Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

It shouldn't break it. The worst it will do is return 404 Not Found errors as it does for missing packages.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Howdy - and thanks for this amazing tool!
Been using it for a while now, works flawlessly everytime!

I just have a quick question:

I've just started to use the [testing] repo on one of the machine (say machine B).

From what I understand, pacserve is not aware of repositories, so if I upgrade machine B before machine A, machine B will feed packages from [testing] (since they have the same name than those in [extra/core] ) to machine A, is that right?

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Hi Xnye,

thanks for the nifty tool. I seem to have a problem with sharing packages, which contain a colon in their name.

For example I tried sharing lirc-1:0.9.0-16-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz but the client received lirc-utils-1%3A0.9.0-16-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz and pacman complained about integrity. So I had to rename that package on the client and the upgrade worked as expected.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

I just double-checked this here with lirc. The package is transferred and saved with the correct name. There are no errors in the package.

There may be an error in the lirc package on the server. The pacman output that you posted may indicate another error. It seems to pass the integrity check then fail on something else.

Remove the misnamed file on both the server and the client, then check the integrity of the package on the server.

You can also run "pacman -Sw lirc --cachedir /some/empy/directory" on the client and then compare the downloaded package to the one on the server.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Thanks Xyne, the error was due to the erroneous lirc package on the server. It works now.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

I'm having trouble getting pacserve to start with systemd. I get this after startup:

$ systemctl status pacserve.service

pacserve.service - Pacserve
	  Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/pacserve.service; enabled)
	  Active: inactive (dead) (Result: exit-code) since Mon, 27 Aug 2012 12:27:16 +0100; 1h 23min ago
	 Process: 829 ExecStart=/usr/bin/pacserve --multicast (code=exited, status=1/FAILURE)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/pacserve.service

I can manually restart it using systemctl restart pacserve and pacserve will work

Any ideas?

Thanks for creating this piece of software, it's truly excellent and saves so much bandwidth!

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Sorry, I still haven't switched to systemd. The service file was contributed by someone else and I know very little about it. I will update the package if someone posts a solution, otherwise I'll take a look at it after I switch over to systemd (hopefully in a week or two).  After that, I will dig into the systemd documentation and provide all necessary service files for my packages.

I should probably note that I am using pacserve by having added the lines

Include = /etc/pacman.d/pacserve

in pacman.conf and then calling pacman or yaourt.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Try the new version and let me know if it resolves the issue. You will likely see a few error messages due to the socket not being ready when it starts, but it should now exit and be restarted automatically.

If anyone has any suggestions of how to enforce correct ordering in the service file, please tell me.

Unfortunately it does not work. It seems it does not erase /run/pacserved.pid while stopping, so it cannot restart.

After boot, I get

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Try pacserve-2013.4.6-1. You may need to remove the existing PID file if you want to start it without rebooting, but after that it should always be removed automatically.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Hello,

pacserve is truly awesome ! Thank you for this gem !

I also stumbled with the issue of the existing pid file at startup. I see the last version (4.6) deletes the pid file when it is closed. The issue is if there is a hard reboot, the pid file isn't removed, so upon startup, it will fail to start, seeing that there is a pid file.

Here's a little patch that reads the pid file and verifies if the process exists :

--- pacserve	2013-04-06 04:11:24.000000000 +0200
+++ /usr/bin/pacserve	2013-04-06 15:39:51.352239845 +0200

-        sys.exit(1)

       try:
         with open(options.pid_file, 'w') as f:
           f.write("%d" % pid)

Is it valid enough for you (Xyne) to integrate it in your code ? I haven't seen any other way to submit code to you, and think it can be valuable to anyone.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Note that this patch isn't solid enough : if the file already exists and there is a pid of a previous pacserve, it will think there is no pacserve running and overwrite the existing value with the new pacserve. But if the old pid has more digits, then writing the new pid will not be enough (because there will be some digits of the old one!)

Here's a more robust version :

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

If there is a hard reboot, there will be no PID file because /run is in tmpfs.

Nevertheless, checking if the previous process is still active is indeed more robust. I have applied your patch with some changes (pacserve-2013.4.6.1). Thanks for the patches and welcome to the forum!


Note to self: I really need to clean up the mess of noobish Python code that I've been meaning to convert to Python 3 for at least a year.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Unfortunately, pacserve still fails to start at boot most of the times. Here is a typical status:

Of course, if I restart, everything is fine.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

I tried to remove pacserve (pacman -Rns pacserve) to install it cleanly and I notice that after removal, the following files remain on my system:

/etc/systemd/system/pacserve.service.requires
/etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/pacserve.service
/etc/systemd/system/pacserve.service.requires/pacserve-ports.service

I don't know if this is expected.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Regarding my previous error messages, an error message I currently get is

pacserve: error: --pid-file option requires an argument

which indicates (at least to me) that the EnvironmentFile is not processed correctly. I think this happens after the latest update to systemd 201.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Doubling the variable definitions in /etc/conf.d/pacserve, i.e.:

PID_FILE="/run/pacserved.pid"
PID_FILE="/run/pacserved.pid"
...
PACSERVE_ARGS="--multicast"
PACSERVE_ARGS="--multicast"

might be a particularly terrible quickfix, but it seems to work.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

When you enable a service, systemd creates symlinks in /etc/systemd/system. Those are not owned by any package and it is normal that they remain after removing the package with the files that they link.

The Pacserve service depends on the systemd network.target. If you configure your network manually then you should also configure pacserve manually. Without knowing more about the system I cannot help.

I have added a restart delay to the pacserve.service file which should hopefully take care of the second error. I have also split the configuration file in case there was some issue with the pacserve-ports Bash array at the end of that file.

Please update and let me know if the problem is solved.

OK about these two.
About the first, I thought that removing a package should disable the service, if enabled, but it seems this is not the case.

The problem persists, and the "solution" proposed above by spacebison seems to magically work (I checked with the latest version that you just uploaded).

I am unable to fix the issue by duplicating the variables in the config files. Basically looping over this:

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

I think that spychalski is experiencing the timeout problem, which I am experiencing too if I enable pacserve to start on boot.

Regarding the configuration problem. the way I seem to get over it is to remove all comments from /etc/pacserve/pacserve.service.conf

It seems that these EnvironmentFile's are not bash scripts, but I have not been able to find their specification anywhere.

Re: pacserve - easily share Pacman packages between computers

Worth noting that starting pacserve manually (currently doing it via tmux) works perfect. Doing this on 3 machines since none of them are able to start the service.
