thanks for maintaining this! I am successfully using a modified version of this package using python3 instead of python2 (removing some obsolete deps along the way): It works well for me on EC2, but of course it is always hard to test all aspects of cloud-init. However, I checked the imports in the cloud-init source code, so I have at least some confidence that the updated dependencies are correct. Could I maybe interest you in testing that and maybe merging those changes into your package? :)

Hello Antoine,

Good catch, thanks a lot for this remark :) I added pkgconf as a build dependency. According to the build logs, this indeed moves systemd files from "/lib/systemd" to "/usr/lib/systemd", which feels much better.

I also noticed that dhclient was required (an exception in the cloud-init logs led me there: , installing dhclient fixes the issue).

I've just made a commit to fix both issues.

Out of curiosity antoine, on which platform are you using cloud-init ? I'm using it on ScaleWay and EC2 and would love to gather a bit of feedback about people using it on other platforms :)

Hello, you need to add pkgconf as dev dependencies. relies on pkg-config to find the location of the systemd units. The fallbacks (look at pkg_config_read are in /lib/systemd).

In consequence, you need to either sed the default entries or provide pkg-config during the build.
