Bug Description

Wingpanel (latest bzr) fails to run with or without indicators on Arch Linux x86_64, with GCC 4.8.1 and vala 0.20.1. Here's the console output with one indicator, indicator-pantheon-session (also latest bzr):

Thank you for the report.

We only support Vala 0.16 at the moment. We will be looking into adding support for a more recent version of Vala for the next release.

Oh that was it then, thx for the quick answer. I'm working on packaging Pantheon for Arch Linux, everything works albeit with a few rough edges, apart from this and things relying on an older evolution, like maya-calendar. Can't wait for the next release!

Hmm I tried building wingpanel with vala 0.16.1, result is the same as above.

From the output I see there was a problem extabilishing a connection to the DBUS.
this is a relevant discussion:

It would seem that not all indicators make wingpanel segfault, the power indicator alone allows it to run (although the indicator fails to load properly). Without a session, sound and possibly other indicators, wingpanel successfully launches and loads slingshot. Here is the terminal output with only the power indicator:

An arch has successfully launched wingpanel by downgrading valato 0.16.1 so I gave it a go and I can confirm it now works. This bug can thus be closed.
