Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

Hi!

I wanted to install aur packages in Docker images of Archlinux.

I tried to use pacaur with failure. When I tried to install dependencies my install failes on step

WORKDIR /home/packager/
RUN git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/pod2man.git
WORKDIR /home/packager/pod2man/
RUN makepkg -i --noconfirm

Resulting in

I commented out some lines after experimentation or that I saw in other tutorials. I hope it's good, as it's "WIP" "Work in Progress" dirty version, so please ignore lines starting with "#" .

#COPY packager-actions /etc/sudoers.d/

Was this supposed to do something?

Yes! Thank you! I haven't used phpbb/fluxbb since so long time, and now at the end of weekend clicked things in hurry.

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

Erm, my point here is that makepkg worked fine, utterly fine, but you have sudo problems.

And you also have commented out code that looks like it was intended to make your makepkg user be permitted to run sudo without a password prompt screwing everything up. What else were you intending to install as a sudoers.d/ drop-in file?

Therefore, my diagnosis on helping you fix your reported problem is "try completing that bit there".

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

Thank you for hint!

Basically My problem is that I don't know what's the "easy" way of installing apps from "AUR" inside Docker containers. And maybe my approach is completely wrong.

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

I don't use docker ... at all.  But just inferring from the syntax that is there, I'd suggest dropping the '-i' flag from makepkg so you only *build* the package.  Then after "USER root" and after rerunning "WORKDIR /home/packager/" if necessary, "RUN pacman -U */*.pkg.tar.zst" and forget about sudo all together.  It looks like docker gives you a means with which to run commands as root, so sudo serves no purpose.

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

Thank you, I agree that it's more AUR issue and how to use `pacaur` inside Dockerfile  at this point.

I guess I am missing something about using `pacaur` in non interactive way at this point.

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

btw. I've made PR against pacaur with Dockerfile that installs `pacaur` succesfully: https://github.com/E5ten/pacaur/pull/28

and reported issue also in `pacaur` repo https://github.com/E5ten/pacaur/issues/27

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

So wait - you are building with makepkg and installing with pacman just fine - why are you also trying to use pacaur?

Note, that if you install built packages one at a time, there's no need for the */*.pkg.tar.zst, just specify the packagefile directly.  I just assumed you'd build them all first then install them all in one go.  If any of your AUR packages depend on other AUR packages then you would have to ensure the dependencies were built and installed first.

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

Regarding " */*.pkg.tar.zst" -> I want to make this Dockerfile working, not perfect. I would consider optimising this at this point "premature optimisation" as it does not slow down process much to reinstall already build packages in previous stages again.

Packages that I build manually with makepkg I build only because without them `pacaur` does not install - they seem to be dependencies.

Why I want to use packaur ? Becuase I would like later to install more packages, not manually with gitclone+makepkg+pacman multiple stage process, for each dependency, but to have a tool that will download and install all dependencies from arch repos (community,etc..)  and AUR  that are required.
(Maybe I am using wrong tool for the job for Dockerfile container.)

Basically, I am looking for Dockerfile template that will allow me to install AUR packages with convenience (i.e. automatically fetching all dependencies and accepting in non interactive way -> yes, I can later run such thing inside extra layers of isolation for security ).

Have I missed sth in my approach?

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

Is that docker templates meant for private use of for use by 3rd parties ?


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

Re: Docker+AUR with pacaur ?

If you want to use an AUR helper to build dependencies, install them, then build other packages and install those too...

... the you need to let the AUR helper do its job and install them in the right order, by giving it the ability to run 'sudo pacman' without password prompts.

And thus we return to my original post #2
