I removed the obsolete init script from the package completely in a recent commit. Therefore merely SystemD is supported from now on. I did this change since I expect that most Arch Linux users stick to SystemD and that probably no one using this package actually made use of those extra files.
Please let me now immediately in case I am wrong about this and I will add those files again as soon as possible.

See this diff for a fix example (moves all the /var stuff to post_install):

I have updated the package to the version provided by aorth.
Thank you very much for providing the update!

aorth commented on 2013-06-03 11:56

I've updated this package to move all binaries from /usr/sbin -> /usr/bin:

aorth commented on 2013-06-01 07:58

Heads up, you'll need to move /usr/sbin/munged to /usr/bin soon as part of the finishing of the /usr move. See Allan's comments on the arch-dev-public mailing list:

Now includes systemd files as proposed by wookietreiber.

wookietreiber commented on 2012-10-31 23:47

Hi, could you please make sure, that the next release includes these systemd files


tegenf commented on 2012-01-17 10:21

* fixed license
* fixed dependencies
* keep /var/run for now since the location is required by munge
