    I'll second this - if there's an easy way to install it with journald support, I'll happily replace systemd with it. It's a great compromise for people who like the improvements systemd offers, but...
  2. I'm not so sure that those languages are aiming...

    I'm not so sure that those languages are aiming at the same fields. Go and D both have garbage collection - they seem to be focusing more on replacing Java/C++. Rust focuses on manual memory...
  3. Ah, you're right - I got the facts slightly...

    Ah, you're right - I got the facts slightly wrong. logind was always a systemd project, but only in systemd v205 did the systemd (the init daemon) become a hard dependency. In that context, systemd...

    tldr; It's not the software, it's how it's managed.

    I use Systemd, but I understand why people are upset about it. It's not about the software at all, it's about the way the project is run....

    Won't happen - just because they create one package manager, doesn't mean the others disappear. Apt and Yum are considered to the main two standards, but you've still got all sorts of others, like...

    It looks like Lennart has finally embraced the idea of designing his own operating system.
    A constant theme throughout his work seems to be that he values the envisioned use case over the system's...

    No problem. Actually, a related issue I had recently was Chrome being horribly slow, since btrfs increased its cache's latency. Mounting ~/.cache/chromium as a tmpfs gave that a pretty big boost as...

    My understanding is that most of the problems with audio stem from ALSA (in the kernel anyway - Pulseaudio is only really needed to bandage over its problems for most people). ALSA apparently has a...

    As have we - what did you think Gentoo users did while waiting for portage to emerge packages? :P



    Actually, if you want hibernation to work, you need at least as much swap as you have RAM. I...

    I would have thought most people who use Steam on Linux have both native and Wine versions installed - I certainly do.
    I definitely pay extra attention to games with native Linux support (because...

    The approach you suggest would be less responsive. i.e. it would take more iterations to reach the desired state. Hysteresis (jumping between states) would be a problem too, depending on how you...
  12. The issue with jumping between the max and min...

    The issue with jumping between the max and min frequencies is that it assumes the job is cpu-bound and finishes quickly. Consider something like video playback, where you have a moderate but...

    Funny, I've got at least a dozen games on Steam that work completely fine through WINE (Gold rating or higher on appdb).
    Most people don't care if the game is native or not, they care if it works....

    Debian orients itself around its stable releases. I can't see them letting KDE5 until it's proven to be solid. Whether that can happen in 6 months is anyone's guess...

    I agree. Facebook is probably doing just as much (if not more) interesting stuff in the open source sphere as Google. Btrfs, Hack and D come to mind...

    I've been using btrfs for all my file systems for almost a year. Here's some general advice:

    Any distro with a relatively up-to-date kernel is a good choice. (Stay away from anything before...

    The timing on this is serendipitous - I was just working on getting DQt (a Qt wrapper library for D) working.
    D is an awesome language - it's a shame it's not more well known.


    I'm looking...

    Have you tried using Sabayon? It's a Gentoo derivative that uses binary packages for most things, but let's you use portage when you need it. This means that you only need to worry about USE flags...

    That's correct. You know you've fucked up when even one of the top kernel maintainers can't get it working.
