Traceback (most recent call last):

the solution was to install gettext, but we should display a more explicit information to solve it.

This was encountered on sugar-jhbuild debian. Is gettext listed in the dependencies?

comment:6 Changed 15 years ago by RafaelOrtiz

yes gettext is listed on the dependencies.


i presume is a matter of the depscheck script not entirely working on debian..

comment:7 Changed 15 years ago by sascha_silbe

You mean gettext is not installed on your system, but "./sugar-jhbuild depscheck" doesn't output anything (not even a warning)?
Can you post the output of "lsb_release -a" and "git remote -v" (in the sugar-jhbuild directory), please?

  • Bug Status changed from New to Unconfirmed

For now i'm not able to reproduce it, leaving unconfirmed till further notice or till someone can setup a Sugar chroot enviroment in debian.

  • Bug Status changed from Unconfirmed to Needinfo
  • Distribution/OS changed from Unspecified to Debian
  • Keywords chroot added; sugar-love removed

Ah, so this is inside a chroot? It works fine on a regular install (I use sugar-jhbuild on Debian squeeze on my XO) so it's most likely something chroot-specific.
Setting to needinfo until someone can reproduce and provide the output requested above.

comment:11 Changed 15 years ago by RafaelOrtiz

Agree, this one seems to be chroot specific.
let's see if someone can reproduce it.

comment:13 Changed 14 years ago by sascha_silbe

  • Resolution set to obsolete
  • Status changed from accepted to closed

Cannot reproduce, sugar-jhbuild works fine for me inside chroot. Please reopen if you encounter this again.
