some arch update totally fucked up my openrc installation beyond repair. i got segfaults from libc-2.22 all over the place and was unable to do anything about it... this is the 2nd time openrc was broken by an arch system update. only this time i had to switch to systemd or i would have had to reinstall the whole system.

this is bad and sad. i'm contemplating a switch to another distro. maybe gentoo, but openrc seems pretty much done for on arch.

thx for the great work but i get the feeling openrc has been all but abandoned by apg and artoo at this point. i can't blame them. it's a constant uphill battle.

if you are really leaving the battle field i'd suggest to reflect that in the rather oud dated and by now more than confusing wiki page.

I have no desire to add arbitrary provides to my package nor do I see anything in that thread indicating how that would even help you.

To apg: there's been a name change of openrc-core to openrc. This will cause all *-openrc packages by artoo to depend on openrc. Would you, please, add a 'provides=(openrc-apg)' in your PKGBUILD, to make the builds conflict, as suggested by artoo here?
Thanks in advance.

does anyone have an autofs init script?

due to the switch to ncurses6 , package needs a rebuild BEFORE you reboot.

Updated with tmpfiles patches.

apg commented on 2014-08-26 13:53

I've already submitted a patch upstream for tmpfiles. Here's the bug report for rc-cgroup:

@ Mektub,

this is the stable version. openrc-git is the Git version.

openrc-arch-services-git contains OpenRC service files adapted for use with Arch Linux.

Mektub commented on 2013-08-16 02:41

I have openrc-git and openrc-arch-services-git in one of my computers.

What is the difference to this openrc ?
