updated to 0.2.9, the act_runner user gets now added to the docker group automatically and looks for a .runner file in /etc/act_runner. Docker group is not required if you use the label "self-hosted" during registration.

To register the runner (create the .runner in /etc/act_runner):

cd /etc/act_runner
sudo -u act_runner act_runner register --config /etc/act_runner/act_runner.yaml

Thanks for the hint and apologies, I forgot to update the .SRCINFO. It's fixed now.

I think the aarch64 addition has messed something up:

hi @madskjeldgaard

thanks for the input. I've added the aarch64 as a supported architecture.

Let me know if that change works for you as I don't have an aarch64 device at the moment.

Hi! It would be great if you could add support for aarch64 in this as well.

The binaries are available from the same repo with arm64 instead of amd64 as the arch.

I tested it now and it works here. I called paru -G act-runner-bin and then modified the file to look like this:

# Maintainer: Manuel Gugger <mdgdot[at]tutanota[dot]com>

pkgdesc="A runner for Gitea Actions based on GitHub's Act"
optdepends=('docker: for running containers')



package() {
    mv act_runner-${pkgver}-linux-arm64 act_runner
    install -Dm755 act_runner -t "$pkgdir/usr/bin"
    install -Dm644 "$srcdir/act_runner.service" "$pkgdir/usr/lib/systemd/system/act_runner.service"
    install -Dm644 "$srcdir/act_runner.yaml" "$pkgdir/etc/act_runner/act_runner.yaml"
    install -Dm644 "$srcdir/act_runner.sysusers" "$pkgdir/usr/lib/sysusers.d/act_runner.conf"
    install -Dm644 "$srcdir/act_runner.tmpfiles" "$pkgdir/usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/act_runner.conf"

I think you might want to add how to set up the service, probably in the wiki page.

Basically I have to do the following before the service can start:

  1. register the runner with gitea instance, by running act_runner register --config /etc/act_runner/act_runner.yaml at /var/lib/act_runner. Make sure the file is accessible by act_runner user (just chown to the user).
  2. add act_runner to docker group since this relies on docker.

thanks for your input!

I've adapted the package to use its own act_runner user instead of root and it will use /var/lib/act_runner as HOME-env.

The .runner file should still go in /etc/act_runner.

ksj commented on 2024-02-13 15:12 (UTC)

In systemd service is missing Environment="HOME=/root/"

Otherwise it will fail with bash: .cache/act/180b39b7a2ede212/act/workflow/ No such file or directory When you try workflow in project in gitea. Use "WorkingDirectory=" doesn't work.

Also attached act_runner.yaml is older than latest config - generated with "act_runner generate-config"
