I cherry picked the patch to stable-1.24. There are a few other patches there that might be interesting and aren't (yet) in a release:

I'll have to test it tomorrow, as the patch does not seem to apply cleanly to 1.24.4 and I don't have time right now to look into it.

Can you let me know if this patch works? I've tried to test it as much as I can without actually uninstalling sshd.

rwmjones commented on 2021-06-05 09:11

Fair point, let me see if I can make a patch to fix that.

Unfortunately these steps are not enough as the Makefile will also try to create the ssh-keys for testing. These need ssh-keygen installed. The key generation is gated on HAVE_SSH which checks if libssh is present. In Arch the libssh package does not include the ssh-keygen tool.

For now I'll add openssh as a dependency for nbdkit and look for a proper solution in the coming days. The ssh-keygen detection should also be part of nbdkit proper IMO.

I still think it would be easier to disable the test that needs openssh, see my earlier comment:

Please add missing 'openssh' to the checkpdepends=()

the package should probably depend on qemu-headless (which qemu also provides)

FWIW we disable libguestfs- and qemu-based tests on non-x86-64 in Fedora using this bit of sed magic:

I updated this package to the latest release. Currently the tests are broken, which should be fixed with a new libguestfs version in the arch repos.
