Description michael higgins 2011-01-23 01:38:31 UTC is needed to get gnome-shell loaded

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to load gnome shell
2. doesn't load
3. errors are thrown

Actual Results:  
error about cannot open shared object file:

Expected Results:  
gnome-shell goodness

Here's a quick fix to illustrate, but should be patched in the ebuild, somehow, maybe?

FEATURES="keepwork" emerge -av net-wireless/gnome-bluetooth

cp ${PORTAGE_TMPDIR}/portage/net-wireless/gnome-bluetooth-2.91.5/work/gnome-bluetooth-2.91.5/applet/.libs/ /usr/lib/

cd /usr/lib && ln

Attach full build log.
At casual glance, if that lib is built, it should be installed too.

Seems it is, but installed in the wrong place for gnome-shell for some reason. Well, if the info helps, it helps.
Comment 4 Rafał Mużyło 2011-01-23 05:53:41 UTC
What's your version of gnome-shell ? 
It appears at least 2.91.4 is required.
Attach its build log.

Comment 6 Rafał Mużyło 2011-01-24 10:29:00 UTC
As you might guess, build log with silent make is not that useful in this case,
attach log of reemerge with V=1. Post also output of ldd on libgnome-shell.

Re-emerged with V=1

I'm starting to get the idea what could have been wrong and it's something else than you think - your own log says libgnome-bluetooth-applet is getting installed.

Could you provide the *exact* output upon the failure ?
Comment 10 Michael Lippautz 2011-01-24 20:20:56 UTC
As I think I get the same message as the author, so here are my errors:

$ gnome-shell --replace
/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/dbus/ DeprecationWarning: object.__init__() takes no parameters
  super(Connection, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
Fensterverwalter-Warnung:Log level 16: Failed to load shared library '' referenced by the typelib: Kann die Shared-Object-Datei nicht öffnen: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
Fensterverwalter-Warnung:Log level 8: g_ascii_strncasecmp: assertion `s2 != NULL' failed
Shell killed with signal 11

The messages may have to do with gobject introspection failure (wrong built?) as typelib is mentioned.

I am also attaching an output of ``gnome-shell --replace --verbose''.

git the exactly same error :/
Comment 13 Rafał Mużyło 2011-01-27 17:48:47 UTC
First, I must state that I have no experience with gobject-introspectin.

Having sad that, it seems that the wrapper lib (typelib ?) needs to have the path to $(libdir)/gnome-bluetooth passes to at build.
Perhaps a correct --library-path option passed at build to g-ir-scanner would help ?
Comment 14 Ben L. 2011-01-27 18:53:09 UTC
yes, this will fix the problem:

~ # ln -s /usr/lib64/gnome-bluetooth/ /usr/lib64/

That so called "fix" is obviously not the correct way to do it.

Problem fixed in gnome-shell :

> Problem fixed in gnome-shell :

This just moves the problem from runtime to compile-time for us.
Comment 18 Nirbheek Chauhan (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-02-18 06:09:52 UTC
This should be now fixed, compilation problems were caused due to la-file removal in gnome-bluetooth.

Thanks for reporting!
Comment 19 Damien Thébault 2011-03-05 13:34:03 UTC
I have "*.la" in INSTALL_MASK.
Setting INSTALL_MASK="" for gnome-bluetooth solves it for me too.
