I overlooked one thing. You may also want to add another line to tmpfiles-openvpn3.conf to explicitly create the /var/lib/openvpn3 directory before creating /var/lib/openvpn3/configs. If you use my patch as is, the /var/lib/openvpn3/configs is created with 0755 permissions as expected, but the /var/lib/openvpn3 is 0750 for some reason, so not world-readable. In a Debian installation using the project's official APT source these directories are created with 0755 permissions.

tmpfiles-openvpn3.conf should look like this:

d /var/lib/openvpn3 0755 openvpn openvpn
d /var/lib/openvpn3/configs 0755 openvpn openvpn

Hi @bhyoo, I had to modify this AUR to make it work on my machine. Maybe it was a user error but somehow the /var/lib/openvpn3 directory got created by the root user instead of openvpn so openvpn-service-configmgr and openvpn-service-sessionmgr couldn't start, ultimately crashing with DBusProxyAccessDeniedException.

To fix this I've added a configuration for /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d to create this directory with the correct ownership beforehand. Below is the full patch, hopefully it's not too much for a comment.

@campfireman You should not include base-devel into makedepends.

After upgrading to kernel 5.18.14, I had to rebuild this package. It was throwing an error for me when trying to initiate a session: ERROR Failed preparing proxy: Error calling StartServiceByName for net.openvpn.v3.sessions: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 127

The solution (for me) was to remove the source directory with rm -rf ~/.cache/paru/clone/openvpn3

Next, paru -S openvpn3 got me back in business. Hope this can help someone else if they run into the same.

Had to install automake and pkg-config to make compilation work. Is the problem on my side or do these need to be added as dependencies?

tuxiano commented on 2022-05-11 13:27 (UTC)

Thanks @ribugent that fix totally worked!.

eathtespagheti commented on 2022-04-26 09:06 (UTC)

@bhyoo just tested, it still uses pushd and therefore fails when launching commands via dash, maybe the solution could be to add bash as a build dependency and run all the commands with bash -c

bhyoo commented on 2022-04-25 14:29 (UTC)

@ribugent @pkulak @eathtespagheti @rahulmb Updated dependencies and build script. Thanks for notification!

@eathtespagheti Could you test dash compatibility?

campanari commented on 2022-04-25 11:49 (UTC)

thanks @ribugent

That worked for me too.

ribugent commented on 2022-03-29 11:12 (UTC)

In my case, I've fixed it by patching the source code via pkgbuild
