OK yes it looks like the default for ssldir is now $confdir/ssl. I would change the ssldir location in your puppet.conf, or create and give permissions on that directory if that's where you want to have it.

I tried some Java version tests today. I noticed that the following selection is available when installing puppetserver when no java is installed. Didn't notice this before when I had jdk8-openjdk package already installed:

" :: There are 4 providers available for java-runtime-headless: :: Repository extra 1) jre10-openjdk-headless 2) jre7-openjdk-headless 3) jre8-openjdk-headless 4) jre9-openjdk-headless

Enter a number (default=1): "

For me puppetserver starts only when I select 3 (jre8). Options 1 and 4 result in hanging startup of puppetserver (100% CPU usage, infinite loop?). I've not tried jre7. Just wanted to point this out as the default selection leads to inoperable system. Java 11 (LTS?) will be released soon but I'n not sure about the current status of LTS releases, however, are they still free or not.

Problem solved. Updating gem gettext-setup to 0.28 fixed the error with translation_repositories.

Today I received the following updates:
facter-3.9.2-1 hiera-3.4.2-1 puppet-5.3.2-1

After this I started to get the following error from server:
Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 500 on SERVER: Server Error: undefined method `translation_repositories' for GettextSetup:Module on node

"Not able to start puppetserver after reboot" was my error (/var/log on tmpfs). Puppetserver will hang without errors if it doesn't find its directory from /var/log. However being now a known issue this is now quite minor at least for me.

When installing puppetserver-2.7.2.tar.gz with "yaourt -S puppetserver":

- Puppet server has to be reinstalled (yaourt -R puppetserver, yaourt -S puppetserver) every time puppetserver service is stopped by systemctl.
- If the service is not reinstalled, java processes are trying to start but never finish (100% usage in every CPU core), if it is reinstalled, everything works fine
- "WARNING: backup entry file not in package : etc/puppetlabs/puppetserver/bootstrap.cfg"
- "Can't translate pathname 'opt/puppetlabs/server/data/puppetserver/vendored-jruby-gems/gems/hocon-1.1.3/spec/fixtures/test_utils/resources/ᚠᛇᚻ.conf' to UTF-8"
- "warning: directory permissions differ on /opt/puppetlabs/server/data/puppetserver/jruby-gems/
filesystem: 770 package: 755"

Which one of these you think belong to Puppetlabs and which one to AUR maintainers?

It seems there are serious glitches when running this package. Do you think these belong to AUR maintainers or to Puppetlabs?

I'm not using this any more, disowning

Just had a bit of time to re-think your suggestion and test it. java-runtime-headless is now the dependency.

Oh wait, there is one "xorg-xset". Well only "java-environment" is required, so you are free to pick what you want.

jsteel commented on 2016-02-24 15:51

It is assumed (well, documented on the wiki) that you have base and base-devel installed. Also I see no xorg packages pulled in with jdk8-openjdk.
