I integrated this on a Raspberry PI, and here are a couple of comments:

  • I had to add armv7h to the arch list in the PKGBUILD, which seems to work without issue.
  • I switched the conserver.service over to the simple type and call conserver without any arguments. This makes sure that the logs are send to journald, which does log rotation/truncation etc. without requiring logrotate etc.

Disregard my comment - I had an old orphaned version of the package installed that was getting hit first in my $PATH.

@KingSpeedy: cannot confirm. For me it definitely links against openssl 1.1.1, meaning: /usr/lib/

What was installed on the system you built it? 1.0 or 1.1 or both? What is /usr/lib/ pointing at?

This seems to specifically need core/openssl-1.0 now. Without it I got a runtime error of "error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

the PKGBUILD seems to need various fixes to build (and build something useful), parts of it already are mentioned below.

Maybe you could use something more like this:

plus enabling a few more options (others seem to need).

console did not work for me when tried to log in with it to company conserver. It faied with: console: getservbyname(conserver) failed I recompiled with adapting configure options from Fedora build [ ] which are: --with-libwrap \ --with-openssl \ --with-pam \ --with-gssapi \ --with-striprealm \ --with-port=782 With this, it works now fine. (The company most likely uses conserver on RHEL, so we can imply that these flags are needed for Red Hat compatibility.)

With new MIT krb5 in [Core], it will complain about missing /usr/lib/ (even recompile) This command might solve the problem. But not sure why recompile don't work. sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

Please update the compile option: ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-port=782 --with-libwrap --with-openssl --with-pam
