ebtables, dnsmasq & bridge-utils have been removed as dependencies. As stated in the libvirt wiki (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Libvirt) these packages are optional, but required for NAT (ebtables), DHCP (dnsmasq) and bridged networking (bridge-utils). The default libvirt network (which kimchi uses by default) is NAT/DHCP so for this to work OOTB users will want to install ebtables & dnsmasq.

@vanyasem - Thanks - fixed.

The package should depend on python2-ethtool, not python-ethtool

Just adopted the kimchi project packages and am updating.

I can confirm that kimchi works with qemu-headless. That being said, libguestfs also depends on qemu, so without it being updated to use qemu-headless (it works, too), we'll still have to either edit the PKGBUILD, or install the full version of qemu.

I've installed it on a headless system too. Please let me know if it will work with qemu-headless

Is there a reason why qemu is a dependency and not qemu-headless. (not if it's possible to provide alternatives for a dependency in PKGBUILD)
I'm trying to install this package on a headless server. I don't need all the junk that comes with qemu.

@gdamjan
I've had problems when running the server without those fonts installed.
I'm trying to lower the number of dependencies (specially the ones available on AUR).
So, do you suggest remove the drop-in and let the user do the work? (I've placed the dronp-in in /usr/lib/systemd/system/wokd.service.d/kimchi.conf)

Edit:
So we have some options:
1 - remove the drop-in file, since it only adds a Require/Wants
2 - place the drop-in at /usr/lib/systemd/system/wokd.service.d/kimchi.conf (good practice?)
3 - Merge wokd, ginger-base and kimchi packages into kimchi

@rafaelsoaresbr
no need to copy the .unit file, that's a drop-in
https://coreos.com/os/docs/latest/using-systemd-drop-in-units.html

I'll have to use the software a bit more to check on those font dependencies.

rafaelsoaresbr commented on 2016-06-26 12:28

Should it contain only this?

[Unit]
Wants=libvirtd.service
After=libvirtd.service

[Service]
Nice=0
PrivateTmp=no


And user should manually copy the desired config file?

Another question, upstream devs says ttf-font-awesome and ttf-opensans to be installed, are there any other packages in the official repo that provides these?
