To fix the "groupadd: PAM: Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info" error run this before you compile

sudo groupadd -r stapusr ; sudo groupadd -r stapsys ; sudo groupadd -r stapdev

Cockpit conflicts with firewalld.

On my cockpit-minimal PKGBUILD (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/PKGBUILD?h=cockpit-minimal) i remove the one from cockpit, but i guess that firewalld should maybe not include that conf file in the first place, right ?

Please remove ostree (then packagekit is usable), design patterns, react patterns, translating, exceptions, subscriptions and ovirt (then libvirt should be usable again) from the cockpit build, all of this is either not required on Arch Linux or should be included only in a test version.

After the recent upgrade to cockpit 167 I cannot manage my virtual machines anymore if I go to "oVirt Machines". Previously this worked fine and I could remotely manage all my VM's. Does somebody know a fix?

use /usr/lib/cockpit/ instead of /usr/libexec/ … Arch doesn't use libexec.

also, I wonder what the files in /usr/src/debug/usr/share/cockpit/ are?

FYI, cockpit now supports the use of packagekit to do software updates as of version 143, which is pretty nice:
https://github.com/cockpit-project/cockpit/releases/tag/143
However, cockpit will default to using ostree instead of packagekit if the ostree files are present. The only way I have found to ensure this function works is to make sure the ostree directory is not present in /usr/share/cockpit.
Since as far as I know this functionality of ostree isn't supported on Arch, you may consider removing the ostree component from the cockpit install and adding packagekit as an optional dependency.

Since cockpit 156 the Virtual Machines menu point has been replaced with oVirt. The bug suggests that this is a packaging issue: https://github.com/cockpit-project/cockpit/issues/8159

If you open the oVirt menu you will get every time a dialog asking you to connect to a oVirt host. But oVirt is another package in AUR and I don't think there are a lot of users wanting oVirt as a default in this cockpit package.

@jcstryker for inspiration my package removes a few:
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/cockpit-minimal

I guess the cleanest would be to make some split packages
