    USB suspend is unrelated to the overall power state (like power-on, suspend, hibernate etc.) of your machine. It's usually controlled by the OS on a per-device basis. For example, you could tell the...

    Might be worth retesting with USB power management turned off. Some devices stop working when woken up from USB suspend.

    FWIW, what's been bothering me since I first started using systemd is the naming policy used for those types of unit files which encode paths in their file names. Specifically .mount unit files....
  5. systemd.service(5)...

    systemd.service(5) is probably what you're looking for, specifically the Type= statement. In short, systemd lets you configure its behavior for such cases.

    The whole issue is a social one anyway. As many of us know very well, using BSD, or any other OS, for that matter, can be a means to identify oneself as part of a social group. Having Linux...

    No, it ain't, and there's no such thing as reliable starting of services in general. For this to work, the (init) system would have to be able to know in advance whether a given service will execute...
  8. No, you can't, because that's not a list of...

    No, you can't, because that's not a list of dependencies for systemd.
    It's ``a list of packages that need to be downloaded in order to build a basic Linux system.''
  9. Ironically, that ain't even the case. Systemd...

    Ironically, that ain't even the case. Systemd reacts to events as well, otherwise it wouldn't be able to make e.g. hot plugging work. It just doesn't make the whole event thing a sacred cow and the...

    How exactly are they doing the hijacking? By writing more copylefted free software for use in a copylefted free software environment?
    There is no hijacking. That's exactly the kind of behavior that...

    Every PC implementing UEFI version 2.2 or later should allow you to change the UEFI platform key and therefore give you full control over what the system considers a trusted boot payload.

    Freedom is an abstract concept. If one wants to talk in a meaningful fashion about applying that concept to the world, they need to get concrete. That's what you missed when you took that aphorism...

    No it's not. It's denying certain specific freedoms while granting certain other specific freedoms, and the BSD licenses are no different in that regard.

    Ever read the GPL?
    Ensuring the freedom to try to gain control over $some_project is one the reasons for its existence.
    If you want to know what the absence of that freedom (plus a few others)...

    From reading through Aaron Seigo's post, I think he's confused and misled by a false notion of community and makes unfounded assumptions on how people are supposed to behave. No wonder he then draws...

    Your analogy is too simplistic. Implementing a feature that's useful for someone else but doesn't interest yourself is not the same thing.

    Also, a distro like Arch is not about getting into a...

    `Troll' is a derogatory term for `child'. Adults do not troll. [1] Consequently, BO$$ must be a child and children often require someone to explain to them how the world works. I don't mind spending...
