Garcon seems incompatible with systemd 242.19-1. Downgrading systemd to 241.93-1 fixes Chrome OS Files integration and launching from the Terminal app.

I had to downgrade systemd to version 271.7-2 in order to get garcon to work again.

Hello. First of all thanks a lot for the package!

I have the same problem with @uncon. I can't seem to run vim after updating to the latest release, because of "unresolvable package conflicts" with xxd-standalone. Anyone know how to work around this?

On chromeos 75.0.3753.0, i had to change pkgver to r134.7dac7e9 and remove xxd-standalone from depends to get it up & running.

@nickpelone, I noticed same as well, don't have time to identify the root cause of the issue yet. Another issue with arch container is there is no way to use graphics accelerarion yet, due to old glibc version used for sommelier build by Google - trying to find a solution for this as well. Please share any findings you have related to these issues.

On a fresh container install in ChromeOS 74, I can't get garcon - and thus most of the integrations with ChromeOS - working. (X11 / sommelier is still working, should note)

Mar 04 08:09:13 penguin systemd[39]: Started Chromium OS Garcon Bridge. Mar 04 08:09:13 penguin garcon[131]: [131]: Server listening on vsock port 10000 Mar 04 08:09:13 penguin garcon[131]: [131]: Failed to notify host system that container is ready: Cannot find VM for ContainerListener Mar 04 08:09:13 penguin garcon[131]: [131]: Failed to set up host notifier

Garcon cant seem to signal to the host that it's there - so stuff like the Terminal app, Files app (?? may be an intersection between cros-sftp and cros-garcon here), etc don't work. The only way into the container is vmc start termina, followed by lxc start penguin / lxc console penguin.

Thanks for packaging this stuff for Arch!

Would it be possible to allow the installation of vim in parallel to this (or to just depend on vim)? Currently, I cannot install vim because vim and xxd-standalone are in conflict, and this makes me very sad.

sommelier launch scrip won't work properly if executed via the symlink from /usr/bin/sommelier. As for now to resolve the issue I am replacing /usr/bin/sommelier path with /opt/google/cros-containers/bin/sommelier at sommelier@.service and sommelier-x@.service

xkeyboard-config 2.24 break the sommelier-x service. Workaround is to comment out two lines starting with "<i372>" and "<i374>" in /usr/share/X11/xkb/keycodes/evdev and restart sommelier-x@0 user service.</i374></i372>
