Talk:GNOME First Steps

Why must dbus and consolekit be added to default runlevel ? Is there a more official source than "it prevented someone from logging in"? According to Help:Funtoo_Editing_Guidelines, "Adding work-arounds to problems experienced No - open bug first on bug tracker.". -- Pytony (talk)

https://mail.gnome.org/archives/distributor-list/2012-January/msg00014.html "GDM is the primary consumer of ConsoleKit" its not a work around. http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/ConsoleKit/ <--- has dbus dependencies. look at the wordpress ebuild, it has work arounds from initial pulling from gentoo. its a good thing you messaged this i was going to post further work arounds because its ebuild has been broken, shipping with broken configs preventing installing. that sections news to me on the guidelines.

Then why does gdm have a consolekit use flag? :P -- Pytony (talk)
IUSE: accessibility, audit, branding, fprint, +introspection, ipv6, plymouth, smartcard, +systemd, tcpd, test, wayland, xinerama, debug

Use flags settings: -accessibility, -audit, -branding, -fprint, +introspection, +ipv6, -plymouth, -smartcard, -systemd, +tcpd, -test, -wayland, -xinerama, -debug

mine doesnt? i looked at the ebuild and it looks like systemd automatically flags consolekit as a dependency? im not that great with ebuilding so i may be wrong.Threesixes (talk) 19:37, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I was on my cellphone so I checked out on znurt which told me gnome-base/gdm hase a consolekit useflag. However, I just checked out the ebuild as well, it seems that gdm relies on consolekit only if systemd useflag is disabled. But who cares about systemd. :D -- Pytony (talk)

lol ok..... this loops back to the original subject of the talk page. if the useflag is set it pulls in the package, but doesnt set it to start @ default. im failing to see this as a work around, and more seeing it as a shortcoming of use flags pulling packages in? or shortcomings of packages pulled in to be set as default @ boot? we care about systemd long enough for it going into the garbage bin, and having packages that previously depend on it working without. idk what to think about it, if you really think its a work around, bug tracker it. =D Threesixes (talk) 00:11, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

USE Flags

GNOME should be mergeable by simply setting the desktop profile, enabling the gnome mix-in, and emerging GNOME. If this doesn't work, then it's a bug, and a bug should be filed.
