Hello, the issue that made daemon mode crash without stdin has been resolved, it is possible to make a systemd unit now.

Also thanks for making this pkgbuild btw, i use it myself too its been handy!

Thank you. I will wait for the linked issue to be resolved first as it is unusable as a systemd unit in the current state.

Hi cgirard

I corrected those two things. I added you as co-maintainer. You are free to create a system unit here, if you'd like to.

I had to correct two things to make this PKGBUILD works:

  • Add python-setuptools as a makedeps
  • Correct the package function with python install --root="$pkgdir" --optimize=1


Additionally, could you consider creating a System unit as well (like mpd which provides a User and a System unit). This would be great in a server scenario where mpd is not run by a logged in user. => edit: This does not work at the moment, see:

This has been switched to python3:

The python dependencies should be changed to python2 dependencies (python2 and python2-mpd2)

That also means changing python to python2 from build() and package()
