The glib and python bindings have been seperated from the main tarball. When building the glib binding it tries to run udev-send which can't work when you're building in a chroot since the daemon isn't started. This patch fixes that:

This issue was actually mentioned on Planet Gnome just yesterday. Apparently, they're trying to figure out the best way to handle this (possibly shipping a prebuilt introspection file). The developer has suggested adding the file below to the tools/ directory of the dbus-glib package. Here's the file and his blog entry.

I haven't tried this out, but it looks like from the Makefile that just dropping it in tools/ would be sufficient.

We're now up to dbus-1.0.1 (though I don't appear to be able to change the bug title!). Required deps are pkg-config and libxml2, optional deps are X and SELinux, from what I can gather. I think the udev-send issue in the glib bindings has been fixed in dbus-glib-0.72. There's no occurrence of udevsend in that tarball and there's comments in NEWS and Changelog regarding using `dbus-daemon --introspect' to generate the DBus service introspect XML.

This is sort of in, but we are still missing the separate bindings page.

Until the D-Bus bindings are complete (only dbus-glib is available on the page right now), and all the packages that list D-Bus as a dependency are updated, the book may be a bit broken. I'll get it all done just as soon as I can.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

The D-Bus page has been updated to 1.0.2 with all references to the bindings removed. There is no a D-Bus Bindings page with the GLib, Python and Qt3 bindings on it. This is enough to satisfy the book.

Closing the ticket now, with some remaining work to do on the Bindings page, but it doesn't really affect the book.
