Description

When trying to run pacman -Syu today (last -Syu was 2019-10-28), pacman asked to replace some packages with a version coming from nonsystemd (dbus service and binary, elogind, openrc and polkit), but after accepting all of them, it printed "libelogind and systemd-libsystemd are in conflict" (depended on by elogind and dbus-elogind, and systemd-libs-dummy respectively on my machine without upgrading). What is the reason for this conflict and is there a way to solve it?

megver made some changes recently to sort out initsystem conflicts; but they may not be complete

the original arrangement was troublesome - it allowed openrc to be installed while [nonsystemd] was not enabled; which led to openrc plus some parts of systemd being installed - thats what we are trying to sort out now

the plan is to make them mutually-exclusive - so that, from now on, [nonsystemd] will be mandatory in order to use openrc

  • anyone using systemd, will need to ensure that [nonsystemd] is disabled
  • anyone using openrc, who did not already have [nonsystemd] enabled, will need to enable it, and pacman -Syyuu may be required

this could be related to a similar bug report on the mailing list

https://lists.parabola.nu/pipermail/assist/2019-November/001442.html

in that instance, megver has advised to wait until this is sorted out better

I forgot to mention the machine where this happened did have [nonsystemd] enabled, which is why other packages were pulled from it to replace others. But the conflict still happened.

Read about my plans here

I'm replacing all -elogind and some -openrc pkgs in [nonsystemd], so those replacements will have full elogind and openrc by default without having to install anything from [pcr]. I'll eventually deprecate/move stuff in [pcr] and publish a news about, but I still have to do more test, because after all of these I'll launch a new OpenRC ISO

for anyone who has this problem today, the conflict can be resolved with this command:

$ sudo pacman -S libelogind

:: libelogind and systemd-libsystemd are in conflict. Remove systemd-libsystemd? [y/N] y

megver, presumably the permanent solution is to remove libelogind from [pcr] ?
