emerge --info

evolution-data-server fails to compile. Probably the culprit is "error: Package `libgdata' not found in specified Vala API directories or GObject-Introspection GIR directories"

Comment 3 Bernd Feige 2021-04-17 07:47:16 UTC
Same here. Solution is to require dev-libs/libgdata +vala
Comment 4 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2021-04-17 22:01:46 UTC
Please attach a build log for evolution-data-server. I can't reproduce the problem here.

    gnome-extra/evolution-data-server: Depend on libgdata[vala?]
    If vala bindings are enabled, then we need libgdata's vala bindings if
    either oauth or gnome-online-accounts are enabled.
