Curiously, after installing the stock available sugar-* rpm packages and launching sugar-emulator from within sugar-jhbuild works.

However, if the stock sugar-* packages are removed, sugar-jhbuild fails to run again

Downgrading the GConf2 and GConf2-devel packages to 2-2.32.4-1 works
This means that the gnome bug 664731 probably wasn't fixed in the latest packages available for f16 (GConf2-2.32.4-1.fc16)

If you run this command you will install Sugar at system level:

sudo yum groupinstall sugar-desktop

comment:5 Changed 12 years ago by humitos

This is the "solution" (a workaround):

sudo rpm --upgrade --oldpackage --verbose GConf2-2.32.4-1.fc16.i686.rpm GConf2-devel-2.32.4-1.fc16.i686.rpm

Can we do something to fix this issue permanently? Can we close this ticket?

comment:7 Changed 12 years ago by humitos

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing as "wontfix". The information on this ticket is still useful if you want to compile Sugar with jhbuild on a Fedora 16 system.
