Update: I've added brokenpip3 as a co-maintainer, he will start maintaining lxd and lxd-lts from now on.

@Elrondo46 : the out-of-date flagging system is NOT to be used if a package is broken, a comment is sufficient. Also: next time you post an error message, make sure it's in English so people can actually understand it. For instructions on that, please see

I don't have much time at the moment to maintain this, so if you'd like to help, file a pull request against and I'll push those changes back to here.

If you encounter issues building the package, please ensure you are using the default go or go-pie compiler from the Arch repositories.

Also see the wiki page for common troubleshooting and usage help.

@brokenpip3 Sure, , it's in the rules file.

@hottea: thanks, I'll look into it

@nightuser: i tried in this days to fix this package and lts one but no luck so far, tomorrow I'll try to write on lxd forum and see if some maintainer can help us. (I have two different error) Can you post the ubuntu build script you mentioned? because the second link you posted point to the same lxd github issue. Thanks

According to upstream, lxcfs should be installed as depends or recommends.

@brokenpip3 I received the answer from upstream:

They say that the right way of building LXD is to build it from the release tarball. I looked up the build script in Ubuntu ( but found it quite complicated.

I'll try looking into it tomorrow.

Upd: From the first glance, it does contain directory "_dist" which contains correct libraries and prefetched go packages.

For now the only option is to build package lxd-git from AUR and then switch to this package when the new version comes out. I reported the issue upstream (in Makefile it updates dqlite and several other packages from master, and it's not how it should be.)

Any help? make: *** [Makefile:19: default] Error 2 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... Error making: lxd

@brokenpip3 cool, thanks! Unfortunately this in turn fails at some point with: (download)
../../CanonicalLtd/go-dqlite/driver.go:29:2: use of internal package not allowed
../../CanonicalLtd/go-dqlite/driver.go:30:2: use of internal package not allowed
../../CanonicalLtd/go-dqlite/log.go:8:2: use of internal package not allowed
make: *** [Makefile:18: default] Error 1
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().


Well, nvm: I solved the immediate problem with docker, I can wait for 3.17.

brokenpip3 commented on 2019-08-27 17:03

@Hi-Angel: you can try the previus version of pkgbuild:

with lxd version 3.15, it's not the last but you can use it meanwhile version 3.17 comes out.

The lxd-lts package is broken, I'll try to fix it in the next few days.
