Just one issue, you only added the creation of the dbus user and group to post_upgrade()

You need to add it to post_install() as well because when a user installs dbus for the first time the user and group does not exist.

The "filesystem" package for arch linux has changed. By default it included a dbus user and group in /etc/group and int /etc/passwd

However they removed this last month in filesystem-2017.03-2.

This causes an issue for fresh installs that need dbus-nosystemd, it doesn't run on fresh installs because the user and group do not exist.

Please update the install file to create a dbus user and group on installation/upgrade of the package.

We've agreed to use dbus-openrc + dbus-nosystemd. All other variants will be removed.

What are the plans on autolaunch support for this package? Right now it's enabled implicitly due to the makedepends on libx11, so this package and dbus-x11-nosystemd do the same. If this is intended, perhaps merge both packages?

dbus-openrc is an initscript provider now, depending on dbus-nosystemd. Please update accordingly, thanks.

TZ86 commented on 2016-09-14 09:31

Ok, I will add it to optdepends with next update.

@TZ86: To still provide just that initscript, I created the package dbus-openrc-initscript (, providing "dbus-openrc" and depending upon "dbus". Then the optdepend "dbus-openrc" would make sense again.

Let's see what the maintainer of "dbus-openrc" decides to do in the longer term run.

TZ86 commented on 2016-09-14 06:57

This is just a legacy of times when dbus-openrc contained only initscript for dbus-{eudev,nosystemd} packages. Anyway, fixed.

Well, dbus-nosystemd states:

Optional Deps: dbus-openrc: dbus openrc initscript


Conflicts With: dbus libdbus

But, dbus-openrc states:

Provides: libdbus dbus

and thus dbus-openrc and dbus-nosystemd are conflicting, nevertheless dbus-openrc is optionally dependency for dbus-nosystemd.

How to sort out?
