buildlog without modemmanager

gnome-base/gnome-control-center-3.8.0 should not depend on >=net-misc/networkmanager-0.9.8[modemmanager] (only on >=net-misc/networkmanager-0.9.8)


above commit was reverted in master, you may want to keep the modemmanager dependency in the live ebuild.

Comment 1 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-03-31 13:11:06 UTC
I would keep it as-is because, from commit looks like they made modem-manager support automagic and, also, finally there were a networkmanager release with modem-manager-1 support

For that reason I think would be better to keep this as-is
Comment 3 Mike Auty (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-04-13 16:25:47 UTC
Surely this should have a match USE flags dependency (something like [?modemmanager]) rather than a hard requirement?  Recent portage versions should suggest a change/block when the USE flags don't match, so the user's alerted to the problem and can add it to one or remove it from the other.

Otherwise I thought general policy was to work with upstream to produce a patch that un-automagics the dependency rather than just marking as won't fix.

I'm going to reopen this so that it doesn't get forgotten.  If the decision really is to leave it as automagic without filing an upstream bug, then I won't reopen it again. I'd just like confirmation of that decision...
Comment 4 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-04-14 09:57:16 UTC
Well, you are true. The idea was to leave it as-is because upstream would drop the optional patch again once modemmanager-0.8 was released but, as looks it won't be released soon enough, the automagic would need to be solved (but I am not sure if upstream will want to do that as this optional feature is only temporal)
Comment 5 Evgeny Bobkin 2013-05-11 19:32:28 UTC
upstream has released with an automatic dependency check on modemmanager

I have tested the new version which build and runs good without modemmanager.

ebuild is attached.

Comment 7 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-05-11 20:41:03 UTC
# Check for libmm-glib for ModemManager1 support
                  [have_libmm_glib=yes], have_libmm_glib=no)
if test "x$have_libmm_glib" = xno ; then
  AC_MSG_WARN(*** Network panel will not be built with ModemManager1 support (libmm-glib not found) ***)
  AC_DEFINE(HAVE_MM_GLIB, 1, [Defined if libmm-glib is available])
AM_CONDITIONAL(HAVE_MM_GLIB, test "x$have_libmm_glib" = "xyes")

-> It still looks automagic, I mean, when modemmanager is present, people will get its support enabled and they cannot disabled it, while, if it's not present at build time, it will get disabled:
