    Default Linux Kernel Developers Fed Up With Ridiculous Bugs In Systemd

    Phoronix: Linux Kernel Developers Fed Up With Ridiculous Bugs In Systemd

    A patch was sent out today to the Linux kernel mailing list that would hide the "debug" string from showing up within the /proc/cmdline output. Why? To workaround a systemd bug. This has set off Linus Torvalds on another epic tirade...

    It would have been funnier if this had happenend when debian was chosing systemd vs upstart. so much for omg systemd is just perfect.

    No one, even its supporters, had ever claimed systemd was perfect. We just said it was better than the alternatives which apparently every distro out there other than Gentoo and Slackware agreed with. What I'm curious about is what is making systems crash from too much output. Buffer overflow maybe?

    Angry There is more than one Poettering?!

    There is actually another person on this planet as abrasive as Poettering? Wow. And apparently even in the same development team. Wow again. And once again rudely ignoring users and other developers. Nothing new there

    Fortunately he has found his match. What Linus wants, Linus gets Let's hope this is a humbling lesson for the systemd developers. Let's also hope their manager will step up and do something about this behaviour cause clearly these 5 year olds need some serious hand holding. And maybe a good spanking

    Fanboys will never learn. Systemd holds no real advantage over sysvint and all its perceived advantages are either superfluous daemons that re-invent things better implemented somewhere or pure cosmetics like slightly faster boot times. Are those worth all the trouble we have to put up with and all the freedom we stand to lose? In my opinion - absolutely not. But fanboys will never learn.

    Apart from, you know, being actually supported...
