I updated to 1.6.2.

Please note: From now on, etherpad-lite is relying on systemd-tmpfiles and systemd-sysusers and the setting of a dynamic StateDirectory according to its service file. The scripts delivered by upstream are no longer run.

These new features make the package more secure, but the new way of installing it also renders its content static (i.e. the installation of plugins is currently not possible, as the installation folder is now owned by root).

Before the included npm package had the possibility to install all over the install directory, leading to folders and files not taken care of or cleaned up by pacman.

Although the new state is somewhat unfortunate, I hope you can appreciate it nonetheless from a viewpoint of this now being a "clean(er) install".

I referred to upstream about the changes to maybe inspire a change in the way plugins should be installed to a dedicated (settable) directory.

The way etherpad-lite is installed now is still far from being perfect.

I needed to downgrade to icu 56 (57 is the current version). After this the etherpad service started just fine.

@twiggers can you paste me the output of $(pacman -Qen) please? I cannot reproduce your issue.

Sad to hear that twiggers, gonne try this on an freshly installed system and report back to you.

Etherpad won't start for me with this error: error: could not load library "/usr/lib/postgresql/plpgsql.so": /usr/lib/postgresql/plpgsql.so: undefined symbol: DatumIsReadWriteExpandedObject

Update released, please note that you can't install the new package without updating nodejs first. So update nodejs without dependecy-check and upgrade etherpad-lite after this, or remove and reinstall etherpad-lite.

would be great not to have to --ignore nodejs anymore :-P

@RubenKelevra: Any particular reason, why you're ignoring my patch for nodejs > 5?

@schimicata: Don't start it as your own user or even as root, if you like your system intact. The service starts etherpad-lite as the user etherpad for a reason.
Please follow the output of your journal with "journalctl -f -u etherpad-lite" while starting/stopping/restarting the service.
Your posted output is not complete and doesn't show the initial error.
