Hey, thanks for updating.
Shouldn't it optdepend on libmariadbclient instead of mysql? The latter has been dropped.

Anyway.. I'll read more, because as I stated earlier, I'm a systemd beginner. :-)

Well, it's in the testing phase. I would like to use cfengine for an Arch-based
infrastructure, so far, I didn't have the time.

Concerning -F: I think running in the foreground is for testing and debugging.
cf-* are Unix daemons which should run once and only once and hence have a
PID file. Ok, the PID file is in a non-FHS-conform location in '/srv/cfengine'
but this is something which should be fixed upstream.

Thanks for adding the service files!
Can you justify choosing Type=forking instead of specifying -F cli option for executables?
I honestly can't see which option is better, but I know -F was adjusted to increase systemd/upstart/etc. compatibility, so maybe it is the way to go?

Added systemd support. Feedback welcome.

I got the daemons up and running (doing nothing) with:

cf-agent -B
touch /srv/cfengine/inputs/
touch /srv/cfengine/inputs/

systemctl start cf-execd
systemctl start cf-serverd
systemctl start cf-monitord

I have to dig in and read a lot on systemd, this may take a while :-)

zizzfizzix commented on 2012-11-19 00:04

could you please add systemd service files, e.g. from ?
