All this test does is manipulate text files in a subdir specified with --testroot.
It can be a normal unittest without the overhead of creating a machine image.
As a bonus, also test the .standalone version.
This partially reverts d4e9e574ea,
The services systemd-networkd, systemd-resolved, and systemd-timesyncd
enable DynamicUsers= and have bus interfaces. Unfortunately, these
has many problems now. Let us create the relevant users, at least,
Files which are installed as-is (any .service and other unit files, .conf
files, .policy files, etc), are left as is. My assumption is that SPDX
identifiers are not yet that well known, so it's better to retain the
extended header to avoid any doubt.
I also kept any copyright lines. We can probably remove them, but it'd nice to
obtain explicit acks from all involved authors before doing that.
To allow better integration with distributions requiring an explicitly
set gid for the `users` group, provide the new `-Dusers-gid` option to
set to a new numeric value.
In the absence of a specified gid, we'll fallback to the default existing
behaviour of `-` as the gid value, to automatically assign the next available
gid on the system.
So far I avoided adding license headers to meson files, but they are pretty
big and important and should carry license headers like everything else.
I added my own copyright, even though other people modified those files too.
But this is mostly symbolic, so I hope that's OK.
- Remove the uaccess tag from /dev/dri/renderD*.
- Change the owning group from video to render.
- Change default mode to 0666.
- Add an option to allow users to set the access mode for these devices at
The advantage is that is the name is mispellt, cpp will warn us.

+ manual changes to meson.build
squash! build-sys: use #if Y instead of #ifdef Y everywhere
- fix incorrect setting of HAVE_LIBIDN2
Using conf.set() with a boolean argument does the right thing:
either #ifdef or #undef. This means that conf.set can be used unconditionally.
Previously I used '1' as the placeholder value, and that needs to be changed to
'true' for consistency (under meson 1 cannot be used in boolean context). All
checks need to be adjusted.
It's crucial that we can build systemd using VS2010!
... er, wait, no, that's not the official reason. We need to shed old systems
by requring python 3! Oh, no, it's something else. Maybe we need to throw out
345 years of knowlege accumulated in autotools? Whatever, this new thing is
cool and shiny, let's use it.
This is not complete, I'm throwing it out here for your amusement and critique.
- rules for sd-boot are missing. Those might be quite complicated.
- rules for tests are missing too. Those are probably quite simple and
repetitive, but there's lots of them.
- it's likely that I didn't get all the conditions right, I only tested "full"
compilation where most deps are provided and nothing is disabled.
- busname.target and all .busname units are skipped on purpose.
Otherwise, installation into $DESTDIR has the same list of files and the
autoconf install, except for .la files.
It'd be great if people had a careful look at all the library linking options.
I added stuff until things compiled, and in the end there's much less linking
then in the old system. But it seems that there's still a lot of unnecessary
meson has a `shared_module` statement, which sounds like something appropriate
for our nss and pam modules. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to work. For the
nss modules, we need an .so version of '2', but `shared_module` disallows the
version argument. For the pam module, it also didn't work, I forgot the reason.
The handling of .m4 and .in and .m4.in files is rather awkward. It's likely
that this could be simplified. If make support is ever dropped, I think it'd
make sense to switch to a different templating system so that two different
languages and not required, which would make everything simpler yet.
- use get_pkgconfig_variable
- use sh not bash
- use add_project_arguments
- drop required:true and fix progs/prog typo
- use find_library('bz2')
- add TTY_GID definition
- define __SANE_USERSPACE_TYPES__
- use join_paths(prefix, ...) is used on all paths to make them all absolute
- replace all declare_dependency's with 
- add more conf.get guards around optional components
- drop -pipe, -Wall which are the default in meson
- use compiler.has_function() and compiler.has_header_symbol instead of the
- fix duplication in 'liblibsystemd' library name
- use the right .sym file for pam_systemd
- rename 'compiler' to 'cc': shorter, and more idiomatic.
- use ENABLE_ENVIRONMENT_D not HAVE_ENVIRONMENT_D
- rename prefix to prefixdir, rootprefix to rootprefixdir
("prefix" is too common of a name and too easy to overwrite by mistake)
- wrap more stuff with conf.get('ENABLE...') == 1
- use rootprefix=='/' and rootbindir as install_dir, to fix paths under
- use .split() also for src/coredump. Now everything is consistent ;)
- add rootlibdir option and use it on the libraries that require it
- fix check for qrencode and libaudit
- unify handling of executable paths, provide options for all progs
This makes the meson build behave slightly differently than the
autoconf-based one, because we always first try to find the executable in the
filesystem, and fall back to the default. I think different handling of
loadkeys, setfont, and telinit was just a historical accident.
In addition to checking in $PATH, also check /usr/sbin/, /sbin for programs.
In Fedora $PATH includes /usr/sbin, (and /sbin is is a symlink to /usr/sbin),
but in Debian, those directories are not included in the path.
- call all the options 'xxx-path' for clarity.
- sort man/rules/meson.build properly so it's stable
Kernel default mode is 0600, but distributions change it to group kvm, mode
either 0660 (e.g. Debian) or 0666 (e.g. Fedora). Both approaches have valid
reasons (a stricter mode limits exposure to bugs in the kvm subsystem, a looser
mode makes libvirt and other virtualization mechanisms work out of the box for
unprivileged users over ssh).
In Fedora the qemu package carries the relevant rule, but it's nicer to have it
in systemd, so that the permissions are not dependent on the qemu package being
installed. Use of packaged qemu binaries is not required to make use of
/dev/kvm, e.g. it's possible to use a self-compiled qemu or some alternative.
To accomodate both approaches, add a rule to set the mode in 50-udev-default.rules,
but allow the mode to be overridden with a --with-dev-kvm-mode configure rule.
The default is 0660, as the (slightly) more secure option.
As kdbus won't land in the anticipated way, the bus-proxy is not needed in
its current form. It can be resurrected at any time thanks to the history,
but for now, let's remove it from the sources. If we'll have a similar tool
in the future, it will look quite differently anyway.
Note that stdio-bridge is still available. It was restored from a version
prior to f252ff17, and refactored to make use of the current APIs.
Let's add an extra-safety net and change UID/GID to the "systemd-coredump" user when processing coredumps from system
user. For coredumps of normal users we keep the current logic of processing the coredumps from the user id the coredump
was created under.
Hardly any software uses that any more, and better locking mechanisms like
flock() have been available for many years.
Also drop the corresponding "lock" group from sysusers.d/basic.conf.in, as
nothing else is using this.
$ ./configure ... --disable-microhttpd --enable-libcurl
$ make && make install DESTDIR=$(pwd)/INST
$ ls INST/usr/lib/sysusers.d/
There is no a file with `systemd-journald-upload`
./configure --enable/disable-kdbus can be used to set the default
behavior regarding kdbus.
If no kdbus kernel support is available, dbus-dameon will be used.
With --enable-kdbus, the kernel command line option "kdbus=0" can
be used to disable kdbus.
With --disable-kdbus, the kernel command line option "kdbus=1" is
required to enable kdbus support.
systemd-sysusers is a tool to reconstruct /etc/passwd and /etc/group
from static definition files that take a lot of inspiration from
tmpfiles snippets. These snippets should carry information about system
users only. To make sure it is not misused for normal users these
snippets only allow configuring UID and gecos field for each user, but
do not allow configuration of the home directory or shell, which is
necessary for real login users.
The purpose of this tool is to enable state-less systems that can
populate /etc with the minimal files necessary, solely from static data
in /usr. systemd-sysuser is additive only, and will never override
This tool will create these files directly, and not via some user
database abtsraction layer. This is appropriate as this tool is supposed
to run really early at boot, and is only useful for creating system
users, and system users cannot be stored in remote databases anyway.
The tool is also useful to be invoked from RPM scriptlets, instead of
useradd. This allows moving from imperative user descriptions in RPM to
The UID/GID for a user/group to be created can either be chosen dynamic,
or fixed, or be read from the owner of a file in the file system, in
order to support reconstructing the correct IDs for files that shall be
owned by them.
This also adds a minimal user definition file, that should be
sufficient for most basic systems. Distributions are expected to patch
these files and augment the contents, for example with fixed UIDs for
the users where that's necessary.
