Isn't fxa-local-dev the best available package?

I can't get this to run as any other user, it will only work as root. Anyone know what I am doing wrong?

I am getting an error on package installation:

/tmp/alpm_hLLufc/.INSTALL: line 7: systemd-tmpfiles: command not found
error: command failed to execute correctly

Anyone else getting this?

No, the files in /opt/mozilla-firefox-sync-server should not be owned by the ffsync user.
The error you have here is the result of running it as root in the first place. When run as root, it created those .pyc files that are not part of the package and it cannot use/delete/change them now that you have switched back to running with another user.
I suggest that you delete those files, either by reinstalling the package clean or by hand.
May this serve as a reminder that running something as root is never the solution when something fails.

I'm cheking the output of strace ('strace ./local/bin/gunicorn --paste syncserver.ini'), and I see denied permissions on unlink() calls like:

unlink("/opt/mozilla-firefox-sync-server/local/lib/python2.7/site.pyc") = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)

Should the /opt/mozilla-firefox-sync-server be owned by the ffsync user?

Here I am (wasn't able to use the same account for AUR4).

So, even with this package (from ARU4), the 'sudo systemctl start ffsync' doesn't work.

Here is the detail of 'systemctl status ffsync' :

Is it an hint for you ?

Thanks for your tip, i will try to find why it connot be run by the ffsync user.

For virtualenv, maybe you could change the Makefile line in prepare()?

VIRTUALENV = virtualenv2 --python=$(SYSTEMPYTHON)

Siosm commented on 2015-01-19 10:47

I'll have a look at the exact python version and depedencies required to run ffsync. I can't just replace python-virtualenv by python-virtualenv2 because the Makefile explicitly calls python-virtualenv. Maybe I should had python2 as deps.

Running ffsync as root as you suggest in your second comment is really bad idea. You should try to understand what problem in your setup is preventing ffsync to work before blindly running it as root.
