i get a bunch of permission errors, running it as a user (which i think i'm supposed to do..?)

:: Running post-transaction hooks...\ (1/5) Reloading system manager configuration...\ (2/5) Reloading device manager configuration...\ LNXSYSTM:00: Failed to write 'change' to '/sys/devices/LNXSYSTM:00/uevent': Permission denied (... a ton of similar errors for usb, cmos, memory, virtual, etc.)

maybe related to this warning about my sudoers permissions?:\ warning: directory permissions differ on /etc/sudoers.d/\ filesystem: 750 package: 755\ warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/\ filesystem: 750 package: 755

but i read that sudoers is supposed to have 0440 permissions...

mount | grep vda /dev/vda on /opt/google/cros-containers type ext4 (ro,relatime) maybe should the file-system should be writeable?

The terminal would auto close before arch is fully booted

From 108 there is another cros guest tools called cros-im. What about packaging it for arch?

@mshaugh please update cros-garcon-conditions.conf as described by @agrueneberg

After upgrading to ChromeOS 112, the Terminal would time out trying to connect to the container. Just confirming that the fix suggested by @agrueneberg resolved the problem.

/dev/.host_ip has recently been removed:

Therefore, ConditionPathExists=/dev/.host_ip needs to be removed from cros-garcon-conditions.conf for cros-garcon to start (I'm currently on Beta 112), otherwise:

Mar 14 22:28:20 arch systemd[91]: Chromium OS Garcon Bridge was skipped because of an unmet condition check (ConditionPathExists=/dev/.host_ip).

This PKGBUILD is broken.

The service file indeed does not exist, because cros-sftp has been deprecated and is no longer needed, because sftp is launched by a different means now.

Is "Linux files" integration working for anyone out of the box? If I click on the entry in the Files app, no files are shown. The cros-garcon user service in Arch responds as follows:

Feb 04 20:25:14 arch garcon[219]: [219]: sftp: accepted connection from vsock:2:3612554745
Feb 04 20:25:14 arch garcon[219]: [219]: Failed to execute requested program in child process: No such file or directory
Feb 04 20:25:14 arch garcon[219]: [219]: sftp: failed to spawn child process: No child processes (10)
Feb 04 20:25:14 arch garcon[219]: [219]: sftp: accept waiting

garcon is trying to execute /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server (see, which in Arch is in /usr/lib/ssh. Symlinking fixes the issue:

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/openssh
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server /usr/lib/openssh/

What's a good way to deal with this as part of this package given that we cannot fix the path directly?

@allexj you must use systemctl --user

systemctl --user enable sommelier@0
systemctl --user enable sommelier@1
systemctl --user enable sommelier-x@0
systemctl --user enable sommelier-x@1
systemctl --user start sommelier@0
systemctl --user start sommelier@1
systemctl --user start sommelier-x@0
systemctl --user start sommelier-x@1

allexj commented on 2022-11-22 23:44 (UTC)

If I try to enable sommelier@0.service, sommelier-x@0.service, sommelier@1.service and sommelier-x@1.service all of them are units not found.
