watchdog service package gone

Postby rogier » Fri Jan 26, 2018 3:33 pm

In recent ArchARM versions, I saw my ansible is failing to install the watchdog service package on remote hosts (Raspberry Pi). It seems the watchdog package is gone completely from the repos. I can not find any news / announcement of that.

Anyone knows what's going on? Is the watchdog service being deprecated? Is the separate user space package not needed any more? Any info on this would help. :)

Thanks!

Can you point out the package name that owns this file?

Nevermind, upstream moved it to the AUR: https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/pack ... ab480b6dce

Thanks for clearing this up!

Still, (imho) I find the move to AUR a bit curious, watchdog seems pretty 'core' to me..

Yep, I was surprised not seeing it.
