Bug Description

This is on Arch Linux. Using vala 0.11 (vala 0.10 is fine), compilation fails with:

'configure' finished successfully (1.142s)

This is a known problem, on Ubuntu indeed the source package requires valac-0.10 to compile.
It is a vapi problem, with vala 0.10 takes 3 arguments, with 0.11 it only takes 2 instead. I'll probably have to ship a custom .vapi file to address the problem, I'll have a look on this.

Changed in ejecter:
status: New → Confirmed

It's probably worth to focus on support of recent vala versions and drop support for legacy versions from end-of-lifed distro.
