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.

@cyberpunkrocker Thanks for pointing that out. I have some local issue with mounting binderfs, which I'm fixing on my system. Then I'll update the dependencies and the other points pointed out.

There are still 'lxc-git' in depends= and 'lxc' in makedepends=. Can't you make up your mind which one you want? (Just asking)

anbox launch --package=org.anbox.appmgr --component=org.anbox.appmgr.AppViewActivity [ 2021-07-10 15:31:04] [daemon.cpp:61@Run] [org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown] The name org.anbox was not provided by any .service files

In case someone else has been struggling with anbox giving the previous error, here's the solution:

Weird issue, weird solution, no-one seems to know why it happens or why the solution works... but it works!

I've mirrored this repo in and invited current maintainers to maintain it.

Open PRs there and once merged I can ping @ahmubashshir on telegram to roll it back to here. Or @cschmid can add @chaotic-aur as co-maintainer and we'll have a GitHub action to automatically do it...

I manually uninstalled lxc-git and reinstalled lxc 4.0.6 after installing the latest anbox-git. This allowed me to run the session manager again, but networking was broken and the fix described in no longer worked, giving the error 'Cannot find device "eth0"'. I assume this is because anbox-bridge no longer comes with anbox-git and needs to be running for those commands to work.

If the maintainers could please address the following issues in the next build, that would be very helpful:

  1. Set the lxc dependency to the correct version.
  2. Restore anbox-bridge functionality
  3. Fix the issue @JuniorJPDJ identified of anbox-git now reporting conflict with anbox-launchers-git
  4. Fix the issue @cyberpunkrocker identified of duplicate entries in depends and makedepends

I understand this is a lot to ask. Please let me know if any additional information would be helpful in getting this package updated.

By the way, in the current PKGBUILD there are duplicate entries in 'depends=' and 'makedepends='. AFAIK 'makedepends' should include only those dependencies which are needed in build time, but NOT in runtime - so no dependencies should never be in both. Please fix the PKGBUILD.

Last I checked Anbox didn't work with the latest LXC: but I didn't test it after it upgraded to 0.4.9 (as I kept lxc-git installed), but if it works then the lxc-git part of the patch can be reverted...

cyberpunkrocker commented on 2021-07-01 10:59

I was wondering about the 'lxc-git' dependency, too, so I replaced 'lxc-git' with 'lxc' in the PKGBUILD, replaced lxc-git package with the latest lxc, and rebuilt anbox-git. Builds and works fine, so far, so it seems that 'lxc-git' dependency is a bogus. Can others test this, too?

simona commented on 2021-07-01 10:20

lxcfs accept only lxc and not lxcf-git :-(

JuniorJPDJ commented on 2021-07-01 03:38

Also: why does it depend on lxc-git instead of lxc?
