I have packages valac valac-0.12 libvala-0.12-0 libvala 0.12-dev installed on my natty and Beat-box is compiling and working well. Probably you should update/install vala packages?

run this commands first:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:vala-team
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install valac
valac --version

if it saids 0.12.0 you can build beat-box
if it doesn't, run this:
sudo apt-get install vala-0.12

now beat-box will work

After adding the PPA, updating and running 'sudo apt-get install valac' which told me I already had the newest version of valac.

musl1m@Ubuntu-MacBook:~$ valac --version
Vala 0.10.4

After removing valac-0.10 I tried compiling again and this is what I get now:

Hello,

I am starting development back up again for beatbox and am concentrating now on Natty architecture. A PPA is in the works as well.

Scott

Great to hear and look forward to testing it on Natty.

Thanks Scott Ringwelski, that solved my question.
