Description Timothée Ravier 2023-06-14 08:56:01 UTC
This package should probably require initscripts-service instead of the full initscripts package.

Is there any specific reason this can not be made to work with systemd? The commit doesn't have any details: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/zfs-fuse/c/8972bd8b18fc3aaf6420e58cdf4ffbb78322c15f?branch=rawhide

Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 Gwyn Ciesla 2023-06-14 15:20:32 UTC
This actually needs the initscripts package, as the zfs-fuse-helper script that allows it to work with systemd sources /etc/rc.d/init.d/functions. It's been using systemd in this way since 2012.

Comment 2 Lukáš Nykrýn 2023-06-15 07:33:32 UTC
Let's reopen this. The problem right now is that I am forced to have zfs-fuse installed if I want to use virtualization. This makes me sad because we (initscripts maintainers) spent a lot of time getting it out from the most used installations. Can't we just rewrite the starting script? I would be to help with that, although I know nothing about zfs, so I probably would not be able to verify that the changes are not breaking anything.

It seems like this could be re-written just as a stand-alone bash script, but -- probably better to actually properly make a systemd unit file. I'm not a ZFS user either, though, so this also isn't something I should touch.

Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2023-07-24 17:22:28 UTC
It's already a bash script called by a unit file... I'm not a ZFS expert either, I just kept it working and ported it, albeit in an ugly way, to systemd.

We still have a dependency on initscripts in Rawhide: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/zfs-fuse/blob/rawhide/f/zfs-fuse.spec#_33
