recurrent problem with plasma dependency loop

Hi all,

The packages kde-cli-tools and plasma-workspace have dependency loop on each other.

The build system tries to build kde-cli-tools first, when  the correct order is to build plasma-workspace first. This repeatedly delayed some plasma packages and caused long-lasting version mismatch. e.g. https://bbs.archlinux32.org/viewtopic.php?id=2671

I wonder why kde-cli-tools is always scheduled first despite build failure?

Re: recurrent problem with plasma dependency loop

Most KDE packages hvae been built. I had to kick them manually.

Now Qt and KDE also got a "SSE2 infection" (for those affected):

Mar 12 17:21:01 arch32-staging ksplashqml[3242]: QGLXContext: Failed to create dummy context
Mar 12 17:21:02 arch32-staging ksplashqml[3242]: This program requires an X86 processor that supports SSE
2 extension, at least a Pentium 4 or newer
Mar 12 17:21:18 arch32-staging drkonqi[3245]: kf5.kwidgetsaddons: Invalid pixmap specified.

Some packges are still stuck due do an mplayer/ffmpeg mess:

warning: cannot resolve "libvpx.so=5-32", a dependency of "ffmpeg"
warning: cannot resolve "libswscale.so=5-32", a dependency of "x264"

Re: recurrent problem with plasma dependency loop

There is also an issue with kdeinit5, systemd-journald gets bombarded with silly log messages, almost killing my machines.
Not sure, if this happens also upstream..

Re: recurrent problem with plasma dependency loop

most probably, plasma-workspace misses some other dependencies, also (but I will check). forcing it to build will overwrite that check (and also break the cycle). What *sould* happen is:
Either plasma-workspace or kde-cli-tools is built first. If it fails, the other will be tried, too.
