Hi Xan,

As far as I know, Nous has already updated the openrc-core package, you can check it here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/archopenrc/rss?path=/

Does it mean that it is compiled against ncurses 6.0?

Downloaded the package and ran ldd on it, and it seems the answer is no.

I will try to update it when I get some time.

Re: OpenRC & eudev on Arch

@ aaditya,

actually libeinfo.so.1 seems to be linked against ncurses 6. I am not sure whether openrc binary needs to be compiled against it too.

Maybe it automatically gets picked up:

$ ldd openrc
	linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007fff2e3e9000)
	libutil.so.1 => /lib64/libutil.so.1 (0x00007f562688a000)
	librc.so.1 => /usr/lib64/librc.so.1 (0x00007f562667d000)
	libeinfo.so.1 => /usr/lib64/libeinfo.so.1 (0x00007f5626477000)
	libdl.so.2 => /lib64/libdl.so.2 (0x00007f5626273000)
	libpam.so.0 => not found
	libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x00007f5625ea7000)
	libncurses.so.5 => /lib64/libncurses.so.5 (0x00007f5625c50000)
	/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x000055dd635fc000)

I am at my system now and will have a go at the updating the package(s).

Edit-

Updated the repo, put in new openrc-core package as version 0.17-2.1 (previous was 0.17.3)

Re: OpenRC & eudev on Arch

I just installed openrc on Arch, it was easier than I thought. However I followed the instructions in http://systemd-free.org/install.php, not the ones in the wiki. IMO the steps are more clearly explained in that website.

If you want to follow known broken instructions, that's your call. The wiki expects you to understand what's actually happening. That said, as with any wiki page it's open to suggestions.

Anyway you guys really should add more strict depends to your packages, e.g. depends=('libncurses.so.6')

Really? why do you say so? The forum search function does not return any meaningful result about that.

Re: OpenRC & eudev on Arch

zwa, check my post earlier in this thread : https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 9#p1549109

Although it's now a bit clearer then when i wrote that post, systemd-free page still doesn't make clear the huge potential of problems by doing everything in one go.

is there any guide then for either apg or artoo's method that doesnt involve going through the wiki and this thread and digging through the various changes?
i originally installed with the systemd-free method as well, and all seems to be working (other than a hiccup in the last month with polkit, but it seems to be fixed with the last update).  but other potential users who wish to switch would have a difficult time if they have to go digging for updates in this thread for changes on configuration/scripts/etc

The systemd-free page appears to have improved somewhat after i wrote that, but it's still far from what it should be in my opinion.

Well I did install openrc first in a VM to test it and then with a fresh install in my notebook after that. So far so good. Your concerns seem to be aimed at existing arch installations that may already have some problems to start with. It's a good point though, also, a Arch install that has some tweaking and lots of packages installed will be probably more prone to fail after installing openrc. Unless you double check everything and of course alternative packages work alright.

Re: OpenRC & eudev on Arch

https://github.com/AladW/init-config/tree/master

So, basically:

1. Install the init, rc, scripts and init-config packages
2. run `svclist`, configure services (here with rc update), and install/enable cron if not done already
3. set the hostname, kernel modules and keymap
4. add your user to legacy groups (audio, video, etc)

Reboot and done - the first step would have replaced the /sbin/init symlink. To undo it, remove the init-config package and reinstall systemd-sysvcompat.

Compare to that horrid 20-step program of systemd-free. tongue

Re: OpenRC & eudev on Arch

If you guys have a openrc package related problem, then I suggest posting in other thread with the [OpenRC] tag. This is because browsing this big thread is very tedious and inefficient. If you do as I suggest, other users could access valuable information more easily.
Just my two cents.

Ah, another easy way... Pardon me, doc, but those are just as many steps, most masqueraded behind a PKGBUILD. The purpose of verbosity in systemd-free's pages is to clarify what's done and why - they could just as easily become a two-liner pacman and a few edits afterwards.

And anyway, aren't you the same fellow who a few months back objected that there isn't an easy way out or people would run around like headless chickens? What's changed now? Prove me wrong and put your method in the wiki; those people would be more than thankful if any working migration guide was over there (and not a single fsck.vfat will be given if that's systemd-free's or anyone else's).

What's more, we would be glad to include your method in systemd-free.org, if you took the time and elaborated a little (or basically provided a simple html page).

Please remember, this is a spare-time effort of three or four hobbyists. Everybody's more than welcome to contribute and all suggestions or bug reports are very valuable.

Maybe a mod can split all the artoo/apg/systemd-free/etc stuff to a separate thread in TGN.

My main issue is - like pointed out many times - is that there's little distinction between the various steps in your guide. And most of them - like removing systemd, using eudev, migrating sysctl, using an unofficial repo, making changes to passwd, sysrq-trigger - are not needed at all and more so, are just asking for trouble. Even consolekit is optional in most cases (and if you do use it, you should avoid using groups - see Ubuntu wiki).

All the while others that -are- required, like xorg-xwrapper, are hidden behind a massive pacman command.

And anyway, aren't you the same fellow who a few months back objected that there isn't an easy way out or people would run around like headless chickens? What's changed now? Prove me wrong and put your method in the wiki; those people would be more than thankful if any working migration guide was over there (and not a single fsck.vfat will be given if that's systemd-free's or anyone else's).

Maybe you should check the PKGBUILD above before making witty comments - every file has a reference to the respecitve wiki section, and there's even an install file to detail all the steps. It's merely a convenience for those who already followed the steps manually. I have no objections on adding it as a Tip to the wiki.

What's more, we would be glad to include your method in systemd-free.org, if you took the time and elaborated a little (or basically provided a simple html page).

Please remember, this is a spare-time effort of three or four hobbyists. Everybody's more than welcome to contribute and all suggestions or bug reports are very valuable.

My first suggestion would be to remove nonsense like:

"The Archlinux OpenRC wiki page doesn't contain information on the migration process anymore but instead links to other resources, not always Arch-specific. "

It 1. contains all you need to know 2. one of the main ideas behind Arch is that you can use upstream documentation and have it working.

I wasn't, but it doesn't surprise me. Since Arch is a full-throttle systemd distro (and artoo isn't particularly fond of systemd, which he doesn't bother to hide), they preferred a side-by-side solution than a complete systemd removal. The latter would cause unwanted support demands in their forums. One such question caused the removal of systemd-free.org's reference in the OpenRC-wiki page... So, the best solution is to move from Arch to other, less pro-systemd distros. I, for one, have stopped new Arch installations, preferring Manjaro-OpenRC instead. I like pacman, not Arch.

Amusing.

Re: OpenRC & eudev on Arch

I suspect this thread has run it's course and now seems to primarily attract unhelpful debates and semantic arguments.

I'm closing this now, not to indicate that openRC isn't a welcome topic, but that the announcement of the relevant AUR packages has been long since made - that was (I believe) the purpose of this thread.

There are periodic technical issues addressed well in this thread, but I am inclined to agree with zwa that these might be best served in their own threads where they can focus on the issue at hand and become a resource for the community if/when they are solved.

Thanks to everyone who has worked hard on making openRC a reality in arch - and also to those who have contributed to any of the various useful resources users can chose from to learn from.

If anyone feels that this thread should not be closed (particularly artoo as it was their thread to start with) feel free to contact me via email.  But to reiterate, the closing is in no way punitive - it looks like the purpose of the thread was served, and now we can seal it up to keep out flies.

Closed.
