Hello @lfnister,

did you try rebuilding the cvmfs package? It should then link against the new protobuf library.

Ifnister commented on 2021-05-23 06:21

I get this error when trying to mount and then it fails:

CernVM-FS: running with credentials 969:969
CernVM-FS: loading Fuse module... failed to load cvmfs library, tried: './' '/usr/lib/' '/usr/lib64/'
./ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

There is only on my system.

@nikoladze Thanks for the report, I have pushed this as a (temporary) fix to AUR. It might be possible that you have to uninstall the system leveldb for cvmfs to pick up its own, I'm not sure.

I had some issues with the leveldb dependency after some recent update (got undefined symbol: _ZTIN7leveldb10EnvWrapperE). Adding leveldb back to the externals (in externals.patch) made it work again.

@i.further I think the /etc/auto.cvmfs file is only necessary if you want to use autofs. Is that what you want to do? As recommended in the post install message, systemd.automount seems to be working much more reliably:

In any case, the file still exists at /usr/lib/cvmfs/auto.cvmfs. The cvmfs installation does not seem to add the symlink to /etc automatically, so I'm not sure whether we should do it in the PKGBUILD either?

Hi it misses the /etc/auto.cvmfs

Thanks for the suggestion @ryuwd. This causes a lot of unused-variable warnings during compilation due to assert statements being optimised out, but I think it's still a change worth having. I've pushed this to the PKGBUILD now.

Hi, and thank you for providing this package. It works well.

I noticed in a recent install that CVMFS was not being compiled with optimisation (_FORTIFY_SOURCE warnings). CMake doesn't compile with optimisation as default, so I edited the PKGBUILD, and added this option to the CMake command in build():


which added the desired optimisation flags when building. I wondered if this perhaps worth adding to the package?

Cheers, Ryun
