how do you get r291?

I don't have much idea. I actually remember being confused when I bumped to r288, because I thought I would be getting version with the issue resolved and r288 was earlier version than that. I didn't pay much attention, so I don't have enough information to provide.

These are the versions I've had so far according to /var/log/pacman.log:

 - r286.1783768-1 (210320)
 - r288.714b79f-1 (210425)
 - r291.4669dde-1 (210509)
 - r292.216f2f5-1 (210511)

P.S. Much appreciated to whoever structured PKGBUILD in such way :D

EDIT: format
EDIT2: Now that I look into upstream git log, it doesn't seem like much has happened with this package regarding crashes. I guess possibly some combinations of update and crostini reboot did it? Anyways, the point was that you could bump the revision. You can totally disregard my mumbles.

@EuphoricCatface Thanks for the heads up! I re-installed the package and I now have it as

cros-container-guest-tools-git r282.ebca6be-1
how do you get r291?

All AUR packages I've had before all pointed to a particular release or version as the source. I think this AUR package points to the latest commit, at least that's how I understand it looking at the PKGBUILD.

Just a friendly tip:

Re-install the package from time to time even though AUR version number doesn't bump. Apparently the package can update to latest git revision (sorry if that's obvious. I would love to know if it's natural for all -git packages).

I was suffering from so many random failed to mount /newroot/proc and pipe broken errors, which I assumed OoM. It was present in r286 (retrieved 210320) and r288 (retrieved 210425), and now r291 (retrieved today) seems to have solved it.

Package needs a new active maintainer. I'm no longer using ChromeOS devices or supporting their ecosystem after my laptop was bricked by an update.

Good luck.

It looks like it sufficient to add export XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=/run/user/$(id -u) to my .zshrc

A fully updated Arch with the latest cros-container-guest-tools-git still works for me on Chrome OS Version 86.0.4240.112 on the HP Chromebook X2

Well, this is suboptimal timing. Due to sudden hardware failure, my Pixelbook is out for repair (see: ). I was also having trouble with my Arch container on Chrome OS versions 86-87 before the failure occurred. I don't have the means right now to troubleshoot. I'm open to suggestions on how to proceed.

@duhdugg The latest Arch upgrade just broke crostini entirely. I can't figure out why.

xaseron@arch ~ % systemctl --user status Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory

It maybe related to logind. As the XDG/DBUS environment variables are not set.

@Xaseron Manual action requirements for pulseaudio are documented in cros-container-guest-tools.install and this is output to the console when the package is installed.

Xaseron commented on 2020-10-05 10:14

@duhdugg Pulseaudio does not work out of the box. I had to manually create a symlink to and daemon.conf to the skel directory. What would be the best way to fix this for new users?
