Description David Ing 2018-09-04 22:51:51 UTC
I am on Linux Mint Tara (equivalent to Ubuntu 18.04).

After bootstrapping cerbero, I executed the following:

    ./cerbero-uninstalled package gstreamer-1.0

I observed an error:

    	[(36/80) libsoup -> fetch ]
	-----> Fetching tarball to /home/ding/github/gstreamer/cerbero/build/sources/local/libsoup-2.60.3/libsoup-2.60.3.tar.xz
	[(36/80) libsoup -> extract ]

	[(36/80) libsoup -> configure ]

	Recipe 'libsoup' failed at the build step 'configure'
	Select an action to proceed:
	[0] Enter the shell
	[1] Rebuild the recipe from scratch
	[2] Rebuild starting from the failed step
	[3] Skip recipe
	[4] Abort

I was able to execute the following as a workaround:

    sudo apt install intltool

Interesting, it was added to every other bootstrap except Debian. Should be added to cerbero/bootstrap/ line 48 . Do you want to make a patch ?

Add intltool package dependency for debian bootstrap

I added the intltool package to the debian bootstrap.

I checked the bootstrap command and I got past the debian package install phase.  During the debian package install phase, I saw the following line of output which is correct on my machine:

intltool is already the newest version (0.51.0-5ubuntu1).

I also added `/.idea` to the `.gitignore` file ... which is helpful to anyone who uses PyCharm.  I executed `git status` at the terminal to make sure that my changes to `.gitignore` behave properly.
Comment 3 Nicolas Dufresne (ndufresne) 2018-09-07 20:37:17 UTC
I've split that in two patches, as the two changes was not strictly related.

Thanks for your contribution.
