in the pkgbuild the arch is set to x86_64, but i have just confirmed it builds fine in i686. could you consider adding the i686 architecture in the pkgbuild, for all the archlinux32 users out there?

In your optdepends you write 'iceberg-git: a QT {etc}'.

Would you be able to change that product name to 'Qt', QT stands for QuickTime. Qt is the name of the graphics toolkit :)

Hm, this currently doesn't build.

checking for lzo1x_1_compress in -llzo2... no
configure: error: Could not find lzo2 library - please install lzo-devel

The chown icecc:icecc ${ICECREAM_LOG_FILE} line in icecreamd doesn't match the user and group icecream:icecream created by icecream.install.

PSA: This fails to work with community/hardening-wrapper. I am not sure why yet (ld related). I have no desire to try to fix it.

I've done my best to update this package to have it closely resemble upstream (SuSE) where possible, and using Fedora Core's systemd service files for the rest. This was a pretty large change overall. Please let me know if you have issues.

It might be best to manually remove the old icecream package and verify all the contents are gone.

@hunger: Also FWIW, type=simple + the -d option is not correct. However, I've dropped the -d and gone with type=simple because of the issue you reported. This matches the FC service as well.

@hunger Sorry for the delay, I was on vacation.

You are correct about Type=simple. I noticed some other changes in the upstream package which I never bothered to look at when I adopted the package. I should probably work to incorporate those, and may as well do it on the update with Type=simple. I will try to get it completed today or tomorrow.

I had to add the following override to icecream.service:

The Protect*, Private* and NoNewPrivileges are just to harden the installation. That will prevent some attacks.

But without Type=simple the iceccd would stop with a timeout after a while. It apparently does need -d to detach, so Type=forking is probably wrong -- and you do not want forking anyway if you can avoid that with systemd.

I disown the package if anyone wants to take it :)

ecloud commented on 2015-01-14 12:19 does indeed work better.

But there is also aur/icecc.

aur/icemon-git depends on aur/icecc. Whereas aur/iceberg-git does not build.

Does that mean icecc is the one that regular users should be running? Apparently. It does seem to work. But it is version 1.0.1.
