Guys, please don't flag this package because of some other pkgbuilds, specially not if
any pkgbuild providing anbox-image fails to build, contact the maintainer of that faulty pkgbuild.

And remember, this is AUR(Arch User Repository), it doesn't provide any prebuilt package,
it only provides PKGBUILDs(recipe for building libalpm package).
You MUST rebuild the package yourself when the dependency gets soname bump
(when it complains about missing library).

WARNING: Before you go ahead and install Anbox on your system, please keep in mind that Anbox is not yet stable. Not every feature is working well yet. You will find bugs, see crashes and unexpected problems. As this is a Git package, patches should go upstream as they will not be bundled with the package.

@tsangares: This is an issue in the linux-zen-anbox package, as it shouldn't include that file. I am not sure what the linux-zen-anbox package does in addition to the linux-zen one (maybe it is obsolete?). If you install Anbox for the first time, I recommend following the wiki ( setting it up using the linux-zen kernel as a starting point, as it is pre-built, and the the required kernel modules are compiled into out of the box there already.

This package is in conflict with a file from linux-zen-anbox.

anbox-git: /usr/lib/systemd/system/dev-binderfs.mount exists in filesystem (owned by linux-zen-anbox)

Not exactly sure which package I should be bringing this to. But if this packages checks to see if it exists first, that would be nice.

A warning occurs when starting systemd-networkd:

systemd-networkd[270]: /usr/lib/systemd/network/ IPMasquerade=yes is deprecated, and it is handled as "ipv4" instead of "both". Please use "ipv4" or "both".

@PedroHLC I think that's a great idea. I have added @chaotic-aur to the maintainer list

@ssdjaggi: Did you manage to install the package by following the wiki as suggested by @Anty0?

Anty0 commented on 2021-07-23 08:10


Hope it helps. :)

@ahmubashshir about point 2: I'm using x11 and linux-zen kernel, not wayland. All I can say that I've had that dbus issue with anbox for several days now, and the only solution I've found which have worked is setting EGL_PLATFORM=x11 before starting anbox-container-manager.service, just like described in the thread...

C_Schmidpeter commented on 2021-07-10 17:32

In case others experience that issue too: I've recently updated to linux-xanmod-anbox 5.12.15-1, but that seems to have caused mounting binderfs to fail. Running with linux-zen 5.12.15.zen1-1 now and it mounts normally again.

@cyberpunkrocker, about
1, we'll be sticking with lxc-git until the next revision bump.
2, This solution is only for wayland session, if your kernel doesn't have android support, this won't work.
3, Are you even a contributor of anbox upstream? read this and this. And afaik, lxc==4.0.9 was released before merging this. so only lxc-git worked when I tested, and they still didn't bump revision

@JuniorJPDJ, about
1, see @cyberpunkrocker/3
2, anbox upstream now provides the functionality provided by anbox-launchers-git, in #1639 and #1753, and these conflicts with anbox-launchers.

@emceebois, about this comment,
1. See @cyberpunkrocker/1.
2. You need to enable systemd-networkd to get networking in anbox. And sometimes it doesn't work with persistent naming of interfaces enabled, and if you didn't know, 'eth0' will only appear if you disable persistent naming of interfaces, with persistent naming, you'll get 'enpXsY' or something like that.
3. See @JuniorJPDJ/2.
4. See 1.

anbox-git compiles successfully with lxc, but the session manager dumps core...
