Here's a WIP to try:

@grubber 4.2 has been out for a while, is there any ETA? I was planning on having FreeIPA on Arch, but if there's no PKGBUILD in sight I'd have a look on creating one, or otherwise host a VM instead.

Well, I didn't do much maintaining so far, I was rather busy working on upstream. Once 4.2 is out (should be in a few days), I will look into porting it to Arch.

@grubber any idea if you're going to continue maintaining it?

@grubber: Great. Looking forward to some freeipa action in arch!

grubber: Absolutely! Feel free to use whatever you think might help.

I'm adopting the package. I'm upstream FreeIPA developer (

chenxiaolong, can I use your work as a base for upstream Arch support?

chenxiaolong commented on 2015-01-02 06:14

I've disowned this package. I'm finding I don't quite have the experience to package this and keep it working well.

I won't upload it to the AUR (because it needs python-yubico, which isn't packaged yet), but anyone is free to use my FreeIPA 4.1.2 packaging as a base:

FreeIPA is already 4.0.3, might be better supported now?

@t.ask: I spend a bit of time working to port FreeIPA to Arch and the IPA client mostly works (although I haven't had the time to properly test the past few versions). The FreeIPA server is not supported at the moment.

You can set up the client just as you would in Fedora: Arch doesn't have any nice tools to manage the /etc/pam.d/* and /etc/nsswitch.conf configuration files though, so you'll need to run this command to make the necessary changes:

$ sudo sss-auth-setup --enable-nss --enable-pam
