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.

Alad commented on 2016-09-17 23:42

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?

nous commented on 2016-09-17 13:04

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.

dreieck commented on 2016-09-14 08:46

@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.

dreieck commented on 2016-09-13 21:44

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?

1. please add 'dbus-x11' to "provides", "conflicts" and "replaces". This is in conflict with dbus-nosystemd.

2. i can't install dbus-nosystemd, if i am installed dbus-docs, because:
Error: Failed execution of the transaction (conflicting files)
dbus-nosystemd: /usr/share/doc/dbus/diagram.png already exists in the file system
dbus-nosystemd: /usr/share/doc/dbus/diagram.svg already exists in the file system
dbus-nosystemd: /usr/share/doc/dbus/examples/ already exists in the file system
dbus-nosystemd: /usr/share/doc/dbus/examples/example-session-disable-stats.conf already exists in the file system
dbus-nosystemd: /usr/share/doc/dbus/examples/example-system-enable-stats.conf already exists in the file system
dbus-nosystemd: /usr/share/doc/dbus/system-activation.txt already exists in the file system
Errors occurred, no packages were updated.

you can add " rm -r "${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/dbus" to "package()" for fix it OR add 'dbus-docs' to "provides", "conflicts" and "replaces"

TZ86 commented on 2016-03-27 07:11

I've added an option but generally it's recommended to use a clean chroot to prevent appearing problems like yours.

nous commented on 2016-03-24 10:37

1.10.8 now compiles silently against libaudit (from extra/audit) automatically, if found in the building host (found it in mine). As audit isn't in depends(), this broke things for people using unofficial repos providing dbus-nosystemd as openrc-eudev and arch-openrc. Would you please add '--disable-libaudit' in configure since CONFIG_AUDIT is disabled in the Arch kernel packages anyway? This also reduces the final package size by 80% (307K vs 1.5M in x86_64).

upgrade to 1.10.2 required

Mektub commented on 2014-05-15 17:01


thanks, ok now.

OrdinaryMagician commented on 2014-05-15 16:54

Simply remove dbus-nosystemd with -Rdd, update dbus, then reinstall dbus-nosystemd.

The PKGBUILD for this version isn't wrong, more like the other way around. It's just a small issue related to the previous package version using '=' instead of '>=' for the dependency check.

Mektub commented on 2014-05-15 15:19

I see dbus-nosystemd 1.8.2-1 is available, but if I try to update:

core is up to date
extra is up to date
community is up to date
multilib is up to date
archlinuxfr is up to date
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: Starting full system upgrade...
:: dbus-nosystemd: requires libdbus=1.8.0

I think there is something wrong with the line:

depends=('expat' 'coreutils' 'filesystem' 'shadow' "libdbus>=${pkgver}")


TZ86 commented on 2014-04-15 17:08

@Mr Green
Please show output of 'pacman -Q dbus-nosystemd'.

Mr Green commented on 2014-04-15 08:48

Having issues with dbus-daemon

:: Starting D-BUS system messagebus [BUSY] dbus-daemon: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Tue Apr 15 08:40:23 2014: [FAIL]

Even though systemd is not built in, any ideas on the problem?

artoo commented on 2014-03-27 10:45

Yeah, sorry for more update stuff, and thanks.
But these packages have the potential to break the system, if they don't get removed/updated properly.

TZ86 commented on 2014-03-27 04:56

Ugh, more updates… Okay, I'll add your packages to replaces/conflicts.

>Do you want to have the colord-eudev build?

No, I don't use it, and actually 23 packages is more than enough for me. :)

artoo commented on 2014-03-26 18:03

Two things,
if I let AUR people delete my packages, I'd would be probably good to implement a safe upgrade with replaces & conflicts. I don't know how many people use my builds.

Do you want to have the colord-eudev build?
I maintain all builds in a git repo anyway, so should I delete colord-eudev from AUR, or do you want it transferred to rename it?

artoo commented on 2014-03-26 16:30


That's very nice.

If you maintain these nosystemd packages anyway, I will ask for deletion of my *-eudev ones, and will only keep eudev-$version.

It gives some time for other stuff I wanted to do.

Thank you. :)

TZ86 commented on 2014-03-25 09:55

Now everything should be fine. I've also added "eudev-base" group and additional deps to my *-nosystemd packages. Tell me if I missed something.

>Another tiny thing, your kde-workspace-ck build needs libpulse to build properly.

I've already added warning to pkgbuild (see build()) but probably I should try to make it easer for a user.

artoo commented on 2014-03-24 18:15

It seems, we both would need to provide=dbus>=1.2.0
to get dbus-c++ binding to work.

artoo commented on 2014-03-24 18:00

The reason I say this, your package needs to be removed with ignoring deps.
I did this, and now I got error with my build complaining about a missing dbus-c++ dep. If I only knew, if the error is with my or your build now, lol.
I am instigating this currently, since I had to manually remove left over stuff from your package.

artoo commented on 2014-03-24 12:33

Yes, I did it with my dbus-eudev build, it works fine with openrc.

Btw, what d you think about merging our builds? I noticed, you just named them differently(*-nosystemd), and I just have a couple of optdepends additionally.

Another tiny thing, your kde-workspace-ck build needs libpulse to build properly.
Maybe make the pkgbuild depend on it so average user will succeed without looking for the wrong?

TZ86 commented on 2014-03-24 04:38

Do you mean make it dependant on libdbus from official repo?

artoo commented on 2014-03-23 21:02


rm -r "$pkgdir"/usr/include
rm -r "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/pkgconfig
rm -r "$pkgdir"/usr/lib/dbus-1.0/include


Lets you keep libdbus.

OrdinaryMagician commented on 2014-02-20 09:59

Oh, I didn't know that.

TZ86 commented on 2014-02-20 06:10

Fortunately libdbus part doesn't depend on systemd so you can use lib32-libdbus from official repos.

OrdinaryMagician commented on 2014-02-19 23:07

I'd like to have a lib32 of this too, if you don't mind.

moetunes commented on 2013-10-03 22:19

Had a go at using this today, the dbus that is built has lots of errors about missing libsystemd shared files.

r08 commented on 2013-06-11 06:23

Thank you very very much for this. Now I can run eudev-git and dbus wont bug me that libsystemd is missing.
You sir are my hero.
