@rafaelff I see. I wasn't aware that /run itself is forbidden in official packages. I do think /var/run is better than /var then since it is an actual tmpfs just like /run. I don't know if there are other options. In any case, thanks for taking the time to respond! And maintaining the package too :P

@JstKddng: Are you able to confirm it doesn't work in an Arch Linux ARM instance? I don't have a ARM computer to be sure. For the record, indeed the Production Notes on arm64 states armv8.2-A or later micro-architecture is required for MongoDB (since docs version 4.4).

hey, is it worth using the aarch64 binaries if they are only compatible with armv8.2? archlinuxarm doesn't support cpus with that architecture afaik.

My main reason for not using /run is that it's strictly forbidden for packages, according to Asked a Arch Developer the reason for this rule, and he told me "retro-compatibility" because "other distros use pacman as well".

Besides, It seems the downloaded tarball has already /var/run set so I might remove this sed line.

Actually, /var/run is the legacy path as I understand it. The motivation behind introducing /run was to be able to mount it early before /var is available. The commit you point to says:

"Optionally rewrites lines referencing /var/run/, to use /run/ instead."

/var/run is currently a symlink that resolves to /run on my system, and on other distros too as far as I know.

@snale systemd considers /run a legacy tmpfile path and recomends /var/run. See warning implemented for systemd 239 in

Hey, I was wondering, wouldn't it be better to use /run instead of /var for the systemd service PID file? /var/run is a tmpfs originally too whereas /var is not, I think.

Updated to 6.0.0. Those willing to stick with 5.x versions, check mongodb50-bin

@flying-sheep can you provide it?

Hi, I don’t want mongodb to start until I need it. Is it possible to add a mongodb.socket file for systemd?
