snapd review:
https://arstechnica.com/information-tec ... verywhere/

To be able to work with snapd Apparmor seems to be needed. Is it possible that it is not into the porteus kernel?

To test if AppArmor has been correctly enabled:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Snap#Usage

Code: Select all

$ aa-enabled
Yes
[guest@porteus ~]$ aa-enabled
bash: aa-enabled: command not found
[guest@porteus ~]$

Installation
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Snap#Usage

AppArmor is available in all officially supported kernels.

To enable AppArmor as default security model on every boot, set the following kernel parameters:

apparmor=1 security=apparmor

Thanks.

as it says here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Snap#Usage
Note: If AppArmor isn't enabled in your system then all snaps will run in devel mode which mean they will have same, unrestricted access to your system as apps installed from Arch Linux repositories.
so apparmour is optional
but afaiui, systemd is not optional, not only present but running as init/service manager..
so not really a go in nemesis.. since we use openrc here..
neko's aporteus, however, does use systemd..

It was for Kulle, and some curiosity from my part. This means that it will work with aporteus of neko maybe. In fact, I am not even able to get it going in manjaro. snapd calls for AUR package.
Thanks.
