Hi again. I've made a dummy package called systemd-dummy and moved the systemd provides into that. That way it doesn't conflict with the systemd-shim package.

Leaving this here in case you might want to do something similar.

Eh. It does install without eudev-systemdcompat :)
Also libsystemd-standalone now also provides systemd and libsystemd. Now our packages are interchangeable :)

eudev-1.9 does not have a libsystemd-eudevcompat depend.

But, it won't install without a new eudev-systemdcompat.

I removed from eudev any systemd or libsystemd provides, as this is provided by the new eudev-systemdcompat package.
In other words, the dependency order changed.

But that's just some of my thoughts on the eudev dependencies.

I'd be ok with mantaining systemd-eudevcompat if you're not up to it.

The libsystemd-eudevcompat port is pretty awkward because every time Arch updates the main libsystemd package, it becomes uninstallable without manually updating the pkgbuild.
Which means you can't just <arurwrapper> -S eudev.

I actually build your eudev without the dependency and have libsystemd-standalone as an explicitly installed package. I don't see a single good reason for it to be a hard dependency because some people actually rebuild their packages to remove the systemd dependency.

Would you be interested to maintain the libsystemd-eudevcompat build?

I have enough packages to maintain, just uploaded it finally to AUR.

Ah, yours guts the binary package. That works too :)

It is no hard dependency, you could simply remove it from depends, but you will need additional nosystemd packages.

Try it, you need no additional onsystemd packages with the libsystemd-eudevcompat.
It just installs some systemd libraries, so eg dbus will run without installing dbus-nosystemd.
With this setup, you only need eudev installed(plus depends).
Won't change it, it is also in manjaro repo.

Could you please make libsystemd an optional dependency? Things using it can break for people who don't use systemd (everyone with this package installed).
