  1. 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...
  2. Well, my point was exactly that mdev wasn't a...

    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.

  3. 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...
  5. Giving "soft" scheduling priorities by using...

    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....
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  9. systemd employs powerful kernel security features...

    systemd employs powerful kernel security features like "kernel capabilities" and namespaces (and cgroup) that can protect all daemons on the system. So eg. a daemon can have "NoNewPrivileges" and...
  10. That some of the many systemd developer are...

    That some of the many systemd developer are actually solving decades old, extremely hard problems like the kernel console support, should be praised.

    There have been endless debates over this on...

    The only program deprecated was ConsoleKit. In fact it was handed over to a Ubuntu maintainer, Martin Pitt, who was the one chosen to continue the project: Here is the hand over mail:...
  12. Of course. Nobody is forcing anything...

    Of course.




    Nobody is forcing anything upon anybody. Nobody is forcing you to use Fedora or any other systemd distro, just like Slackware isn't forcing systemd users to use a SysVinit variant...
  13. Life is difficult for you because nobody want to...

    Life is difficult for you because nobody want to develop for the systemd hater crowd. You just love attacking opens source developers, upstream projects like Gnome, and all the distros who have...
  14. Like what? The only core components in systemd is...

    Like what? The only core components in systemd is the init/process controller (systemd), udev, and journald. And yes, even those can be removed too, which is explained in the docs. The sNTP client...
  15. systemd have been in distros since 2011 and that...

    systemd have been in distros since 2011 and that RHEL would be using it have been known for almost as long. But a lot of people, you inclusive, seems to have totally ignored to actually study how it...
  16. The systemd developers do actually listen to...

    The systemd developers do actually listen to people, which is why the project is evolving like it does. The extreme hate against systemd and Poettering that some people are showing, have no basis in...

    Are you sure you belong in the Linux community?

    Anyway, your monomaniacal content free rants about "CancerD" (just take a look on your own posting history) about a piece of software your don't...

    You are contradicting yourself here; If you really believe in an OS of interchangeable parts, stop looking enviously at either udev or logind, and start making alternatives. Logind was always a part...

    Notice that this isn't about the Jesuit astronomers, but about some members of an academy. Looking at the paragraph above you will see that the Jesuit astronomers quickly repeated Galileo's...

    There was nothing that they could see through the telescope that could decide for or against the heliocentric worldview. They weren't afraid of having their doctrines contradicted of the same reason....
