Hello, The archnosh repository provides the build files necessary to integrate the nosh system and service manager with Archlinux package management, as of version 1.33.
The nosh toolset is part of the daemontools family of managers, several of which are already packaged for Archlinux: runit, s6, daemontools, perp... The packages generated via archnosh follow the Debian packaging provided by the author of nosh and allow for two major setups: 1. Running the nosh service manager under systemd Here systemd remains the default system and service manager but migrating a service to nosh supervision is just a matter of disabling it from systemd and enabling its equivalent with nosh. 2. Running nosh as both system and service manager This is a fully nosh-managed system, the nosh system manager runs as init. Various packages provide simple utilities which may be of interest in themselves, in particular the eponymous nosh script processor. The nosh toolset has currently been tested for the x86_64 architecture on qemu/kvm virtual machines and non-virtualised on a laptop with minimal installs of early 2017 Archlinux releases. Although further testing is of course ongoing, obtaining a useful working system is made relatively easy by the comprehensive collection of service bundles --the native service configuration and control mechanism-- packaged with the toolset. Pointers for installing on Archlinux are available in the repository README. A guide is available for further information about nosh. The latest repository archive is available here: https://framagit.org/taca/archnosh/repository/archive.tar.gz?ref=v1.33-1 It follows the Arch packaging standards as much as possible but can no doubt be improved.
