  1. Hi Aaditya,

    Since Manjaro-Openrc does not use systemd, what happens to programs that depend on systemctl to function. I tried to install ClamAV. I was unable to continue the installation since systemctl is required to both set up and check the status of the ClamAV daemons. Is there a way to fix the problem so that I can install ClamAV on my computer?

    Below is the link to the website that contains the directions to install and configure ClamAV on Manjaro that has systemd.


    1. Hi Henry,

      systemctl is used in systemd environments to control the services, in OpenRC rc-service and rc-update are used: https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=OpenRC,_an_alternative_to_systemd#Configuration

      In Manjaro OpenRC one usually needs to install the {daemon}-openrc package to get the OpenRC script, for example clamav-openrc in case of ClamAV:

      $ pacman -Ss clamav-openrc
      community/clamav-openrc 20170401-1 (openrc-misc)
      OpenRC clamav init script

      After installing this package you can start and enable the service as written in the configuration link stated in the beginning of this comment.

      If you have any further query regarding this topic please post in the Manjaro forums or one of the OpenRC related posts on this blog like https://abchk1234.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/using-openrc-on-arch-archbang-manjaro-linux/
