python-dbus seems to be a mandatory dependency now ? pacserve refused to start without it

I've added Avahi support alongside multicast support for peer detection. There are probably still some bugs to work out but it works so far in my initial tests.

@Xyne Hi, there is a better way to work without users and sysusers. You only have to add to your service file "DynamicUser=yes" and some other security stuff (read here: ;-) Here is my version: By the way, are there any plans for avahi support?

Sorry, I added the pacserve user in haste. Today's update uses systemd.sysusers to add the user and group instead. The update should work if you stop the pacserve service first but manual intervention may be required. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I now see pacserve as user in sddm. uid=1002(pacserve) gid=1000(pacserve) groups=1000(pacserve)

Shouldn't uid be smaller than 1000?

Shouldn't the pacserve user and group be created as system ones, with (useradd|groupadd) -r …?

How does it directly depend on polkit?

archusr commented on 2017-04-02 19:35

Dependency polkit appears to be missing.

The backend is in the python3-threaded_servers package.
