  1. Not sure whether I've grasped what the issue is,...

    Not sure whether I've grasped what the issue is, but in case you were trying to use `systemctl isolate ...' for this: don't. This is likely not what you want and will almost certainly kill processes...
  2. The ironic part of this conflict is that those...

    The ironic part of this conflict is that those gentlemen who like to present themselves as legitimate followers of the `School of True Unix Paradigms & Ideas' are in fact actively contributing to...
  3. But the name is dnf's best feature, since it's so...

    But the name is dnf's best feature, since it's so easy to type on a QWERTY keyboard. In contrast, y-u-m is assigned to only one finger (right index). That's an ergonomic catastrophe.
  4. I'd say this is the sort of situation that a)...

    I'd say this is the sort of situation that a) should almost never happen in practice and b) should be handled by an admin manually, given that the OOM killer was likely disabled on purpose for that...
  5. That ain't so. Hell, would our systems suck if...

    That ain't so. Hell, would our systems suck if they were *that* fragile. I mean, we're not talking about MS-DOS here.

    To begin with, each and every program is inherently limited in terms of memory...
  6. This whole comparison between cgroups and nice is...

    This whole comparison between cgroups and nice is pointless. Cgroups does resource partitioning. Nice works on isolated processes. The two concepts do overlap to some degree but are otherwise...
  7. Right. However, practically speaking, those...

    Right. However, practically speaking, those `kernel features' aren't features at all as long as they're not exposed in a meaningful way. A feature that's not usable without e.g. hacking together a...
  8. Seriously, from where Lennart stands there's not...

    Seriously, from where Lennart stands there's not much to worry about:


    Almost every general purpose distro that matters has adopted his work.
    Having a healthy number of notably incompetent...
  9. Arch users who reinstall on a regular basis are...

    Arch users who reinstall on a regular basis are not doing it right. The whole point of using a rolling distro is to avoid reinstallations.

    When Galileo Galilei was accused of heresy and...

    When Galileo Galilei was accused of heresy and put before a tribunal of the catholic church, he invited his judges to take a look through his telescope. They refused and said: ``Don't bother us with...

    I'd recommend getting a Qualcomm Atheros based card that works with the ath9k driver on Linux. A few examples:

    3T3R MIMO:
    SparkLAN WPEA-128N

    2T2R MIMO:
    Unex DNXA-116
    Unex DNXA-97
    Unex...

    Actually, that's not all it does. Speed was never even the primary motivation behind it. In fact, socket activation solves the exact problem (manual configuration of relationships between services)...

    Linus had two private projects going on back then. One of them was simply learning about the i386 ISA by playing around with it. The other one was writing a terminal emulator for reading news on...
  14. It's based on xcompmgr.

    It's based on xcompmgr.
  15. USB suspend is unrelated to the overall power...

    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....
  18. 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.
  19. The whole issue is a social one anyway. As many...

    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...
  20. No, it ain't, and there's no such thing as...

    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...
