is the last arch CC'd.
