What I meant was that you should completely remove any mention of 'openrc' from the provides and conflicts arrays. Like so (delete conflicts array altogether):

provides=('' 'init-rc' '' 'svc-manager')
# delete this line: conflicts=('openrc-git')

The reason is simple: a package named foo already:

  • provides foo,
  • satisfies other packages that depend on foo,
  • and conflicts with other packages named foo.

Only one installed version of foo can exist on a system at a time.

Declaring that the package foo provides foo is not just meaningles, but it confuses the AUR database and AUR helpers, making it appear that this one package is actually two instances of packages that provide foo.

Please kindly remove 'openrc' from provides and conflicts.

A package should not provide itself and conflict with itself. XD

And this makes this package listed twice on AURweb when something depends on 'openrc'.

Thanks! I had to remove a backslash from get_noadjfile() in /etc/openrc/init.d/hwclock to suppress a grep warning.

I just pushed an update to the latest version (0.45.2). Let me know if you run into any issue.

Not interested in comaintaining as I haven't used openrc in a long time.

I am still watching openrc issues on github and may comment occasionally .

@lone_wolf want to be added as a comaintainer of this package?

Once I publish 0.42.1 PKGBUILD it will have that, but there is still much to do before I upload that.

See my wiki user page[1] and forum thread[2] for more info.

Please port openrc-sysvinit to optional dependencies. Because from version 0.25 openrc has its own initialization system "init=/usr/bin/openrc-init" and works fine without inittab and even parallel with systemd

Updated to 0.38.1 .

When booting with systemd/libsystemd 239.0-2 there are some problems on my system

Dbus takes a long time to start, avahi-daemon fails. Console login times out, login with autostarting X does wpork, but i also very slow. I'm ignoring systemd & libsystemd updates for now, while trying to figure out what's wrong.

If there are still people using this besides me, please post your results with systemd 239 & openrc .
