sudo criu check still produces:

Error (cr-check.c:136): sys/kernel/ns_last_pid sysctl is inaccessible: No such file or directory
Does not look good.

I understand this is because of the standard arch kernel not providing CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE.

Also, if I understand correctly, this was marked as fixed here:

Anyone has a status update on that one?

Hi maintainer,

Building this package is failed now.
It need python at build time, at directory src/criu-2.0/lib/py/images/ for target

Add python to makedepend in PKGBUILD could resolve this problem.

Thank you.

lase: Thank you.
This problem is already known and reported.
Package libbsd from the official repo is outdated.
Btw, your solution works, but I would wait for libbsd update.

The package seems to be unable to compile when `libbsd` is installed (which is required by `smbclient` among others).
I'm too lazy to figure out why, though :)

As a workaround you can:
1. Uninstall `libbsd` with `pacman -Rdd libbsd` (`-dd` skips dependency checks, letting you remove a required package)
2. Compile `criu`
3. And then reinstall `libbsd` with `pacman -S --asdeps libbsd`
WARNING: this temporarily breaks the package system. Make sure you always do that third step!

You can use

make PREFIX=/usr SBINDIR=/usr/bin LOGROTATEDIR=/etc/logrotate.d LIBDIR=/usr/lib ...

in build() and package() instead of patching.

Added feature request . Feel free to vote there for enabling CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE again.

1.4 is out

Yep. Starting from linux-3.14 CONFIG_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE is intentionally disabled as it depends on CONFIG_EXPERT (
I'm not going to support this package anymore until the official kernel package is properly configured for it.
If anyone wishes to provide custom kernel with CHECKPOINT_RESTORE enabled, I'll be happy to orphan this package and give ownership to this person.

PS: I think CHECKPOINT_RESTORE will move from under EXPERT option in next releases, as it becomes more popular and proves it's stable enough to be included into base kernel package.

I seem to recll some discussion on arch-dev where it was decided to remove support for CRIU from the standard kernel.
If you want to use this you need to compile you own kernel with those options turned on.
