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?

gdamjan commented on 2016-06-26 01:06

thanks @rafaelsoaresbr

I'll try it soon.

Again, about /etc/systemd/system/wokd.service.d/kimchi.conf

1) since it's a packaged file it probably needs to go to /usr/lib/systemd/system/
2) Requires=wokd.service and After=wokd.service don't make sense, since the kimchi.conf drop-in extends the same wokd.service file. wokd shouldn't depend on itself.

Hello gdamjan,

I've made a mistake, the package wok available here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wok/ is not the same I've created here https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wok-git/

So, I'm going to rename my package to wokd, until this, please test my another packages wok-git, ginger-base-git, ginger-git and kimchi-git

They worked for me.

EDIT:

I've just updated this package:
There are four packages:
wokd, ginger-base, ginger and kimchi
ginger isn't maintained by me and is out-of-date.

You can use the -git packages until ginger gets updated.

EDIT 2:

Kimchi 2.2.0 is out, it only requires wokd and ginger-base. ginger is still out-of-date.

gdamjan commented on 2016-06-23 15:53

What's the idea behind the drop-in /etc/systemd/system/wokd.service.d/kimchi.conf ?
There is no wokd.service in the wokd package. Also the After=/Requires= wokd.service in a drop-in for wokd.service makes no sense.
