I started up a wiki page for Tvheadend. Input and help is welcome.

to clarify this up for me i looked it up in the code and documentation. libsystemd as said is used to support systemd specific features like socket activation and a software watchdog in this case. While the socket activation appears as of not much use, at least to me, the software watchdog could be interesting in cases where the process just locks up somehow. The library is practically available on all arch installations so it might just as well could be enabled if desired :)

@mercora Thanks for the info! I wasn't aware why this flag existed, it indeed seems unwanted to be enabled. :)

i am pretty sure libsystemd is also used for socket activation which is not used in the current systemd unit file for this package either. It therefore should be safe to disable the dependency. If you want to enable this support there is a comment in the unit file about how to make use of these features.

It's been quite a while ago so I don't remember the details, but I did try that flag in the past. I don't remember for sure, but I don't think it worked.

From what I can see in the service file, it sounds like this just enables some watchdog feature of systemd?

Does anyone has a use for this? I'm not opposed to enabling it, but I'd rather not do it without good reason since it appears to require changes to the service file too.

@anthonytex That does sound useful? :)

@francoism90 that flag is used to enable the use of systemd's apis and access to some features like, in this case, a software watchdog provided by systemd's daemon

Should the flag libsystemd_daemon be enabled in configure? It states libsystemd_daemon no on compile, although I still don't why, because the systemd file is being compiled.

No idea, still builds fine for me.

Why has this been flagged?

Update to libnghttp2 to ver 1.34.0-1 causes TvHeadend web UI to remain blank in both chromium and firefox. I'm staying at ver 1.33.0-1 for now. I'm not sure if this needs to be fixed upstream by TVHeadend or if later versions of the browsers will fix it.

Anyone shed some light on this?
