    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.''

    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...

    X (as an implementation) wasn't always like this. The whole let's-move-the-graphics-drivers-into-user-space thing was done because some people wanted to port it over to closed source platforms. The...

    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...

    The resource you're referring to (voluntary development effort) is a function of the degree of interest from developers.

    You can test if _netdev gets recognized for fstab mounts like this:

    $ systemctl show path-of-your-mount.mount | grep network

    It should yield some output similar to this:

    `_netdev' is useless outside of fstab anyway. It's meant to be parsed by init implementations during bootup/shutdown only. For example, systemd uses it to order network mounts after network.target....

    Strictly speaking, the ALSA related modules from libpulse use a tiny part of alsalib (the daemon itself doesn't), but that's only because alsa-lib is the way to do basic stuff like device enumeration...
