If anyone is interested, to auto enable cockpit at boot:

sudo systemctl enable cockpit.socket
sudo systemctl start cockpit.socket

At least to me this was not obvious, but you must go to your user context menu in the upper right>Authentication and explicity enable a SSH key to be used to authenticate against other systems. Now I can add my virtual machines without issue.

Please add "packagekit" as an optdepends as of cockpit version 143.

Hello there, any one else with this issue when trying to enable cockpit ?

# systemctl start cockpit.service
# systemctl enable cockpit.service
The unit files have no installation config (WantedBy, RequiredBy, Also, Alias
settings in the [Install] section, and DefaultInstance for template units).
This means they are not meant to be enabled using systemctl.
Possible reasons for having this kind of units are:
1) A unit may be statically enabled by being symlinked from another unit's
.wants/ or .requires/ directory.
2) A unit's purpose may be to act as a helper for some other unit which has
a requirement dependency on it.
3) A unit may be started when needed via activation (socket, path, timer,
D-Bus, udev, scripted systemctl call, ...).
4) In case of template units, the unit is meant to be enabled with some
instance name specified.

For reference:

# cat /usr/lib/systemd/system/cockpit.service
Description=Cockpit Web Service

ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/remotectl certificate --ensure --user=root --group= --selinux-type=

networkmanager is not a hard dependency. Please make it optional.

Getting the following issue: commented on 2016-02-29 15:27

This requires to install `wayland` as dependency on a headless server. Does anybody know where the wayland dependency comes from?

Can we add --localstatedir=/var to avoid creating /usr/var directory?

brightonbob commented on 2015-12-08 20:39

Thanks, just installed 86.1 - works on Firefox 42 - errors (as below, session expired etc) on latest nightly (45.0a1)

brightonbob commented on 2015-11-22 13:43

After issues with previous version and updating to latest version (0.84.2). I now cannot login completely i.e name/password is accepted but I get error:

Your session has expired. Please log in again."
With options to "Try to reconnect" or "Login again"
(Neither option works)

Answering my own question. I have it running now by removing "--selinux-type=" from the cockpit.service file

gps1539 commented on 2015-11-21 01:47

Thanks for creating this package

It seems to install OK but I can not start it via systemctl and I see an error
Process: 929 ExecStartPre=/usr/bin/remotectl certificate --ensure --user=root --group= --selinux-type= (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)

Am I missing a dependency? is selinux required?

edrex commented on 2015-10-03 06:58

Needs make dependency on automake:

+ autoreconf -f -i -I tools
sh: aclocal: command not found
autoreconf: aclocal failed with exit status: 127

ninhnq commented on 2015-08-12 04:06

Hi irtimmer,
Can you help me with the installation process? It seems to be installed successful, but not working on localhost:9090.
Should I install nginx or apache as well?

Conglezu commented on 2015-04-07 16:27

Cannot find it in aur for ARM. Is there a timeframe for poping it out there ?

anatolik commented on 2015-02-07 17:08

Hi irtimmer, do you want to take over cockpit-git package that I currently own? It is better if one person will manage both packages.

0.33: Docker console
please update.

leedev commented on 2014-11-19 07:33

xmlto needs to be added as a make dependence. It builds fine after it is installed.

configure: error: the xmlto command was not found (perhaps --disable-doc)
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().

ImNtReal commented on 2014-09-08 17:41

Shouldn't the cockpit.pam file be copied to /etc/pam.d/cockpit instead of /etc/pam?

ato commented on 2014-04-26 08:59
