I tend to disable most systemd daemons, even systemd-journald, but systemd-resolved is elusive. If I disable it, netctl responds with:

Unit dbus-org.freedesktop.resolve1.service not found.

I believe there is a way to disable systemd-resolved, while keeping netctl functional. I disabled/masked everything but systemd-resolved, including systemd-logind.

The problem was this line in my usb0.conf file


So, comment all DNS lines out, or delete them, to make netctl work w/o systemd-resolved.

  • What .conf file do you mean?
