Issue with libsystemd0

Hi folks,

I installed Devuan on SBC bootstrapping before Debain and then migrating on Devuan following the instruction but I didn't realize that package libsystemd0 was still there, now if I want to install elogind or packages that require it, it ask to remove cryptsetup, cryptsetup-initramfs and dropbear, perhaps I need to downgrades those packages...

What's your thoughts?

Thanks! 🙏

Re: Issue with libsystemd0

Apparently this workaround resolved the issue:

sudo aptitude install elogind libpam-elogind policykit-1 --without-recommends
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  elogind libduktape207{a} libelogind0{a} libpam-elogind{b} 
  libpolkit-agent-1-0{a} libpolkit-gobject-1-0{a} 
  libpolkit-gobject-elogind-1-0{a} pkexec{a} policykit-1 
  polkitd{a} sgml-base{a} xml-core{a} 
The following packages are RECOMMENDED but will NOT be installed:
  gnome-flashback gnome-shell lxpolkit lxqt-policykit 
  mate-polkit phosh policykit-1-gnome polkit-kde-agent-1 
  polkitd-pkla ukui-polkit

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 dummy-logind : Conflicts: logind which is a virtual package, provided by:
                           - libpam-elogind (246.10-5), but 246.10-5 is to be installed
                           - dummy-logind (246.10-5), but 246.10-5 is installed

 libpam-elogind : Depends: libelogind-compat but it is not going to be installed
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

     Remove the following packages:                
1)     dummy-logind [246.10-5 (now, stable)]       
2)     libsystemd0 [252.17-1~deb12u1 (now, stable)]

     Install the following packages:               
3)     libelogind-compat [246.10-5 (stable)]

But:

 util-linux depends on libsystemd0.
 ppp depends on libsystemd0.
 lvm2 depends on libsystemd0 (>= 233).
 libwebkit2gtk-4.1-0:arm64 depends on libsystemd0.
 libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37:arm64 depends on libsystemd0.
 libvte-2.91-0:arm64 depends on libsystemd0 (>= 220).
 libseat1:arm64 depends on libsystemd0 (>= 238).
 libpulse0:arm64 depends on libsystemd0.
 liblvm2cmd2.03:arm64 depends on libsystemd0 (>= 233).
 libjavascriptcoregtk-4.1-0:arm64 depends on libsystemd0.
 libjavascriptcoregtk-4.0-18:arm64 depends on libsystemd0.
 libgnome-desktop-3-20:arm64 depends on libsystemd0.
 gnome-keyring depends on libsystemd0.
 gcr depends on libsystemd0.
 bsdutils depends on libsystemd0.
 at-spi2-core depends on libsystemd0.

Thus:

sudo aptitude reinstall ppp lvm2 libwebkit2gtk-4.1-0 libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37  libvte-2.91-0 libseat1 libpulse0 liblvm2cmd2.03 libjavascriptcoregtk-4.1-0 libjavascriptcoregtk-4.0-18 libgnome-desktop-3-20 gnome-keyring gcr at-spi2-core cryptsetup cryptsetup-initramfs dropbear-initramfs

Re: Issue with libsystemd0

In your last command you have > where a | should be (and thus any output went into a file), except you don't even need grep:

apt list --installed '*systemd*'

Re: Issue with libsystemd0

Unless you were in the bin directory when running the command, it's not going to be a problem. Assuming you're in your home directory, just make sure you use ~/grep to view/remove the file and it'll be fine.

If you're super paranoid, rename the file, download grep.deb just in case, restart, confirm grep still works (which it will), then remove the renamed version.

(Also, since my edit was a bit slow you may have missed that you don't need grep to filter the output.)

Re: Issue with libsystemd0

Oh my gosh it is very resilient! 🤨

apt list --installed | grep systemd

WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.

libsystemd-shared/stable,now 252.17-1~deb12u1 arm64 [installed]

apt purge libsystemd-shared -s
NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt needs root privileges for real execution.
      Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
      so don't depend on the relevance to the real current situation!

It can be removed without fear! 💪
