2.36 is the first release with AppArmor enabled by default on Arch.

If you do not have AppArmor enabled at boot there should be no functional changes visible.

If you wish to use snaps with Apparmor, first make sure that Apparmor is enabled during boot, see for details. After upgrading the package, you need to do the following steps:

  • Reload the profiles: systemctl restart apparmor.service
  • Restart snapd: systemctl restart snapd.service
  • Load profiles for snaps: systemctl enable --now snapd.apparmor.service

Hi. Ever since end of May 2019, snappy daemon fails to start on my system (with or without apparmor). This is what I see in the output of

$ sudo journalctl -u snapd.service
cannot run daemon: state startup errors: [cannot obtain snap-seccomp version information: invalid format of version-info: "6f33567a6d5533534e6273424138556e5a7757582f654153436e383650336a61346537544b673975482f565059786473696e77496b3275724a39755f6d6d2f48314d544863384d51344c417a4c387845717976 2.4.1 8c73f36d3de1f71977107bf6687514f16787f639058b4db4c67b28dfdb2fd3af bpf-actlog"]

@malathion is there anything in dmesg that would suggest AppArmor blocked it? Anything in journalctl -u snapd? Does uname -r list the same kernel version as reported by pacman -Q linux?

$ sudo snap install <thing>

@landaro do you have a log perhaps? Are you sure this isn't your AUR helper? There's no dependency on netcat (either variant), so I'm not sure how you got there. It builds and installs just fine if nc isn't available.

landaro commented on 2019-10-17 08:50

I believe there might be a missing dependency on netcat with this package. My initial installation attempt failed with a command not found: nc. Manually installing one of the providers for nc fixed the problem, though.

Thanks for fixing! Yes, GO111MODULES was set to on. I've disabled it (or rather, put it to the default behaviour of auto).

Thank you for being responsive :-)


bboozzoo commented on 2019-10-05 13:27

@dharrigan that's a bit surprising, snapd does not use go.mod. Is it possible that you have GO111MODULE=on in your environment?

Edit: yeah, I was able to reproduce this problem by setting GO111MODULE=on in my environment. I've pushed an update.

Getting build errors when attempting to install snapd (or snapd-git). Here's the output:

@bboozzoo remmina was the application that had no fonts, but also snap store was missing fonts also.

bboozzoo commented on 2019-10-01 14:24

@homelessuser which snap had the fonts rendered incorrectly in your case?
