@peterpan4 Thanks for the hint, but I think it is preferable to let users enable the network socket explicitly if they need it.

Many might prefer the -l option so as to disable remote access and only allow local access to the socket.

ExecStart=/usr/bin/pigpiod -l

@crodjer: thanks for the headsup! Upstream changed the service type from "simple" to "forking", which made this change necessary.

Attention: pigpiod is now also run with the -k (disable socket interface) by default for security reasons. To enable it, run systemctl edit pigpiod and put the following in /etc/systemd/system/pigpiod.service.d/override.conf (your default editor will automatically open this file for editing):


This overrides the command to start pigpiod and removes the -k option.

Please remove the line:

 sed -e 's|/usr/bin/pigpiod|/usr/bin/pigpiod -g|' -i util/pigpiod.service

This is causing the service to be stuck. pigpiod loads as a daemon by default. Adding -g foregrounds it.

@Vlou: Please report this upstream:

I just installed this package on my Raspberry Pi 3B+ running the AArch64 kernel, and the pigpiod daemon won't launch (segmentation fault) :

Details about my installation of archlinux arm : Linux rpi1 5.8.0-1-ARCH #1 SMP Sun Aug 9 00:03:44 UTC 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Did anyone face this issue ?

EDIT : By compiling with the aarch64user branch, this problem is gone. But there is another, which is described here : But the kernel parameters don't fix the issue for me...

EDIT 2 : Using the raspberry kernel instead of the mainline one ( ),pigpiod works without problems with this package !

AstroFloyd commented on 2019-08-30 10:04 (UTC)

Could you please add 'armv7h' to the architecture?

SpotlightKid commented on 2018-09-29 11:14 (UTC)

@codeworkx: Done.

codeworkx commented on 2018-09-29 10:29 (UTC)

Please add 'aarch64' architecture for Raspberry Pi 3+ running with AArch64 kernel.
