  1. "System wide sound daemon" is opposed to the old...

    "System wide sound daemon" is opposed to the old sound deamons like Artsd etc, that only worked in a particular DE. PA works in all DE's. So PA really is a system wide daemon in that sense. Of...
  2. PulseAudio is a system wide sound daemon. That...

    PulseAudio is a system wide sound daemon. That means if there is a bug in either the sound chip driver, the ALSA layer, or the way the user space program is made, PA gets the blame :-)

    Sound on...

    I am hardly alone in thinking SysVinit is crude, primitive and obsolete. Most major Linux distros where moving away from SysVinit before systemd even existed. And when the Debian CTTE had to decide...

    All systemd CLI tools are first class Linux/Unix tools that behave like any other Linux core tools; they do one thing well, can be piped, aren't chatty when successful etc. Sure, they are developed...

    So you upgrade to an unstable beta release of Jessie and are having problems? Well, this is what beta releases are all about; file bug reports, and please read the release notes before a major OS...
  6. Sure, one could argue that since this wrong,...

    Sure, one could argue that since this wrong, buggy and dangerous behaviour have been the norm for so long it is now a "feature" that should be used forever no matter what initsystem the future...

    The credo, "if a program have to fail, have it fail early and fail noisily", is actually "Unix Philosophy", see here under the "Rule of Repair". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_philosophy

    So...

    It looks like he is tired of the seeming endless political games that Ian Jackson plays, with endless "proposals" that require people to read hundreds of mails a day on several lists just to keep up....
  9. This isn't about Jessie, but about Jessie+1. It...

    This isn't about Jessie, but about Jessie+1. It has long been decided that Jessie should also support SysVinit. The point is that Ian Jackson is now making decisions for Jessie+1. Both his GR...
  10. In this case it is the opposite; Ian Jackson...

    In this case it is the opposite; Ian Jackson wants to remove the freedom of the developers and force them to support SysVinit, since there apparently aren't enough volunteers to provide such support....

    It looks like he has a problem with how Debian is steered. He seems to dislike the use of "political bugs" and endless bureaucratic games that especially Ian Jackson likes to play.

    Jackson is at...

    This one is good:

    "net.core.default_qdisc = fq_codel"

    Fighting "bufferbloat" is a good thing. Faster networks for everyone.

    LWN has a nice feature about it from the 2014 "Linux Plumbers...
  13. It was only a problem for those distros who...

    It was only a problem for those distros who didn't want to follow upstreams desire to use systemd.

    It is like when LXDE changed toolkit from GTK+ to Qt. I am sure that some had a LXDE widget they...

    Well, my point was exactly that mdev wasn't a serious alternative to udev, which you seem to confirm here. Sure, it may be, but it would require a developer community that doesn't seem to exist.

    ...
  15. To me it looks like you misunderstand how "nice"...

    To me it looks like you misunderstand how "nice" work. "nice" is all about yielding for higher priorities and thereby putting "soft" limits on the process. But just because a process has a low nice...

    Can it even automount an e-sata device on a multi-user system? I would definitely label mdev as a "tiny udev alternative for embedded devices", not a serious alternative to udev.




    No it...

    Giving "soft" scheduling priorities by using "nice", isn't the same as putting on hard limits systemd does with cgroups.



    Yes it does since systemd is the cgroups manager on systemd machines....
  18. In the gaming scenario, you are limiting the...

    In the gaming scenario, you are limiting the background activity by imposing CPU/IO limits, not what happening in the Wayland window that has focus.
    "nice" and "CFS" are rather irrelevant in such a...
  19. I don't think you can use the new cgroups...

    I don't think you can use the new cgroups "unified hierarchy" in a secure way without a manager of some sort.
    Not a problem, there already exist such managers such as "cgmanager" (Ubuntu/LXC).

    I...

    I am not talking about MAC's. systemd's security features works on top of MAC's, and aren't a substitute for those.




    cgroups is a kernel feature, the point being that every systemd distro...
