On systemd version 250.r328.gadc1b76c30, the patch file 0003-PARTIAL-REVERT-commit-tree-wide-replace-strverscmp-and-str_verscmp-with-strverscmp_improved.patch fails on the second hunk in prepare():

Thanks for a reminder, Dylan14. I actually already did update locally, just forgot to push it.

Dylan14 commented on 2022-01-13 22:06 (UTC)

hwids needs to be replaced with hwdata as hwids has been removed from the repos.

Dylan14 commented on 2021-10-24 15:15 (UTC)

In building the latest revision of systemd, it appears that legacy.conf no longer exists, and the packaging fails.

yurikoles commented on 2021-08-01 08:25 (UTC)


Thanks, fixed. In fact, splash-arch.bmp is too large for AUR :(

whynothugo commented on 2021-07-31 14:49 (UTC)

Commenting out the line regarding legacy.conf works for me.

I'm not sure why that file is installed separately, but it doesn't seem to be needed for me.

whynothugo commented on 2021-07-31 14:36 (UTC)

URL for splash-arch.bmp is out-of-date; is gone. This URL works for now:

I'd recommend moving the file into this repository until the git migration is finalised though.

whynothugo commented on 2021-07-31 11:02 (UTC)

Oh, having a look at 6fe23ff31c02c7e9607edd0df819e59da5d49abc, it seems that changed the behaviour.

legacy.conf was previously just a file that was copied as-is. Now the file is templated to optionally include extra lines, and is only built when using SYSV_COMPAT.

Build fail on current main:

Building with extra-x86_64-build also fails with the same error.

splash-arch.bmp is failing validity check

yurikoles commented on 2021-06-22 20:20 (UTC)

Thanks @Dylan,

I actually made the same workaround locally, but forgot to push my changes.

Dylan14 commented on 2021-06-20 01:37 (UTC)

The 0001-Use-Arch-Linux-device-access-groups.patch as provided breaks with systemd-git 249.rc1 as we now have a tty group in Here is a working patch:

dr460nf1r3 commented on 2021-03-15 21:22 (UTC)

@Dylan14 nice, good work! We have this package compiled over at Chaotic-AUR if you are interested.

Dylan14 commented on 2021-03-14 05:34 (UTC)

@dr460nfir3 - See here for a working patch:

intgr commented on 2020-08-23 19:19 (UTC)

Sorry, when I use makepkg --check there are no failures. I was using rua before, it must be rua's sandbox feature that is interfering with tests.

yurikoles commented on 2020-08-23 18:35 (UTC)

I have lots of tests failing here. Is it safe to skip tests, is it known why they might be failing? I don't want a buggy systemd.

Me too. As always, you are better to consult upstream repo on those fails. As I see they aren't CI on ArchLinux, mostly on Ubuntu 18.04 aka bionic and Fedora.

From my experience running this package on bleeding-edge master with --nocheck is mostly error-free.

telinit and runlevel are no longer built

0001-Use-Arch-Linux-device-access-groups.patch fails to apply because the directory "rules" is now "rules.d"

yurikoles commented on 2019-08-01 05:42 (UTC)

Hi @nl6720,

I had fixed, thanks for report.

nl6720 commented on 2019-07-30 08:43 (UTC)

/usr/share/factory/etc/issue conflicts with the file provided by the filesystem package.

yurikoles commented on 2018-11-25 09:25 (UTC)

@gdamjan, it's semi-automatic, I have a script that updates all my packages periodically.

gdamjan commented on 2018-11-24 19:46 (UTC)

is there any real reason to bump the package version 10 times in the past 10 days? with no changes in the content at all.

yurikoles commented on 2018-10-03 16:58 (UTC)

Hi @kerberizer!

I had tried removing ccache, since I have already !ccache in makepkg.conf, and still see no issues. Seems to be problem in your local setup. Please try to build in clean chroot as described in Arch Wiki.

yurikoles commented on 2018-10-03 16:37 (UTC)

Hi @falconindy!

Good catch, it was backported from official package, see, but I didn't ported this change in call to arch-meson below.

falconindy commented on 2018-10-03 15:20 (UTC)

For the past 2 months this package hasn't built with any of the options defined in _meson_options:

You're expanding meson_options after defining _meson_options. Good job making useless stylistic changes that make backporting changes from the repo harder.

kerberizer commented on 2018-09-29 17:08 (UTC)

Um, I've already provided in my comment a link to the open issue upstream. It's from January and has seen almost zero activity, so I think it's better to fix the PKGBUILD.

yurikoles commented on 2018-09-29 13:39 (UTC)

Hi @kerberizer!

Please report it upstream. I had explicitly specified !ccache !distcc in PKGBUILD,, due to problems with build that I had. I had also filled bug:

kerberizer commented on 2018-09-29 08:24 (UTC)

After a recent commit,[1] the build would break with src/boot/efi/ ERROR: Program or command 'ccache cc' not found or not executable. Unfortunately, Meson auto-detects ccache regardless of the !ccache option to makepkg.[2][3] Meson recommends in such cases to explicitly set CC. Indeed, simply adding export CC=gcc (thus emulating the behaviour before that commit) before running meson build fixes the problem.

Hi, @misc!

I had fixed it by removing sysvcompat and adding it to conflicts.

misc commented on 2018-03-03 03:07 (UTC)

Seems sysvcompat is conflicting now after:

tjackson commented on 2017-08-20 00:54 (UTC)

This package seems to work now, thanks.

yurikoles commented on 2017-08-08 20:23 (UTC)

I'm trying to port changes from Arch, here is my work: The new version doesn't work. @graysky Could you help me?

graysky commented on 2017-08-08 18:11 (UTC)

This PKGBUILD is out-of-sync with Arch upstream. Do not build.

the official package has some additional pacman hooks now

yurikoles commented on 2016-12-02 19:27 (UTC)

I have disowned this package, you are now free do adopt it.
