    Strange dependencies with new gnome-shell

    We have the new gnome-shell_3.6.1-3ubuntu1 in RR repo now.
    That flavour is build against the new libcogl11 (instead of libcogl9).

    Also new libclutter-1.0-0 (1.12.2-0ubuntu1) is build against libcogl11,
    like libclutter-gtk-1.0-0 (1.4.0-1) too.

    Well, one would expect that there were the related new mutter too.
    However, the new version (3.6.1-1ubuntu1), which is build against libcogl11,
    bears the new name libmutter0a (instead of libmutter0).
    So it cannot be installed and the old lincogl9 thus cannot be removed.

    One more time:
    we need the package libmutter0, built against libcogl11 or a new gnome-shell built against libmutter0a.

    Just updated my sources, and I'm seeing 3.6.1-0ubuntu1.1

    That's on the US Server. Let's check the Main Server...

    Nope, same version there as well.

    Re: Strange dependencies with new gnome-shell

    The second new Gnome-shell has been built: 3.6.1-3ubuntu2.

    But it cannot be installed because of gir1.2-gnomedesktop-3.0.

    gnome-shell:
    Depends: gir1.2-gnomedesktop-3.0 (>=3.6.1) but 3.6.0.1-0ubuntu2 is to be installed

    Well this is why you shouldn't use -proposed with development release cycles any more.

    Anyway, thanks for pointing out the problem. It should be resolved soon.

    Jeremy, how could I have pointed this to you and other readers, If I hadn't enabled the proposed repo then?

    I have no problems what so ever with this kind of development of packages.
    I merely wanted to warn people not to try to force install new gnome-shell and mutter yet.

    And yes I can see that new gnome-desktop3 (3.6.1-0ubuntu1)is in RR now.

    Other readers shouldn't be using -proposed either.

    We had figured out that gnome-desktop3 needed updating, but I didn't realize it was my fault for my gnome-shell upload until you posted. We don't yet have a pretty NBS tracker like we had for quantal and previous releases now that we don't have NBS problems in the archives any more (except in -proposed).
