Can you have a look and see if the version in rawhide fixes this problem? You'll
need to also update anjuta-gdl and gnome-build. If it works, I'll give it a week
for it to settle down and import and build for core.
Comment 2 Bryan Christ 2007-01-22 11:29:50 EST
Here's what I installed:

rpm -Uvh anjuta-2.1.0-1.fc7.i386.rpm anjuta-gdl-0.7.0-1.fc7.i386.rpm
gnome-build-0.1.4-2.fc7.i386.rpm anjuta-docs-2.1.0-1.fc7.i386.rpm

I still get the same error message.
Comment 3 Marc Maurer 2007-07-21 08:44:01 EDT
FYI: they disabled this in anjuta intentionally, as it wasn't working properly.
Comment 4 Debarshi Ray 2008-03-31 10:17:12 EDT
Reassigning to myself since I own this package now.

Marc, Debarshi,

Has this feature been reinstated (since comment #3).  If so, I will test it on
Fedora 8.  

Comment 7 Debarshi Ray 2008-04-05 14:25:33 EDT
Importing a project from existing sources works for me on anjuta-2.2.3-5. You
can take it from the updates-testing repositories for F-8. Alternatively you can
grab the package from: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=1302

If it works, you might want to give a positive karma to the anjuta-2.2.3-5
package here:

Let us know how it turned out for you.
Comment 8 Bryan Christ 2008-04-11 10:58:32 EDT
Retested with package: anjuta-2.2.3-6.fc8.i386.rpm

I got this error message when trying to import:

Could not find a valid project backend for the directory given
(/home/bchrist/devel/hiwire/hwclient). Please select a different directory, or
try upgrading to a newer version of the Gnome Build Framework.
Comment 9 Debarshi Ray 2008-04-12 09:00:06 EDT
(In reply to comment #8)

What build-system are you using in the projects that you are trying to import?

Can you upload a tarball of /home/bchrist/devel/hiwire/hwclient somewhere on the
